Outdoor Research, Going GREENland; Eco-Conscious Adventure
Outdoor Research ambassadors and professional skiers Jessica Baker and Rachael Burks teamed up with photographer Joey Schusler on a 3-week ski and sail expedition in southern Greenland. Boarding the now 100% eco-powered Knut sailboat, the three aimed to sail and ski their way through the fjords and tallest mountains along the west coast of Greenland, to see and ski Greenland's ice sheet, to travel with a minimal footprint, and to make direct observations of the changing climate. Jessica, Rachael, and Joey had 3 weeks of perfect ski touring weather. They marveled in the fjords, couloirs, icefalls, ascents and descents. They hiked 50,000+ vertical feet in 13 days, drank the most incredible fresh water imaginable, and skied some truly impressive lines. This presentation is about their voyage, the skiing, the landscape, the culture, the teamwork and comradery, and what they discovered along the way. As athletes and inhabitants of this earth Jessica and Rachael share their direct observations of the landscape and climate and what that looks like on a record-breaking summer heatwave in Greenland, the second largest ice sheet on the planet.
