Skiing in Antarctica last fall with Ice Axe Expeditions and Doug Stoup was one the most memorable things I have ever done and I will cherish those days for the rest of my life. I know there are a lot of people out there that dream of doing the same and while the Ice Axe Australis trip (23 days, 8 clients, 2 guides) happening this fall might be a bit too pricey for many skiers out there to afford, the Ice Axe trip aboard the Clipper Adventurer (13 days, 100 clients) might just be within reach for some.
The pricing and itinerary have just been released for this trip and much like the 2009 trip…it will definitely sell out. Spots on this trip will be sold on a first come, first serve basis, upon completion of the registration materials.
