Back in snowy Jackson from most recent travels to Argentina and Antarctica.

Over the next month I will be writing a few online posts and a feature magazine story about our ski exploration in Ushuaia and Antarctica with Ice Axe Expeditions. With that to come, this is a short recap with photos of my 2nd visit to ski guide and explore on the white continent with some wonderful adventurers/guests/guides from across the globe.

BIG THANKS to Ice Axe Team Leaders- Doug Stoup & Karyn Stanley – for another incredible journey to the Peninsula. And also to the amazing Quark Expedition Ship Staff.

The Ski Cruise will be offered again in November 2014. For more information or questions, contact Ice Axe or any of our guides.


First, a week skiing in Ushuaia- Glen Poulson, Jorge Kozulj, Rich Meyer, Sarah Halas

A few of us did an “unsanctioned” Polar Plunge off the top decks of the Sea Adventurer. 50ft – Fun to jump big!
