On the White Continent

It was an exciting day for the Last Degree Ski team. They were picked up at 5:45AM and taken to the airport to board the flight to Antarctica. The plane went wheels up at 9:15AM and after a 4-hour flight, landed at Union Glacier Camp. The team got settled and had lunch with some of the teams that were waiting to fly back to Punta Arenas. Our team spent the afternoon exploring the camp, packing their sled bags, and taking their skis for a test drive. The weather is clear and calm at -11°C with no wind however it seems that there may be some incoming weather. The next step is another flight from Union Glacier to the 89th Degree where their journey will begin in earnest. Stay tuned for updates and listen below to the daily AUDIO UPDATE.
