In order for Pat Morrow to complete his Seven Summits Quest in 1985, he needed to reach Antarctica’s highest mountain, Vinson Massif. He’ll describe the challenges of how, with a handful of mountain and adventure travel guide friends, he formed the travel logistics company Adventure Network International.

He’ll give a brief overview of classic exploration beginning with Scott and Amundsen, and the ongoing evolution of high-end adventure climbs and ski journeys on the icy continent. On a personal level, Pat will show stills and video footage that he shot during the first several seasons of operation as he “migrated” from Canadian winter to Antarctic summer, covering a range of climbing and overland ski expeditions and remote tourist destinations that ANI provided access to, and still does.
