~ Doug and the Ice Axe Expeditions Team
We have been on four Antarctic Ski Expeditions with Doug Stoup. He is an excellent leader and has a group of world-class professional ski guides from around the world. There is nowhere on earth like Antarctica and Doug knows it better than anyone on earth.
This trip is dedicated to skiing and other activities on the continent. Ice Axe uses world-class professional guides and has years of experience with this program. I have several friends that have been on this trip as clients and guides, and I had only heard amazing stories of previous trips. There was so much more than the skiing –- wildlife (could not get enough of the penguins!), icebergs, glaciers, and the non-stop scenery. The Ice Axe clients and guides are fascinating people from all over the world –- the stories and experiences of this group were endlessly entertaining.
I am an 18-year-old soon-to-be college student currently on my gap year. I have always loved traveling, but visiting Antarctica was something altogether different. It was the excitement and beauty of experiencing a new place mixed in with unforgettable people and the opportunity to explore the continent in my absolute favorite way of travel in the world . . . snowboarding!! I always want to strive for more and push myself to do cooler, crazier things, but this trip taught me at a young age what it feels like to have a dream come true. It was everything I could have wished for and more.
My wife and I operate a cat skiing lodge called Mustang Powder in British Columbia, Canada, and a friend and I organized a large group of skiers and sea kayakers to do this trip. The Ice Axe staff were all professional, courteous, helpful, and passionate about Antarctica and the expedition. It is hard to describe what is so special about Antarctica, but it is awe-inspiring and I highly recommend this trip!
