Snowboarding in Greenland

Snowboarding in Greenland
Northern lights over Tinid, this is the end of the world

Beginning of April, after I had great days of riding powder at home in Leogang, I took part at an adventurous snowboarding trip to Greenland. 

Humbi from MMP films asked Gian Simmen, Eric Themel and me to come along with him to make a documentary about snowboarding and travelling around in East Greenland. 

The travelling was amazing. We got to see quite impressive landscapes. Powder snow was hard to find though. At least without the helicopter. That one day when we flew with the heli to the big mountains we rode 2 step and deep faces. 
I think we all got some adrenalin coming down these runs. 

The rest of the snowboarding there was a lot of mini shred. Maybe too much... 
The most interesting part of Greenland was to get to know the people and their culture. The landscapes were amazing and all of it a great experience in the far north.
