With our skiing options rather limited in the northeast, we headed north on June 20th a few years back to research a story about Iceland’s emerging backcountry skiing industry and explore a range of wild mountains towering over the Greenland Sea. Close to midnight on June 21, we shouldered our packs and set off into the mountains for the first of four ski-camps we would enjoy over the next month. A fresh 4-8″ of snow blanketed the world around us. A deep mountain snow pack lingered. As we climbed, the roar of the sea filled the air. We were definitely not in Kansas, anymore.
Happy summer solstice!
