The duo will be skiing from Union Glacier to the South
Pole, setting off in November 2023. This journey will be
unassisted and unsupported, pulling 85+ kg pulks in
temperatures as low as -50c with possible wind speeds of
over 60 mph in approximately 45 days.
Conquering this challenge using mind and muscle power
alone will be a World’s First in terms of the pioneering
new route and a ski journey to the pole has never been
achieved by an Emergency Services team before.
The Antarctic Fire Angels believe that everyone should
be given every opportunity in life to achieve their
ambitions. Historically women and girls have been
stereotyped into certain roles and therefore unaware of
their own capabilities outside of these boundaries.
Through this expedition they intend on challenging that
concept and showing what women are capable of.
