Well, for those that are interested, know that Doug Stoup and IceAxe.TV are indeed offering not only one, but FOUR […]

IceAxe.TV Antarctic Peninsula Ski Cruise Update 5

Photo Scott Fennell It has been really hard to believe all the good weather we have been having, and although it snowed a little on us late in the afternoon today, it has been more or less blue skies for the majority of the trip. I haven’t worm my Gore-Tex clothing once so far and […]

IceAxe.TV Antarctic Peninsula Ski Cruise Update 4

Though the day started out a bit greybird, it looked as though the sun would burn through the clouds as we shuttled to the shore of Livingston Island to ski yesterday.

Wow, the day is finally here and today I am off to Ushuaia, and the southern most point of Argentina and South America. It will take two full days to get there, but luckily the longest flight to the southern hemisphere […]

Antarctica…HELLS YEAH!!!

If you told me a year ago that I’d be preparing to go to ski in Antarctica in just over a month from now…I would have said…“bullshit”. But low and behold, the stars have come into alignment and I will be joining the IceAxe.TV crew on their Antarctic Ski Cruise which sets sail from Ushuaia, […]

IceAxe.TV’s 2009 Antarctic Ski Cruise

I don’t know about you, but skiing the globe’s southern most continent has been a dream of mine ever since I saw a slide show given by snowboarder John Griber here in Jackson about 6 years ago. The problem is though, it is so expensive to get there and the logistics can be a nightmare […]
