1. Re: SKIING in Antarctica

Are you talking about a specific kind of skiing expedition ? ie a continent crossing or the like ?

For that you would have to contact specialists as the tourist expedition teams don't branch out into that kind of thing.

Or just a half day of skiing ? During a landing ?

You would have to check to extras offered by each expedition company - some offer kayaking, camping, climbing so there may well be one that offers skiing.

It would only be in a region well away from the wildlife if it was even offered. It would involve considerable work for the expedition team to scope out and mark up a safe crevice free area etc.

Thanks - i've been in contact with folk that have done it!!! so know what direction to go in - thanks for the advice though!

It was just during landing but incorporating kayaking and climbing as well as camping!! Quark do it!

Would love to do a skiing expediation across the continent and maybe bump in to Ran and Co on route!! BUT unfortunately i dont think my "ski legs" or bank balance would hold out!!!

Cheers
