A company set up by a former ski instructor that specialises in building “world first” experiences that push the boundaries of travel is offering what it believes is the world’s most northerly ski camp this winter.
Cookson Adventures has set up the camp from a base on Baffin Island in northern Canada, 70° north within the Arctic Circle. The company’s clients can explore the Arctic Cordillera mountain range via snow-cat or helicopter, skiing some slopes that have never been skied before and getting the opportunity to then name the lines skied themselves.
Cookson’s heli-ski base is located among the remote fjords near the small Inuit community of Clyde River, further north than the world’s most northerly ski resort (Riksgränsen in Sweden), among undiscovered skiable wildernesses in the Arctic Cordillera mountain range.
“The Baffin Island adventure is ideal for skiers looking for a ‘world first’ experience: uncharted slopes, unnamed ski lines, immersion into local culture and a real chance to test one’s physical limits,” said Adam Sebba, CEO of Cookson Adventures. cooksonadventures.com
