Greenland may be the ultimate heli skiing adventure–its treeless landscapes, rugged raw beauty and ends-of-the-earth feel are unlike anywhere else. Vast glaciated peaks and unnamed runs descend into iceberg-filled fjords. Flying out over ice floes, you’ll often spot native Greenlandic people out hunting with their dog sleds or polar bears prowling for seals. That combination of stunning scenery, Greenlandic culture and world-class wilderness skiing has made heli skiing in Greenland a true bucket list experience. . . .
I have recently viewed various photos of friends ski trips all over the world. From Traverses in Europe to the backcountry of whistler, from off piste skiing in Japan to the slack country of the States. What caught my attention about all these trips were the number of “others” in the backgrounds of all of these photos. Crowds, sometimes even hordes of people skiing in the same places. I found it hard not to cringe . . .
