Join Ski Divas founder and professional mountain guide Jessica Baker and Brenton Reagan, IFMGA-AMGA certified guide, on a backcountry ski touring trip of a lifetime in the western fjords of Greenland. You will spend 10 days aboard the Knut sailboat, sailing and skiing your way from Maniitsoq, Greenland to incredible ski terrain in the region. You will find peaks jutting up over 6000 ft (2000 m) in elevation out of the sea, glaciers, Greenland’s ice cap, wildlife, and stunning scenery. Explore uncharted waters and new terrain daily, all from the ‘basecamp’ of the Knut sailboat.

About the boat: The Knut sailboat is a 50 ft (15.16 m) long aluminum “green” sailboat, modified for the rigors of arctic waters. The Knut is a “green” boat because it runs on purely renewable energy resources; sails to capture wind, wind turbines, solar power, batteries to store power, and an electric engine. The experience is serene and shows you what is possible in the the realm of renewable energy.

If you have wanted to try sailing, or you are a seasoned sailor, this trip allows for a hands on experience on the boat. If you wish to sit back and relax and enjoy the show, then you are welcome to it as well.
