The story of Shawn Emmett’s and Steve Tersmette’s 2017 MEC Adventure Grant expedition: travel nearly 280 km by roughly combining the Southern Purcell Traverse and the Bugaboos to Rogers Pass traverse, two of the grand ski traverses in Western Canada, in the summertime on foot. They got it done, but it was far from easy.
In 2017, Lorraine and Robin received the MEC Adventure Grant to pioneer and develop backcountry mountain bike trails with local communities in the Atacama Desert of South America. Lorraine and Robin will join us to tell the story and premiere their film about the project.
