Isbjorn Diary - by Ash Sethia

"This ‘rest day’ was spent doing the hardest digging that we could possibly do – we dug an 8 man snow hole into snow that was so hard that at some points the snow saw could not even be pushed in (so we made do with brute force and determination).
Anyway everyone pitched in to help with the prospect of after 7 hours of digging (and learning how to glissade down the steep slope that the hole was dug into) it was complete!
So that night we ( all the YEs) went to sleep in the snow hole which was surprisingly warm and draught free which made for a good night’s sleep."
