Just a heads up. Anyone come across a series of YouTube videos titled "Alluring Arctic"? Suggested to me by a sailor friend and highly recommended. This guy sails solo (mostly) around Norway in his small yacht, then moors in fiords, takes a dinghy to shore, hikes up and skis some of the most extraordinary backcountry lines. Spectacular scenery, wildlife. In episode 5, he claims to have evidence that seals travel uphill from the water so that they can slide (ski?) down. Worth a look. What a life!
