POLAR EXPLORER AND IPGA MASTER GUIDE
With heavy hearts we learned that Dixie Dansercoer passed on June 8, 2021 when he fell into a crevasse during an expedition in Greenland. During his collaboration with 57hours, Dixie left a deep impact on us not only for his great mastery of polar adventures, but also for his life wisdom. Listening to Dixie talk about his explorations and snowkiting was immersing, thrilling and helped you realize what people can achieve with proper preparation and unyielding spirit. Dixie had more than 30 years of polar exploration under his belt, was an accredited IPGA (International Polar Guides Association) Master Guide, author, photographer, public speaker, and executive director of Polar Circles. He was one of only four people to have crossed the complete Arctic Ocean and the Antarctic continent. He will be deeply missed and remembered by the 57hours team.
