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 […]

I’m headed to the east coast for Gore-Tex camp today and I figure this will be the last gear list update before I head back to Jackson and then jump on a plane (or five) on Sunday to head southward to Antarctica and then on to Aconcagua. My mind has been racing and no matter […]

Antarctica/Aconcagua Gear Check: Medications/Perscriptions

If there is one thing I hate…it’s taking pills. I don’t really like to mess with my body, I rarely get sick enough to warrant taking prescription medications and I often to prefer to feel like crap than mask what my body is going through. That being said, you also want to stack the odds […]

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, […]
