A planned 4,400-kiolmeter South Pole expedition was forced to turn back after a week on the ice.
The Lynx Adventure is being sponsored by BRP, with a four-person team driving Lynx Commander Touratech snowmachines on the frozen southern continent.
The expedition ran into trouble on Dec. 28, when a broken ski forced the team to turn back toward the coast. Instead, the group camped out, and by early January had climbed a mountain nearby, which they named Mount Suomi in honor of that country’s 100th anniversary of independence.
The group planned to continue exploring Antarctic even after its initial plan to reach the South Pole had to be scrapped.
