Mike Hamill called in Sunday, somewhere south of 89 degrees. They were able to fly to the 89 degree S point on Saturday and even got in a couple of km. that day. Sunday was a full ski day. So far, so good. Mike said the winds weren’t unreasonable. When going towards the Pole, any wind is going to be in your face normally. The katabatic winds sink and head north from the Pole. You just hope they’re not too strong. The scenery – well, that’s not going to change much for the entire 100 km. The terrain is relatively ‘featureless’ once you get that far south.
But Vanessa and Mike are off and running. All’s good.
