Expedition Hope - North Pole to Canada
On April 2nd, 2014, Bernice 'Bernie-from-Fernie' Notenboom and her team set off on a 600 mile expedition to ski from the North Pole to Canada. Their weapons of choice? G3's ultralight Carbon ZenOxide 88 skis with G3 Alpinist skins permanently fixed to the bases. If that isn't a good way to field test gear, then what is?
Their trip, labelled 'Expedition Hope', aims to bring awareness and support to the Plant-for-the-Planet program, and ultimately to help mitigate the effects of global warming.
