Names that other countries have for this feature:
A marine channel, 1.5 mi long and 0.5 mi wide, between Snow Hill Island and Seymour Island in the James Ross Island group. First surveyed in 1902 by SwedAE, 1901-04, under Otto Nordenskjold. The UK-APC name arose from the excellent sledging conditions experienced during the FIDS resurveying of the area of 1952, which gave to the work a picnic-like atmosphere.
