Snowpark & Club 

Here in Grise Fjord, at 76 degrees 24' N, you are at the top of the world, where the climate and seasons have a unique rhythm. At these latitudes, we have two seasons: the "light" season from May to August, when the sun never sets, and the "dark" season from October to mid-February, when the sun never rises.

Wintertime is cold. Temperatures in January can dip to -30 C (-22 F) and can go as low as -40 C (-40 F). The ground remains snow-covered from late September to early June. Moonlight on the snow and a lingering twilight help to guide you. For 10 months of the year, the sea around Grise Fjord is frozen and breaks up usually aren't complete until mid-August. Until then, we use the sea ice as a highway for travel by snowmobile or dog sled. Here, paraskiing can be done on the sea ice, in front of the community, in the fjord or on the wide open areas toward Devons Island.
