Travelling as a self-sufficient team, we will be skiing hut to hut across the bewitching and awe-inspiring Arctic tundra. This stark, unforgiving, yet beautiful landscape gives us the opportunity to enhance our backcountry winter skills, where each person plays a vital role in the team’s success.
Along the way, we will ski past hanging glaciers and granite rock walls, across massive frozen lakes and deep snowdrifts.
Your sense of space, distance and time will get distorted as the incredible clarity of the light leads to a false sense of perspective. Learn to embrace the meditative rhythm of breaking new trails on fresh snow, as the silence seeps into your consciousness.
