The Faces of Dav - The Explorer Part 2

by Updated December 30, 2014

After skiing their first couloirs of Svalbard, Davenport and the crew have been boat bound with poor weather conditions and variable stability. The Arctica II travels deep into the fjords, where they witness calving glaciers, historical fishing huts and massive sea lions. As pressure builds to ski some lines, the crew finally makes it to new terrain, however their plans are compromised when half the team is pinned in a couloir during a class 2 avalanche.

Before resorts, lift tickets and overpriced pizza, there was adventure in skiing. Before the mountains were harnessed with lifts, bound with ropes and scarred with designated runs, they were wild. Actions with consequences were chosen and the individual was held responsible. No liability forms or waivers. The lifts came and made the mountains small, tame and in time, boring. We were sold that THIS is skiing.  more »
