Shifting Ice and Changing Tides: A Ski and Sail Saga

In March of 2014, an all-female crew, including Martha and Pip Hunt, McKenna Peterson, Nat Segal, Meghan Kelly and photographer Kt Miller set out to sea. Their goal: to sail from Ísafjörður, Iceland to Nuuk, Greenland (located on the west coast), all while skiing first descents throughout Greenland. And the mission, which was entirely wind- and human-powered, aimed to go deeper than documenting untouched lines; the crew also hoped to capture the recession of glaciers and additional effects of climate change and to inspire women to participate in adventure.

Now, two years later and with an Earth Day release, Kt Miller’s film Shifting Ice and Changing Tides documents the trip, advocating for climate change awareness and reminding us of skiing and riding’s ecological footprint.
