Iceland Powder runs Deep

March 9th, 2011
Skidastadir Ski Resort, Akureyri Iceland

Day 1 in Iceland was pretty sweet. We went up to the local hill Skidastadir Ski Resort. We were stoked to find some deep powder from the mornings storm. Rory and Martini ripped around hitting mini features in the resort and getting deep powder turns.  The resort is about 1,800 vertical feet and has some really cool terrain all around it.
Byron Wells and Andreas Håtveit have been up working on a massive kicker we hope to hit and film in the next few days. The snow is flying and Iceland is getting blanketed in fresh.  JB and Einar from Arctic Heliskiing have been taking great care of us showing us around their country. We can't went to get in the bird with them and check out the big hills.

Here are some sweet photos to check out and enjoy. Check back for more updates soon.

Well, it’s a magical time of year again. Sticky spring snow is being plastered to the sides of the mountains high above Chamonix, France just in time for the Aiguille Du Midi tram to re-open after a lengthy COVID hiatus. Of course, that means the locals are absolutely frothing to get after it, and that’s just what Tof Henry and Seth Morrison did on one of the biggest lines of them all: the Aiguille Du Midi’s Mallory Route. More of a climbing route than a ski line, it comes into rare condition

There’s a few mountains out there whose shape just screams “SKI ME.” Among those is one that stands deep in Pakistan’s Karakoram range, Laila Peak, a hauntingly beautiful spear of rock whose Northwest Face is a perfect 45-degree ramp of snow that drops nearly 5000 feet to the glaciers below. Not to mention that the face hangs over an equally sized cliff that requires a potentially deadly traverse to navigate. The peak saw its first summit ski descent in 2018 by a team of French skiers.
