Around the station...

Snow machines. A good way of getting around to the ARA stations, drill camp, and out to the IceCube lab.

Power plant. Station runs with about 640kW power generation. Some of the science is electrically hungry. Waste heat from the power plant keeps the station warm.

Storage in one of the (semi-buried) arches.

The IceCube Chariot. Built from leftover bits of the cable reels and pallets. (This photo was from last year. Who knows if the chariot will appear this year...)

Quiet lounge/lending library in the Station.
