Backcountry skiing is one of the fastest growing winter sports out there, increasing in popularity every season. Putting on skins, walking uphill and "earning your turns" allows riders the joy of skiing untouched snow while in the company of good friends and escaping the crowds. However backcountry skiing is not without risks and it is vital to acquire some basic knowledge in terrain assessment, rescue, and general winter mountaineering. Not only are Bergmenn Mountain Guides the only guiding company in Iceland offering the services of certified UIAGM-IFMGA Mountain Guides but also locals of the Troll Peninsula, one of the best areas of Iceland for skiing.
