Gearing up for Greenland!

It’s almost time for Powderbird’s annual Greenland heli-skiing trips. Our season here in Utah is beginning to wrap up. Which is always slightly ironic, considering we are coming off a decent storm, have a 159″ base, and it looks like there’s more snow in the forecast over the weekend. Our crew is departing Utah on April 9th, traveling to Copenhagen, and catching a direct flight to Greenland. From there they will board the ship Kisaq, which will be their home for the week-long adventure. The advantages of basing off the ship are the mobility, flexibility in flight plans, and ability to travel deep into previously unexplored fjords. This will provide the opportunity for first descents and a truly isolated heli-skiing experience.

Here are some Greenland photos to help illustrate just how incredible and unique this trip really is.
