There's extreme skiing, and then there's skiing in Antarctica.
"For the adventurous at heart, climbing a virgin summit is a breathtaking prospect," says Chimu Adventure's Chad Carey, "and to then attach your skis and be the first person to ski down from the summit is just exciting beyond words."
The Australian-based Antarctica specialist company is planning a 28-day adventure on the yacht Icebird departing Ushuaia, Argentina, with an expedition team (and a small mountain of ice-sport and safety equipment) on 19 November 2017. Beyond skiing, intrepid passengers can expect sea-kayaking, mountain climbing and sailing.
