Event description

Description

As part of the Trowers Includes series of talks, you are invited to attend a talk on Expedition Ice Maiden delivered by one of the Ice Maidens, LSgt Sophie Montagne.


This will be a unique evening and a great opportunity for us to hear first-hand what it takes to successfully ski coast-to-coast across Antarctica! We believe it will be invaluable for our mentees and Ambassadors to hear about the Ice Maidens' incredible adventure.

"No team of women, from any nation, has completed this formidable challenge using muscle power alone. It is the ultimate opportunity to show that women have the mental strength and physical endurance to operate in the most hostile environment on earth.

The Ice Maiden team will cover 1,700km using muscle-power alone, pulling sledges and battling temperatures of -50°C and wind speeds of over 60mph during their three-month journey.

Unsupported, and with only two resupply points along the route, they will carry all the supplies and equipment needed to survive for up to 600km at a time.

The Ice Maiden team are all serving in the British Army or Army Reserve and are following in the footsteps of Felicity Aston’s record-breaking solo Antarctic crossing in 2012."
