Resumé of Skiing/Cold Climate Experience

Please complete and submit this form when requested.

This summary is not so much an assessment of your suitability to an expedition but an opportunity for Icetrek to determine the collective skills of the team. Many of our previous customers have never skied before or have had limited outdoor experience but have been receptive learners and invaluable team members. Though it is very important to be physically fit, and to have a history of outdoor experience suited to our longer and more demanding trips, the foremost criteria for an Icetrek polar expedition are based on the psychological and emotional; absorb and apply information, determination, tolerance and a spirit of fun.

Please give a brief description of your outdoor experience and interests

How much experience do you have on skis - downhill and/or cross-country?

Have you been to altitude? If so where and to what elevation? This question is relevant to South Pole expeditions.
