Fossil Bluff is an aircraft refueling site around 200 miles south of Rothera. It's manned by two members of staff from Rothera during the summer. I was really lucky and spent three weeks there in November 2003. You start doing hourly weather observations at 7am until the planes finish flying for the night and so it's quite hard work, but it's such an amazing chilled place that no-one minds. The ski-way is on the ice at the edge of the King George VI sound, but there are fantastically scenic mountains all around.
