Snow Machines

Part of being in Antarctica is training and lots of it.  Luckily most of it is a lot of fun.  This was one of many surreal experiences that Ive had here so far.  Sitting on a snowmobile on the sea ice in watching a C 17 land and helos (helicopters) take off and land from Mactown with epic mountains in the background.

 

Mactown has a fleet of Ski Doo Skandia sleds.  Most are 550 fans with super wide tracks for towing traction.
