Team 8/Booyahkahshaw awoke to some snow and wind so decided to take a weather day at 14 Camp with good forecasts ahead

Hi, this is Danny calling to check in for Team Booyahkahshaw/Denali Team 8.

We had to take a weather day today at 14 Camp today. Not a big deal, just a little bit of wind, a little bit of snow overnight, and stayed pretty windy throughout the day.

Forecast is looking really good for the next few days after this though and hopefully we’ll get our cache in at the fixed lines tomorrow and move up to 17,000 feet shortly after that, and summit hopefully Friday or Saturday.

That’s the plan, check back tomorrow for an update. Thanks, bye.
