“Arctic Spring- A Tale of two Ski Traverses

In this visually stunning presentation Frank Wolf shares the experience of his recent Arctic ski traverses across Baffin Island and Bylot Island.  Through images and stories, we’re given an intimate glimpse into this rarely travelled world of rock and ice. Interweaving adventure, Inuit culture, and humour, this show will reveal some of the amazing places your skis can take you.
