Skiing the Planet with Doug Stoup


Doug Stoup is the world’s foremost polar guide and polar expedition leader. Starting his career in Los Angeles, Doug fell in love with Antarctica 25 years ago on the first ski and snowboard descent of the highest peak in Antarctica, The Vinson Massif (16,077 ft). Doug has pioneered skiing in the Antarctic Peninsula and has skied to both the North and South Poles more than anyone else on the planet. 


Doug will take you through 25 years of adventure from North Pole to South Pole and many expeditions in between.

Doug Stoup is the founder and President of both Ice Axe Expeditions and the Ice Axe Foundation. He is an educator dedicated to sharing the profound beauty and fragility of our planet, and he continues to push the limits of human endurance leading disabled adventurers in the polar environments while raising money for charities. Doug is an expedition leader, ski guide, environmentalist, humanitarian, father, and husband.
