I want to thank everybody for following the Denali Climb and supporting our Cold Love documentary. As with each of my last two attempts the mountain has been quiet a challenge. I imagine I will try again someday with a few tweaks to the plan and once the difficulties of the last trip have faded from my mind.
The next fun challenge will be working on the production of the Cold Love documentary. We’ve gathered some great footage here in Alaska to compliment 20 years of past expedition film. All of which we’ll compile to tell the compelling story of adventure, climate change and our love and need for snow and ice. Work will begin this spring on production with a release date for late summer/fall. we will keep folks posted via OneWorldEndeavors.com and our Facebook.
Thank you so much for all your support,

Cold Love – Denali, North Pole, Greenland
A presentation by Polar Explorer Lonnie Dupre
Experience the adventure of polar travel and how climate change is affecting the globe firsthand with a dynamic multi-media presentation by explorer and mountaineer Lonnie Dupre. The talk will highlight the challenges of climbing Denali aka Mount McKinley, North America’s highest peak solo and in winter. The presentation will also touch on expeditions around Greenland and to the North Pole.
Join Lonnie as he shares life on the trail with special emphasis placed on setting and achieving goals, teamwork, overcoming obstacles and climate change. Breathtaking images, along with video, Arctic gear and a variety of other props complement the power point presentation.
Dupre, who lives in Grand Marais, Minnesota, has over 15,000 miles of Arctic expedition travel by dogsled, ski, and by kayak. While using non-motorized means of travel, he has lead several major expeditions including: the Russian Far East, first west to east winter crossing of Canada’s Northwest Passage, first and only circumnavigation of Greenland’s 6500-mile coastline and two North Pole expeditions.
His talks can be adapted to any level, age and time schedule. Generally, a 60 minute program consists of a 10 minute introduction along with “show and tell” items from the expedition. 40 minutes of breathtaking slides and video and a 10 minute question and answer period follow this.

“[Lonnie] is one of those rare individuals who is a doer. He has the organizational skills that are necessary to put an idea or dream into action. He knows the frustrations of refusal and rejection …. and one of his greatest assets is his ability to keep positive against great odds.”
