Daylight at last!
Filling the Melt Tank
The melt tank provides all our water. It's set in a tunnel complex buried under the snow with a half-meter diameter pipe into which we chuck snow to fill it. Once a week Andy or Matt build a large cone around the hole with a bulldozer. This makes life easier as we just have to chip away at the top and let gravity do the rest. With four people it takes about half an hour to fill.
