It seems like the 2009 Antarctic Ski Cruise just happened a few months ago, but once again, it is time to start planning for the ultimate trip down to the White Continent to make some turns in the most amazing place on earth. The trip is organized by Ice Axe Expeditions and the format is […]
I know, I know… everytime I go on a trip it ends up being the best one ever, but in this case, I really mean it. The 2009 Antarctica Ski Cruise was a five-star blast and here are the photos and captions to prove it. http://straightchuter.com/am-content/2009_Ski_Cruise/index.html If and when it happens again (and assuming I […]
I’ll be updating my location from Argentina, the Drake Passage and the Antarctica Peninsula over the next three weeks with a SPOT personal locater beacon. The image below should show my latest position, but you may need to refresh your browser to force an update.

Skiers crossing the Dater Glacier in Antarctica […]
TUNE IN AT 10:00am MST TODAY FOR THE CLUESDAY CLUE-OF-THE-WEEK TO WIN A FREE PAIR OF K2 SKIS! In 2003, I had the good fortune of getting invited along for a trip to the Antarctic Peninsula to try and ski the Bull Ridge on Mt. Francis on Anvers Island. We didn’t make it very far […]
