Team 1 led by Tad McCrea has safely and successfully flown into Base Camp (May 2nd).

They are one of the first teams on the mountain and will begin building a fortified camp, and quickly review glacier skills and sled travel before making their way to Camp 1 at the base of Ski Hill (7800ft).

Tad, Aili, and Britt are excited about the skills and fitness level of this crew and have already made a strong team dynamic.

More later today!
