Iceland is a uniquely beautiful island country that also is home to many unknown ski resorts, if you enjoy tree-less terrain and riding under the northern lights this may be right up your alley. This summer the small Tindastóll Ski area in Northern Iceland is greatly improving their skiable terrain with the addition of a new lift. Adding a secondary lift to the top of Tindastóll Mountain will create the opportunity to ski up to a 7km or 23,000 foot long run, from the summit all the way back to the road. Although Iceland has many larger ski resorts scattered across the country, Tindastóll Mountain looks to be a great place to ride next winter with their current construction efforts.
If you are not keen on skiing inbounds, Iceland has serious backcountry lines, enough to merit a trip to this notoriously expensive country. The Land of Fire and Ice has become synonymous with talented riders like Halldor Helgason, and it’s no wonder they were able to establish such prowess in this mystical place. So if you really want a unique story to tell, why not look to Iceland for your next exotic ski voyage, you may just have to keep the secret to yourself.
