North Face riders head to Antarctica to find first descents

Big Mountain rider Xavier de Le Rue and skier Lucas Debari have been traveling through the Antarctic Ocean on a boat called “The Golden Fleece” searching out first descents on Antarctica. Their expedition, funded by outdoor apparel company North Face, will be released as a film this fall. In the meantime, the crew has been sending rough edits and short clips to the mainland.

Here de La Rue and Debari offer a guided tour of their confined and temporary home.
