Operations Team

Operating in two distinct geographical areas with varying weather conditions, Open Sky's operations team is a resourceful group of people that serve as the foundation for all of the day-to-day activities.  The operations team maintains and outfits all of the student gear and equipment and packs all of the food for each week's ration.  The team also manages the  fleet of vehicles, ensures that communications systems are operating, maintains each of our base camp locations, and two administrative facilities.
