the bear ski, finland

100km, 10 days

Part of my studies during my time at the International Wilderness Guide school in Finland, this two week solo ski in winter was not only a practical exam, but a huge test of all the skills we had learnt. A few of the students weren't even allowed to go on the trip such was the potential risk. Complete solitude, sunny days, -20 nights, northern lights, cutting my leg open with an was bliss.
