    In an island chain north of Norway, lies the magical Svalbard. Home to polar bears, seals, walruses, blue whales, reindeers, artic birds and arctic foxes, this corner of the Artic Circle offers great skiing in May and June, when the sun never sets. Come with me to explore the spectacular and endless white landscape of Svalbard.

    This one-week trip will allow you to experience sailing and skiing combined. We’ll be spending our nights in the S/Y SkyDancer of Longyearbyen sailboat, where we’ll enjoy delicious food (including waffles with brown cheese, sour cream and jelly). During the days, we’ll be skiing different slopes carefully chosen for the best snow conditions, maximum fun and ultimate safety.

    This trip also offers the opportunity to discover unique wildlife. If we’re lucky, we’ll get to see the Blue Whale on the water. Svalbard is also home to polar bears, but I take all the necessary safety precautions! Your safety is my priority.

    This is a great trip for those that love water, snow and mountains. Book your trip now! I would love to be your guide and show you all the amazing things this remote corner of the world has to offer.

    About the Guide

     
     

    A Utah native, Todd grew up with a strong passion for skiing and playing in the mountains. Looking to incorporate this passion into a profession Todd attended the University of Utah and earned a bachelors degree from the Parks and Recreation department. He worked in the outdoors as a wilderness instructor teaching survival skills in the Utah desert for many years. In 2000 he began mountain guiding, and has been sharing his passion of the mountains with others ever since.

    Todd’s guiding has taken him to many corners of the globe including; Alaska, Asia, Antarctica, Europe, South America and the Western U.S. He is a fully certified IFMGA/UIAGM mountain guide. Other training and certifications include Avalanche level III and Wilderness First Responder.

    Climbing with Todd one immediately feels a sense of safety and trust. Todd is a strong and highly competent leader with years of experience leading large expeditions and one on one guiding. He is a skillful teacher and enjoys helping folks accomplish their climbing aspirations.

    Some of his notable ascents include; Denali’s Cassin Ridge, a first ascent of the 5000’ west face of Mt. Vinson in Antarctica and the Walker spur on the Grand Jorasses in the Alps.

    When he is not traveling Todd enjoys spending time at home in Salt Lake City, Utah climbing and skiing the Wasatch with his wife, climbing partner and fellow guide.

    What People are Saying about Todd Passey

     

    Todd is a very experienced guide who knows the area like the palm of his hand. He tailored a plan that adapted perfectly to the conditions and our group, and he got us to some great powder even after 1 week since the last snowfall! We had a great time and I will for sure call Todd again next year when I return to Utah!
