Willi’s ski expedition to Antarctica

My dream was to be the first to explore, climb and ski an uncharted mountain in Antarctica.

Warren Miller, his son Kurt and Kurt’s partner Peter Speek gave me the go ahead. The expedition was featured in Warren Miller’s film “Extreme Winter” and on ABC’s segment “Earth Day.”

It took me a year to put this expedition together. The key elements included finding Henry Perk, Chief Pilot of Borek Air, based in Calgary and Gordon Whiltsie, a renowned expert guide. Gordon understood the environment and kept us save on the ice.

Without Henry’s vast experience and thousands of hours flying in the Antarctic, we wouldn’t have made it there and certainly not made it back.

Here are some video clips from the expedition:
