#5: Beautiful day

Blowy again overnight but our sled walls do a good job at deflecting wind. Take only a minute to set up. Billowing low clouds to the south appeared as though they’d wreak havoc with navigation but on reaching Fulmar valley pass we had pretty expansive views, making out sea ice in Agard Bay on the east coast. Everyone handled the technical descent through a morass of snow and moraine and we had a windless lunch below the terminal face of Elfenbein glacier. Crossing over to the broad and flat Agard Valley we skied west to the base of Sveig glacier. Given our Vietnamese duo have never skied before, and others very little, it was an impressive achievement covering so much ground.
