Front side of the station, with an introductory poster to satisfy people's curiosity, and a fence to keep out the reindeer.

Snow makes nice formations on top of the hill.
The instrument towers are electrically warmed, and therefore free of snow and ice.

This photo was taken in 1995. The instrument towers have been made substantially higher since then, as can be seen from the other photos.
