Baffin Island... again

 Poster: A snowHead
Poster: A snowHead
I should be busy sorting out the coming winter, but was sidetracked looking at pictures from Baffin Island in 2016 and realised I hadn't actually posted many here...

Our second line of the trip - a 'mere' 700m vertical.

Heading down Gibbs Fjord from basecamp:





The beauty of Baffin is you never quite know what you will find when you head out exploring... we had set off to recce lines on the other side of the fjord and spotted this beauty that just appeared out of a seemingly blank rock face... it would have been rude not to ski it!:



On the 'stairmaster':





Full wingspan, surfer dude and cheesy rave finger...:



The picture above shows why it doesn't really matter whether or not you top out on lines in Baffin (many don't exit easily onto the plateau) - there isn't that much to see, and getting to a summit would involve hours slogging up and down scree covered with faceted snow...

Evan takes flight into the gloomy slot below:

Thanks as always to Whitedot Skis and Nordic Life.
