Chris Davenport to appear live on Facebook from Antarctica

Staff report

Red Bull athlete Chris Davenport, accomplished big-mountain skier, instructor and explorer, will host a live Facebook broadcast this week via the Facebook Mentions app from the bottom of the Earth as he explores the Antarctic continent during his annual Ice Axe Expeditions trip.

Today through Monday at 9:30 a.m., Davenport will live broadcast through Facebook, giving viewers different insights every day about how he explores the frozen continent. He will give valuable insights on how expeditions such as this one are accomplished, what an explorer could see and do this far away from general civilization and give a special insight on how to explore the world, no matter the environment.

Facebook launched Live for Facebook Mentions in August as a way for public figures to share live video with their fans on Facebook from the Mentions app. To date, public figures have gone live on Facebook from 6 of 7 continents.

Check out for updates and feature stories upon Davenport’s return from the bottom of the Earth.
