For the next couple of weeks, Spyder team members Jess McMillan, Sierra Quitiquit, and Julia Mancuso (joining the group after U.S. Nationals) will be in Iceland shooting a segment with Warren Miller Entertainment.
They’ll be sending us images, words, and other goodies from their adventure, so stay tuned.
Here’s the first update from Sierra:
The team arrived in Iceland early Monday morning and had the chance to spend the day exploring Reykjavik. Later in the evening we hopped on a small 45 minute flight to the North of Iceland arriving in Akureyri. Our guide JB from Arctic Iceland heli skiing picked us up and drove us 45 minutes north to the end of the valley which translates in English to Ski Valley. Our home for the next two weeks is an old turn of the century sheep house that has been converted in to a modern yet quaint heli ski operation. Snow conditions are as good as they’ve been in 15 years and it’s currently snowing! We are all smiles and looking forward to a trip of a lifetime.
And here’s what Jess has to say:
