Installing weather stations in the bitter-cold of Antarctica is all in a day’s work for Ronald Ross, an Australian-based independent electrical consultant. Ronald first collaborated with ANI in 2007, to design and install an automatic weather station (AWS) at the threshold of Patriot Hills ice runway.
We're not bragging when we say that ANI guides are some of the most experienced and talented guides around. Meet Scott Woolums, who has 30+ years of guiding experience under his belt, including seven Everest summits, 40+ Denali expeditions, and innumerable expeditions to other 'fun corners of the world.'
ANI owner, Nick Lewis, spent hours poring over maps and aerial photographs, searching for a route across the head of the Larson Valley, to access ‘the far side’ of Mount Sporli. An exploratory expedition to the area revealed more climbing and ski terrain than he could have imagined.
