The weather on the Southern part of Kola Peninsula has started to get warmer with day temperatures up to 3 – 4 Celsius around Umba area and bit colder around Varzuga. The snowpack in the vast backcountry is deeper than in many years as mentioned in a previous report. We still have 2 ½ months before we start the season at Grand Varzuga and Umba. Workers will soon be leaving Umba for Grand Varzuga on Snowmobiles to start preparation and a general overhaul on the camp.
