Skiing Antarctica

In Warren Miller’s continuing quest to ski every flake of snow the world over, here is this clip of skiing on or at least near the Antarctic continent:
Skiing Antarctica

This is something of a dear subject for me as I spent a year there myself, though what little skiing I got to do was on some really ancient cross-country skis and on “snow” that would barely take crampons let alone an edge, but enough whining. Cool footage of water and ice and blue sky above.

For some of my own pictures (I really need to get ’round to posting more), see My Year in Antarctica.

  1. Reminds me of Perry Marshall’s great post about Sir Earnest Shackleton’s famed trip to Antarctica. He supposed published the following ad:

    “MEN WANTED:

    FOR HAZARDOUS JOURNEY. SMALL WAGES, BITTER COLD, LONG MONTHS OF COMPLETE DARKNESS, CONSTANT DANGER, SAFE RETURN DOUBTFUL.

    HONOUR AND RECOGNITION IN CASE OF SUCCESS.

    -SIR ERNEST SHACKLETON”

    Lovely.

  2. I forgot to add the link to Perry Marshall’s post:

  3. Would love an opportunity to go myself – the closest I’ll get at the moment is a talk by Sir Ranulph Fiennes in my home town Chester this summer – Great pictures too – I’m jealous!
