Winter of 2019 was again an incredible season with trips ranging from mid-winter Selkirk Powder to powerful alpine ski mountaineering at Burnie Glacier. I finished the season in Svalbard again, exploring the fjords of Spitzbergen from the Rembrandt van Rijn and the s/v Noorderlicht.

Our first Ski & Sail this season was on the s/v Rembrandt van Rijn. It's a fine boat, about 50 m long with space for 33 passengers and 10 crew. We shared the charter with another group of snowshoers. This made for slightly more complicated logistics, but with two zodiacs and the competent direction of the expedition leader Phil Wickens and the cooperation of my co-guide Larry Stanier everything went very smoothly.
