Baffin Island – Skiing The Midnight Sun

Exploratory steep skiing in the remote Arctic fiords on Baffin Island.

This mythical area is home to some of the largest cliffs on the planet towering 1500 m straight out of the frozen sea and between them are the most amazing couloirs. Travelling using kites and skins Ross Hewitt, Marcus Waring, Michelle Blaydon and TOm Grant spent 30 days unsupported on the ice covering 240 km and skiing 26 couloirs along the way. Half of these were first known descents.
