Jade Hameister, a 14 year old Victorian adventurer, recently became the youngest person to ski more than a last degree to the North Pole. Tune into Triple J Radio this afternoon from 3pm AEST to hear all about this amazing endeavour.
Jade will be attempting the Polar hat trick over the next few years, and as of last week she is well on her way. Jade and her father Paul are accompanied by Petter Nyquist cameraman, and polar explorer and Mont Ambassador Eric Philips.
With the North Pole now complete the next step is the crossing of Greenland, and finally to the South Pole.
Mont is proud to protect Jade and her crew with Hydronaute Pro shellwear and Icicle down jackets on this amazing endeavour.
To learn more about Jade and her amazing adventures follow her on Instagram @jadehameister.

As summer approaches, I keep looking through my list of past walks to see which ones I want to do again.
In September 1986 I walked from Lake St Clair, up past Little Hugel to Mt Hugel. I then continued down the western slopes to Lake Hermione, followed a valley up to Lake Petrarch and walked back down to Lake St Clair. A good partly offtrack bushwalk. This time I only had two days, so the plan was to camp next to a tarn up on the Mt Hugel plateau.

One of the biggest jobs at Mont is customer service, with the inbox sometimes a little overwhelming! But the emails are overwhelmingly positive; questions about our gear, emails about how well a customers gear worked, and fun stories and photos from the wild.
It isn’t all smiles, though, negative emails do occasionally pop up. But not to let that get us down, often these emails highlight a failure of communication on our part or provide information for us to reflect upon and improve.
