Looking for inspiration for your next great ski adventure? Consider chartering The Firebird aka the floating ski chalet of the north where passengers cruise the frigid waters of Scandinavia and take Zodiacs to shore to shred some of the best backcountry Europe has to offer. Check out this July sail/ski chronicle from Yachting World where photographer Mike Jones joins the crew to ski and cruise Svalbard, Norway.

YOUR FLOATING CHALET

The spacious saloon of the RS version of Oyster’s celebrated 885 model offers a 360° panorama of the local scenery, comfortably seating 8 around the smartly engineered foldable table. Bespoke designer tableware and Redington crystal, branded Heirlooms bed and table linens illustrate the attention to detail that the owners and crew have put in creating the ambiance and convenience of the luxury alpine chalet brought right to the footsteps of Europe’s best off-piste skiing. We even offer guest slippers and signature orange cashmere blankets to enjoy your morning mug of coffee on deck whilst admiring the dramatic colors as the sun emerges from behind the snow covered Arctic peaks.
