Frigid January Ski

A frigid day in January, two determined skiers take to the slopes behind Pangnirtung. Here are some pics of us skiing what we dubbed Wine Peak (or alternately, Whine Peak), because although it really sucked at the time (it was frigging cold! -28C) we realized that the memory would get much better with age.

Cold but happy.

It was so cold that the snow consistency was affected and it felt like sand under our skis. A skin fell off Markus' ski and wouldn't reattach because it was too cold for the glue to work, so he walked the last pitch to the summit.

Pulling skins off for the descent.

Always a new adventure to be had.

A hike up Nasauja in early January. This spot is very visible from town at the end of the fjord and it was fun to go up it. Beautiful views out to Cumberland Sound.

The view looking back towards town. Pangnirtung in the background, right.

Weekend fun? Skijoring!

Weekend fun on out on the fjord. No experience necessary.

Sola and the boys, Gibson and Gobi. It's fun to ski with two at once!

Break time with our whole gang.
