Summit Camp, also Summit Station, is a year-round research station on the apex of the Greenland Ice Sheet. Its coordinates are variable, since the ice is moving. The station is located 3216 meters above sea level. Summit Camp consist of the Big House (main building), Greenhouse (research building) with attached Berthing Module, a combined garage and generator building, Swiss Tower, the summertime Tent City, and storage buildings.
Summer temperatures range from 0°C to -40°C, and winter temperatures from -25°C to -60°C. During the summer months the camp is accessed via Kangerlussuaq Airport with C-130 Hercules aircraft which land on a 4572 m by 60 m (15,000' by 200') snow runway, which is prepared and regularly groomed for ski-equipped aircraft. Winter access is infrequent, using smaller, ski-equipped aircraft such as a Twin Otter flown by Air Greenland.
