Hilary has an extensive background in the New Zealand adventure industry, primarily in glacier and ski guiding. She spent many years living on the remote West Coast of New Zealand’s South Island – exploring the rugged wilderness on her doorstep. From 2000 – 2004 Hilary spent her summer seasons working as a field instructor and guide at Scott Base – New Zealand’s Antarctic base.
More recently she has been working in a training and development company – facilitating a variety of programmes including: adventure leadership, team building and outdoor pre-hospital emergency care courses.
Hilary stays active – mountain biking and paddling waka ama (outrigger) canoe are some of her favourite activities when not working in the field.
This Antarctic season Hilary joins us as a part of our experienced mountaineering Expedition Team.
