    Chasing Glaciers Update

    A lot has happened since we first told you about the Chasing Glaciers project featuring Patagonia ambassadors Alison Gannett and Zoe Hart. Zoe injured her ankle pretty early in the trip but she healed well enough for the team to successfully make the first female ski descent of Mt. Workman. Congratulations to Alison and Zoe for this accomplishment and for helping to spread the word about global warming.

    There was however a very scary time after summit/descent day. The trip’s photographer, Bill Stevenson, became separated from the team and had to spend the night on the glacier, under a rock, in not much more than his Retro-X fleece. The team had no idea where he was or if he was okay. Watch this video to see how it all turned out. Then head over to chasingglaciers.com and get caught up on all the videos from the trip -- click “Expedition Videos” in the left nav to access the archive.
