I’ve just returned from another epic 3 weeks ski touring in Iceland and Greenland with six keen kiwi skiers. We met in Reykjavik and headed to the north side of the country. The skiing was amazing, high above the deep blue ocean. After a week in Iceland we flew to […]
I’ve just returned from the 60 day Spectre Expedition. We covered 1,700km, climbed the Spectre mountain via anew route and battled weather, sustrugi and crevasses. It was an amazing adventure and we completed it in good style. Possibly the first ever expedition of it’s type in Antarctica! Check out a […]
At the southern end of the Transantartic Mountains lie a group of Granite mountains reminiscent of the famous Fitzroy massif in Patagonia called the Organ Pipe Peaks, a subgroup of the Gothic Mountains within the greater Queen Maud Mountains. Their centre piece the awesome spire of the Spectre. I’m leaving […]
Just checking in from Gulmarg, India in mid February and happy to report epic snow cover and there’s no evidence of the debilitating strikes that plagued the region for 5 months over summer. The locals are stoked we came back and very happy to see the few people skiing the […]
We arrived back from Antarctica this morning and what another amazing trip. This was my third trip to ski on the Peninsula and I’ve never skied so much powder! We had a great smooth fast trip down on the 100m ship, with fine dining and great service. There was almost […]
As the winter winds down in Wanaka, New Zealand we look back at one of the best winters that NZ has seen in a decade. Great snow, deep powder, stable conditions and exploring runs that I hadn’t skied in years. Here is a photo of the south west face of Mt […]
There’s been some fantastic early season powder this year with regular storms and great coverage. I have a feeling the cost of a days heli-skiing in NZ is going to raise substantially next year, so get in this year and enjoy a very special day out……
Helis-skiing in June, unheard of…… Check out this panoramic photo from the top of the Headlong Glacier. What a spot for lunch!
I’ve teamed up with the Sea Adventurer, a 100m Antarctic cruise ship loaded with like minded adventurers to zap quickly across the Drake Passage on a two week expedition to explore the spectacular Peninsula. Ski/Snowboard tour on glaciers and snow slopes ending in the ocean; View whales, seals, dolphins and […]
Whare Kea Chalet high in the Buchanan Mountains at Albertburn Saddle has three amazing live web cameras. Don’t believe there’s no snow when you look at the ski resort cameras, look here to see what the heli-skiing will be like……. Click Here.
