A climate scientist and polar explorer, Felicity Aston is the first woman to ski across Antartica alone. Felicity's record-breaking excursion across the Antartica in 2012 set the stage for encouraging 10 women to ski across the Middle East and Europe. In 2018, the group traversed frozen ocean sea ice to take on a demanding environment. Even though several team members were new to cold weather expeditions, the unified experience transformed the women into an efficient team of explorers, who adapted to the climate and other challenges on the journey.
