A Summerset Interview with Mark Inglis
Get to know the next guest in our Summerset Sessions interview series:
In November 1982 New Zealand was gripped by the story of two Search & Rescue Mountaineers trapped for nearly 14 days up Mt. Cook during a storm. The resulting stay in an ice-cave resulted in Mark Inglis and Philip Doole almost losing their lives.
Unfortunately the experience saw Mark lose both his legs to frostbite, but this did nothing to curb either his drive to succeed or his adventurous spirit. His list of achievements are many, among them being the first double amputee to conquer Mt. Everest.
Mark's story is one of adventure, determination and amazing resilience. Join us as Jude Dobson chats to Mark about that infamous stay at "Middle Peak Hotel", and his career as a winemaker, Paralympian, mountaineer, author and charitable trustee. Not one to be missed!
