The Terra Bus is used to transport people to and from the sea ice runway, located about 1 mile from town. It can transport 50 people. We spent more than one hour in it today, on the runway, waiting in vain for our flight. Each tire is about 3 ft wide and 6 fr tall.
This monstrous piece of equipment (compare it to the size of the people) is used here as a snow plow. Its price tag: $140k.
The Pisten Bully can be configured to transport small cargo, or people (up to 6), or, in this case, as a snoplow.
The Delta can also be configured to transport cargo or people (as shown). Its big fat tires are meant to drive on the sea ice.
And, finally, one of the five National Science Foundation helicopters on station, which transports people and cargo to the nearby camps.
