IceAxe.TV Antarctic Peninsula Ski Cruise Update 6

Photo: Scott Fennell. For our last day of skiing in Antarctica, the ship brought us to some mellow terrain around Discovery Bay on Greenwich Island, where the emphasis seemed to be on seeing seals and penguins, rather than skiing. And since it was long night of partying on the ship for many the night before, […]

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. The highest peaks on the island push over 5K’, but they are heavily glaciated and crevassed, making travel extremely dangerous and difficult. Therefore, our […]

Thomas is the ski category manager for Black Diamond Equipment and Adam Clark is a pretty well known photographer in the ski world. Skiing up to the Marshall is pretty […]

A Little Skiing Out of Ushuaia

Ushuaia harbor. Got out skiing for a few hours today. No real plan…just cruise up to the glacier and tour around to get my legs back under me and grab a feel for the conditions. I’m glad I brought a couple pairs of skis with me, since the snow conditions are extremely variable, ranging from […]

36 Hours Later…And Now In Ushuaia

Sam Bass psyched to have made it to Ushuaia, Argentina. Wow…36 hours of non-stop traveling…and now I’m here in Ushuaia with an amazing group of people. It was very cool to see the group size heading to Antarctica slowly grow from just three of us flying out of Jackson, to larger numbers rendezvousing in Atlanta…and […]
