Skiing in Antarctica is a bit more complicated then in any other continent this is because you can’t just go to a resort, you will need to book a special team, which takes you there by a yacht and you stay there for about a month skiing, seeing the wild life, all on a yacht.

Bussiness such as chimu adventures; do adventures like this but for a price of $20,000
