High Camp Spitsbergen
Do you dream of skiing down steep mountains and sharp peaks? Cruise big faces or charge down steep couloirs? Perhaps this will be a “first descent”? All this and more, you will experience together with us in the mountains on Oscar II Land on the west coast of Spitsbergen.
We travel by boat from Longyearbyen and establish a base camp up on the glacier. From this camp we’ll climb and ski the surrounding peaks. Once all the nearby peaks are bagged, we just move the camp. On Spitsbergen, we still have perfect skiing conditions during May month. At this period the sun never sets, and thus we let the weather, instead of the clock decide when to go skiing. The temperature seldom drops below 23 F ( -5 C), even high up in the mountains. We spend the nights in warm sleeping bags in our expedition tents.
