Current Plow Crew Work Locations: The crew made it to mile Eielson Visitor Center yesterday. The wet and heavy snow has been a struggle in comparison to previous years. It has the consistency of a 7/11 slushy and has been frustrating to work with. During a normal year we wouldn't find these type of conditions until we get out to Kantishna if at all. The warmer than normal temps have been noticed from start to finish.
Steam Crew Locations: None
Snow Depths: 3' was the average from Little Stony flats to the Eielson Visitor Center.
Aufeis Depths: 0
