Re: thanks!


Hey there, Ian —
Congrats on getting the GA gig.  I think you’ll enjoy it.
While it is always nice to use your own equipment, skis are a pain to travel with, especially internationally.  The recreation department at McMurdo oversees Gear Issue.  They have a wide variety of skis, boots, and poles for anyone to use.  Free of charge, of course.
Never been XC at MCM, but like Mike said, plan on packed snow and/or ice.  It ain’t like skiing in the Rockies!
Take care, and I’ll see you in August.
