Montreal to Kuujjuaq on cross-country skis

projet_karibu.jpgIn 1980, four adventure seekers crossed the 2,200 kilometers that seperate Montreal to Kuujjuaq on their cross-country skis, through 120 kilometers an hour winds, below 40 degree temperatures, and frostbite. The trip has now inspired a new generation of outdoor enthusiats: the Projet Karibu is setting off for the same trek on December 27th.

This morning we spoke with Marie-Andrée Fortin, who is with the Projet Karibu team as well as Claude Duguay, who was on the "Expedition Quebec 80" 33 years ago.
