Iceland sailboat skiing

 Poster: A snowHead
Poster: A snowHead
Spent a week on the Aurora based out of Isafjordur.

Anchor up. Zodiac to shore. Skins on. Skin up. Ski down to next fjord. Back onto yacht.

Fantastic time.

Proper back country, and a skinny dip in 4 degrees water to end.

The very short night meant we were skiing until late. Perfect.

@ChrisKernow, looks like an amazing experience. How much vert each day? I presume the level of fitness and standard of skier was fairly high.

Curious why you chose Iceland over the Norwegian fjords (unless you’ve done that before?).

The mountains plateau at about 600m but we did 2 or 3 skin ups each day.

The issue with Norway is that in April the snow line means you usually have to boot pack from the waters edge. With the western fjords in Iceland there is usually a strip of snow to the waters edge.

Also Iceland is less "done" than Norway.

Regarding fitness, I was the 2nd oldest at 50, but there was a 67 yr old Canadian too. I am not that fit and about 100kgs and like a cigarette on the way up, but I had done a whole season in France before going.
