AAI guide Zach Lovell called in last night. Team 2 made a full carry to Camp 1 (7,800ft) below Ski Hill. The team did really well and had the benefit of leisurely morning before saddling up and carrying the heavy pack and sleds. Today the plan is to make a cache around 10,000ft to soften the move to Camp 2 (11,200ft). Everyone is in good spirits and excited to get Day 1 out of the way.
