Skip Horner: Sailing And Skiing In Antarctica
Thursday, December 4th, 2014
In December, Skip Horner led a group of adventurers on a skiing expedition to Antarctica. He chartered a 67' steel hulled sloop out of Ushuaia, Aregentina, the southernmost city in the world,and they sailed 770 miles across the treacherous Drake Passage to and from the Antarctic Peninsula. Then for two weeks they sailed through an archipelago of glacier-covered islands along the mainland, dodging icebergs and avoiding the pack-ice as they chose new ski ascents and descents each day.
Skip Horner is an adventure guide extraordinaire. As a mountain guide he was the first person to lead people to the tops of the 7 Summits, the highest peak on each of the seven continents, culminating with Mt. Everest.
He has also led ascents of dozens of other mountains worldwide, including 28 ascents of Kilimanjaro, 8 ascents of Mt. Vinson, the highest peak in Antarctica, and 5 expeditions to Gunnbjornsfjeld, the highest peak in the Arctic. He’s taken people to Himalayan summits for over 30 years. The night's presentation will include stories and photos from some of these amazing trips. Not to be missed!
Rocky Mountaineers Featuring Steve Karkanen & Backcountry Safety
Tuesday, December 9th, 2014, 7PM @ The Trail Head
On Tuesday, December 9th, Steve Karkanen of the West Central Montana Avalanche Foundation will give his annual talk on dangers to be aware of in the winter, and not just in the backcountry. He has a good slide show mainly on the Mt. Jumbo avalanche and the two fatalities in the Flint Creek Range. There will be lots of valuable information. The show lasts about an hour, so there will be time for questions, comments and socializing.
