There & Back
Skiing Greenland's Untamed Backcountry

Photo: Camelia Liparoti, 36, ski touring near Greenland's Sermilik Fjord
Last spring Camelia Liparoti, the Chamonix-based photographer and translator gathered a few pals—including David Allemoz (pictured below)—to hit Greenland's sublime backcountry for heli-skiing, dogsledding, and winter camping on the area's surprisingly conquerable peaks, all under 3,400 feet (1,036 meters).

Photo: Greenland
"Greenland is the largest island on the planet, and hard to describe without repeating 'spectacular,' 'magnificent,' and 'beautiful' ad nauseam. We forgot the rest of the world existed while cutting fresh tracks, steep and deep, down to a sea studded with huge icebergs. I shot this photo at 9:45 p.m. Under the midnight sun, the snow looked golden."
—Camelia Liparoti
