BAF­FIN IS­LAND POW­DER HUNT

Men's Journal - - NOTEBOOK -

This sea­son, We­ber Arc­tic, the world’s north­ern­most he­li­copter guid­ing out­fit, in­tro­duced one of the planet’s most re­mote heli-ski­ing ex­pe­ri­ences: a seven-day ex­pe­di­tion to Canada’s Baf­fin Is­land—an area closer to the North Pole than to the U.S. bor­der. Par­tic­i­pants base out of the Inuit vil­lage of Clyde River and fly daily to the Arc­tic Cordillera range for pow­der runs. Co-owner Tes­sum We­ber says the ski­ing is ap­pro­pri­ate for in­ter­me­di­ate (blue run) skiers and above, with a va­ri­ety of ter­rain rang­ing from big, rolling glaciers to steep couloirs. “Gor­geous, long glacial des­cents are the norm,” he says. And yes, you will see po­lar bears. —Jayme Moye
