Mid Winter Antarctic Swim

July 02, 2021

Australian Antarctic Division 2021 mid-winter swim

“Happy #MidwintersDay to our 86 hardy expeditioners spending the year at Australia’s four research stations! Swimming doesn't usually happen down south, but it’s an important tradition at this time of year. At Casey research station in east #Antarctica, they braved the #winter #solstice with a sub-zero swim through a hole cut in the sea-ice. On sub-Antarctic Macquarie Island, the team dashed coast-to-coast across the island for a dip in the chilly surf.”

From the Australian Antarctic Division's Casey and Macquarie Island Stations. Learn more about the AAD on their excellent Youtube channel.

Mont has supplied specially designed down clothing to the AAD for the past 20 years.

Lee Side Turns: Spring Touring from Charlotte Pass. By Nick Hall

November 04, 2021

Able to travel into Regional NSW once more, David, Ben and I headed to Charlotte Pass for a day in the hills last weekend. Spurred on by a Winter's worth of snow cam watching, Warren Miller ski edits, and staring at my skis in the gear cupboard, I was only too excited for some backcountry turns.
