Feeling more like winter, This morning it was 13 when waking up. I think it would be safe to say that some sort of ice stabilizers/insteps/yaktraks are necessary for hiking the rest of the winter.

Alex, Welcome and have a great winter. maybe the snow will melt before my wife and I come up for a couple of days in April. However at 70 years young we have very good crampons. We needed them this Nov. right after the big snow.

Alex I hope you have a good winter stay at the lodge. Hope to meet you sometime in January as I plan to stay at the shelter sometime during the month.

Alex, thanks for keeping the pictures going. Maybe you could tell us about what you do in a normal day up there sometime. I know that everyone is curious. Stay safe

Alex - You're a brave man!! Can't imagine what it would be like to be alone on the mountain. Peaceful, I would think, but have never experienced that kind of solitude so am just guessing. Love reading your posts and seeing your pictures - keep them coming so we can experience this adventure with you.

Totally jealous that you can stay up there alone all winter. Its been my dream to live alone on a mountain. Especially a place as beautiful as that. I was up there last week and it was magnificent.

I agree with those above; Just once, I'd love to be on the mountain for a week or so during the middle of winter; I think the caretaker's job would be just great. Enjoy.

Does the water flow all year or does it freeze and thaw?

the water from the spring flows all year long. The winter caretaker has to get his water from the spring and carry it up to the kitchen. If you stay in the shelter, you will need to get your water from the spring.

either Alex fell asleep, it's extremely busy up there in the off season, or Alex hates computers.
