His experiences are as unique and uncommon as the messages he imparts to others.  It’s only through immense focus, perseverance, and hard work that Doug has accomplished unheard of feats throughout his career.  Sharing the challenges, achievements, and lessons of his adventures, either through keynotes, workshops, or actual expeditions, is one of Doug’s principle rewards. He owns and operates Ice Axe Expeditions, The world’s foremost ski mountaineering and adventure company. Ice Axe leads ski mountaineering trips to Antarctica, Morocco, Greenland, Spitsbergen, North and south Poles and Stand Up Paddle and fishing trips to the Brazilian Amazon.
