Unmatched in beauty Greenland offers some other most thrilling skiing you will find anywhere on the planet. Greenland Heli Skiing is located 60 kilometers north of Maniitsoc on the Eternity Fiord in the village of Kangaamiut where you will live close to the local population as they go about their daily lives.
When you ski the Wild West coast of Greenland the one phrase that sums it up is “ultimate skiing” suited for riders who love big speed turns in spring snow with tons of glacial runs dropping as much as 2000 meters to the fiords below.
While you may encounter all snow conditions most of the skiing is done on spring snow on southern aspects, and powder snow on the northern aspects. Also with the maritime snowpack, and late season the risk of avalanches is lessened making for some awesome vertical drops.
