Some teams camp well short of Ski Hill. In late June, many of those camps can be seen dropping into huge crevasses that run parallel to the glacier. The compression zone here is quite large, so you don't need to camp right on top of another team. There are several hundred meters of good, relatively stress-free camping to be had here.
Off to the east you're looking up the Northeast Fork of the Kahiltna Glacier, affectionately known as the “Valley of Death” due to its many crevasses and avalanches coming off of the steep flanks of the Kahiltna Peaks. On warm days (and nights) in the late season, the glacier and surrounding mountains come alive with numerous avalanches and rockfall events all around you, especially in the late afternoon and evening. Let the rumblings of these massive mountains rock you to sleep.
In 2018, one of our teams got stuck in one of these storms. We were the only guided team at Camp 1 with one other private solo climber. It snowed five feet on us and the entire mountain was on hold for more than a week. Stretching five days of food into eight, and without enough fuel to waste on coffee, things looked grim. However, the storm cleared and we were able to move swiftly up the mountain from there. Crazy enough, our summit day consisted of T-shirt temperatures and bluebird weather. So, if you get stuck in a storm at the beginning of your trip, stay calm and try not to eat all of your snacks at once.
Dig your cache hole the evening before you depart for Camp 2. This is a good time to reevaluate those "light extras" that seemed like a good idea at home. Cache them, along with socks and undies that you've been wearing for the past few—possibly very hot—days.
This is also a good time to dial in your other systems, such as your cooking and dining plan. Sure, you could save a little weight by not using a kitchen tent, but you'll curse that decision during the first four-day storm.
An ice axe laying on the snow will disappear under a few centimeters of snow. Arrange your "sharps" (you know, the pokey things like trekking poles, ice axes and snowshoes) in a tight pile, all sticking up out of the snow. It'll take a full meter of powder to bury them.
Speaking of sharps, keep them away from your tents! Axes and snowshoes can make for good tent anchors if you don't have sufficient parachute-type anchors, but take care not to get them or the rough edge of that shovel near your cold, taut tent fabric.
