Inspired by Inspiring Girls Expeditions (they inspire women too!), Girls on Ice Canada was founded by Eleanor Bash, a PhD Candidate in glaciology at the University of Calgary, Dr. Alison Criscitiello, an Adjunct Assistant Professor at University of Calgary and Technical Director of the Canadian Ice Core Archive, Jocelyn Hirose, a resource conservation scientist with Parks Canada and former glaciology graduate, and ACMG guide Cecelia Mortenson. With the support of Dr. Erin Pettit, the founder of Girls on Ice, and her team they hope to emulate the other expeditions while offering a Canadian alpine setting and twist.
