We’re loading up on the 330-foot Sea Adventurer in Ushuaia, Argentina (the furthest south city on Earth) this afternoon. We’re heading to Antarctica with Ice Axe Expeditions. I will be guiding 4 clients for 6 days of backcountry skiing in Antarctica next week. Fired up.
It’ll take two days in the boat to cross the infamous Drake Passage and arrive at the Antarctic Peninsula. Once there, we’ll be climbing and skiing for 6 days before returning home.
We’ve skied the past 5 days here in Ushuaia and I’ve been blown away. Easy access and great terrain make the backcountry here shine.
This will be the trip of a lifetime and my 4 clients are strong. We’ll be documenting the adventure as best we can and I’ll certainly get up a trip report once back in the Americas.
