The following is a rolling list of routes I’ve skied and climbed during the 2021/22 winter season

December 2021

I was lead Mountain Guide responsible for glacial safety on a ground breaking heliski expedition to the Antarctic Peninsula. We used two vessels (and two helicopters) and undoubtedly skied new lines around Cierva and Brialmont Coves as well as ski touring a new peak on Bluff Island. This is the second heliski trip I have led to this vast and wild area.

Tim was representing Spirit of Sydney Expeditions, Arctic Elements and Pelorus.
