Greenland has gained record amounts of snow and ice over the past few months, and the Arctic has experienced record early sea ice growth.

As originally reported by explorersweb.com, unfavorable conditions have persisted across the ice sheet into September hindering the progress of three separate expeditions.

Despite the poor weather, however, Norwegian sisters Aase and Hanne Seeberg are performing strongly overall on their east-to-west traverse: “They have found deep snow but have skied a regular 20km every day,” reports expedition liaison Lars Ebbeson. “They cleared the Summit [the apex of the Ice Sheet] before the last storm on the east side, so have been able to progress over the last few days.”
