Our second Mount Vinson expedition team has assembled in Punta Arenas. And they are looking forward to kicking off 2019 in style! They rang in the new year in Chile last night and now are completing the pre-flight expedition logistics. Today and tomorrow they will be organizing gear and attending the Antarctica flight briefing. Hopefully, the weather continues to cooperate and the team will fly to Antarctica as scheduled on Thursday, January 3rd.
We are stoked to start off this exciting year of climbing adventures with teams on the ice in Antarctica!
Did you know: Since 2017, the city of Punta Arenas and its region have their own time zone: they use summer time during the whole year (UTC−3).
