Fourteen-year-old Jade Hameister had a dream: to complete the Polar Hat Trick.

In 2015, she skied to the North Pole.

In 2016, she completed the Greenland Crossing.

In 2018, she arrived at the South Pole.

This is the story of an adventurer who never gave up - who set herself incredible challenges beyond her years and experience.

An adventurer who endured extremes of cold and blizzards; treacherous terrain where one wrong step could be fatal; struggled through sastrugi, ice rubble and emotional lows to achieve an extraordinary goal.

Along the way, she made a sandwich for online trolls, inspired young people, and made international headlines.

At sixteen, Jade Hameister became the youngest person in history to complete the Polar Hat Trick.

Jade is:

  • The youngest person to ski from the coast of Antarctica to South Pole unsupported and unassisted
  • The first Australian woman in history to ski coast to Pole unsupported and unassisted
  • The first woman to set a new route to the South Pole
  • The youngest to ski to both Poles
  • The youngest to complete the Polar Hat Trick.

Jade Hameister

Jade Hameister began her Polar Hat Trick quest in April 2016 at the age of fourteen. She subsequently became the youngest person to ski to the North Pole from anywhere outside the last degree and was awarded Australian Geographic Society's Young Adventurer of the Year.

In June 2017, she became the youngest woman to complete the 550 km crossing of Greenland, the second largest ice cap on the planet.

In January 2018, Jade became the youngest person to ski from coast of Antarctica to the South Pole unsupported and unassisted after an epic 37 day journey via a new route through the Kansas Glacier, from the Amundsen Coast of Antarctica.

She is believed to be the first woman in history to set a new route to the South Pole.

Only 20 women have previously completed the trek from the coast of Antarctica to the South Pole unsupported and unassisted.

Jade lives in Melbourne and is currently in Year 11.

Her ultimate goal is space.
