Snow clearing

The low-band array (LBA) will be located on the expanse of ground to the south of the high-band array (HBA). At the time of the site survey in mid-May, this was still completely covered in snow. We brought in a tractor to clear off the bulk of it and expose some of the rock underneath.

The snow tractor arrives at the site.

Making headway into the deeper parts.

Major snow banks of snow.

With the site mostly clear, natural sunlight heating the dark ground underneath will rapidly melt the remaining snow ready for the work starting on the site in early June.
