Martina Halik and her mother Tania have just completed a cross-country ski trip from Squamish to Skagway, Alaska, traversing the entire length of the Coast Mountains.

It's a feat they say has only ever been accomplished once before.

"I'm relieved that it's over but I'm sad that it's over," Martina Halik told On The Coast with host, Gloria Macarenko. "I think it hasn't quite sunk in that we're not heading out onto the glaciers in a couple of days. "It's quite shocking to be back in Vancouver on a nice sunny day."
