Andrew Travels to Northwest Arctic

Andrew spent last week teaching skiing to kids in Noorvik and Selawik, in the northwestern corner of Alaska.  He was part of a small group of ski coaches and athletes from Alaska and the Lower 48 who traveled to the Northwest Arctic region. His trip started with a commercial jet flight to Kotzebue.  From there, he got on a local flight to nearby Noorvik:

The coaches then geared up and skied from Noorvik to Selawik:

Andrew is back in Anchorage now, but it looks like he had an experience in the northwest arctic that he won't soon forget!
