TR: Antarctica ski trip 2008 with video

post #1 of 12
Thread Starter 
 One year ago we boarded a ship in Ushuaia, Argentina to head to Antarctica for a skiing adventure. It was an amazing experience to say the least. It has taken me one year to finally produce a video from all the footage I shot while we were there. There's some good skiing footage, and a lot of amazing wildlife & scenery shots. The video is embedded in a short blog post and can be found here; http://www.somegood.ca/Site/Blog/Entries/2009/10/31_Antarctica_Ski_Cruise_2008_video.html I suspect there will be a few photos floating around some of the ski magazines from our trip in the coming months. Ice Axe Expeditions is setting sail for Antarctica again any day with another boat load of skiers. Hopefully some reports from their trip starts filing in soon.

Very cool!  I just watched your video.  It is amazing the journey skiing can take someone on.  Looks like you had quite the adventure.
Thanks,
JF

Superb blog TR. Great pictures, undoubtedly a trip of a lifetime. Seemed pretty hairy some of those zones, presumably someone with you, the guide etc had some idea of what lay beneath! Excellent story, exhilarating.

Very cool trip!  I have seen and thought about a dive trip there but haven't quite gotten up the nerve to go diving in 27 degree water.

My guide had previously taken clients to the summit of the Vinson Massif but that was certainly the first any one of us (guides included) had skied those areas. It is difficult to find detailed maps of the area let alone find anyone who has skied there. I'm sure we skied over more than a few crevasses, but for the most part things were pretty well bridged when we were there.

Wow, great trip and video! Skiing with Penguins!!
I loved your Cypress park video on the next page too. Such skiing in close proximity to a major city!

Beautiful video, somgood.

The phrase "trip of a lifetime" comes to mind.

Thanks so much for posting it here.
