About the film: In May of 2019 professional skiers Jessica Baker, Rachael Burks, photographer Joey Schusler, and sailboat captain Benjamin Ruffieux embarked on a journey to the West Coast of Greenland to explore uncharted waters and un-skied lines from a 50-ft sailboat. What they didn’t realize was 2019 was to become the second hottest year on record and the very first-time in history that temperatures hovered consecutively above freezing at the top of the Greenland ice sheet. And while the corn cycle provided weeks of amazing skiing, the warmth was alarming. Over a three-week period, the team witnessed massive melting events and unprecedented warm temperatures atop the world’s second largest ice cap. The ramifications of which were being closely monitored by scientists.

Fast forward three years…the world has been shut down from the pandemic, borders are just beginning to open, and the past two years have once again seen some of the hottest temperatures on record, with 2022 slated to be the hottest ever. Scientists studying climate change have seen exponential rates of melting of the Greenland ice sheet.

In May of 2022 Jessica and Rachael returned to Greenland’s West Coast, this time with a film production team; to observe and document the changes that have occurred over the past three years and to attempt some of the ski lines that were left untouched from the previous trip in 2019. But this trip they have returned with one key modification: the sailboat has now been transformed into a renewable energy boat, running fully off of sun and wind power. Along with this modification comes new challenges.
