There are few places on the planet where you ski directly down to the ocean. Norway’s Lofoten Islands is one such spot, and this couloir, though not the steepest nor blessed with the best snow, provided one of the most direct routes that photograph­er Ming Poon had ever seen. Poon nabbed this photograph of Christina “Lusti” Lustenberg­er while on location filming with TGR last winter, and the crew rewarded themselves with some beach time at the bottom. “It’s rare to find such a nice couloir that you can literally ski to the ocean,” says Poon. “The Lofoten islands are a ski and snowboard paradise. I very much look forward to returning.”
