Harsh conditions at the APEX control building

The ArTeMiS team shovel snow to get into the APEX control building on the Chajnantor Plateau in northern Chile. In the foreground is Laurent Clerc, in the middle are Jérôme Martignac (left) and François Visticot (right), and in the background by the door to the building is Yannick Le Pennec. You can compare these photos with a view of the building under more normal conditions.
