Svalbard Ski & Sail on the s/v Rembrandt van Rijn - May 15-22, 2020
Two spots left.
The most exotic guided ski touring trip possible: backcountry ski touring and sailing along the west coast of Spitsbergen in the Greenland sea, a thousand kilometers north of Norway, in the Svalbard archipelago of over 60 (mostly unpopulated) islands. 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 ...

Sorcerer Lodge, April 20-27, 2019
Fully booked. Contact 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 ...
