Svalbard Ski and Sail 2019
We are offering two ski and sail trips during the prime season for Arctic ski touring

It is a wild and remote place, and at a latitude of greater than 78º, high in the Arctic, it is level with Canada's Ellesmere Island, or the northernmost end of Greenland. Yet it easy to access - with three-times daily flights from Oslo - and offers the supreme comfort of a luxury sailing yacht ...

Longyearbyen Webcam Photo

Our Ski and Sail trips to Svalbard this spring will enjoy around the clock sunlight in the Land of the Midnight Sun. Right now is a different story. Here’s a photo from noontime today, looking over the port town of Longyearbyen, where we’ll begin our Ski and Sail trips in May. You can just see a glimmer of light above the horizon as the sun, far to the south, struggles to light the sky at mid-day. Amazing!

Sorcerer Lodge, April 25-May 2, 2021
Now booking for 2021Contact us to get on our waiting list.Sorcerer Lodge sits high on a rocky perch at treeline above a small lake, at 6660 feet, (2030 meters) between two heavily glaciated valleys in the Selkirk Mountains. It is a magical, rugged area that will take your breath away. The backcountry skiing, mountaineering and snowboarding are challenging. We don’t recommend it as a ski touring destination for beginners. Our guests have access to several glaciated areas including the massive north facing Nordic Glacier that gathers the snow early and holds it till late spring (and throughout most of the summer too). Across Ventego Creek, Cheap Scotch basin provides south and southeast facing terrain with open bowls and some steep tree lines. Extensive tree skiing near the lodge ensures that you’ll get out even on the worst weather days. Mt Iconoclast at 10,666 feet (3251 meters) dominates this area and is a ski mountaineering prize. There is also a selection of accessible peaks within shorter day tours of the lodge ...
