Just saw this today at my favorite Greenland webcam site, the site for Nuuk

Unfortunately, I have no idea what they are saying, but it looks like a poma.

Obviously, I'm no superstar on the old computer. That first one is Brianhead - I hit the wrong button. The poma picture is clearer at www.nuuk.gl. Sorry

The language is Danish. I have an instructional tape if you are interested. After I visited Iceland I read an interesting book by an author out of Cambridge, Ma. He's travelled there a few times in the summer. There's an abandonned lift on the outskirts of Reykevik which I visited. It looks like that one. If you visit Greenland, you have to make connections in Iceland. This guy's adventures there (Iceland and Greenland) didn't make Greenland all that attractive to me. I believe the glacier is calving right now, so Labrador would be the destination of choice in late April. The artic places are much better done with x-c skiis (aided by kites). Very few people know anything about the artic first hand. Anyway if you are interested in skiing Iceland this summer, here's a link kerlingarfjoll

Once again, I'm aware this is an old topic, but I had to jump in because I flew over the southern tip of Greenland on my way home from Finland this past March. Even from 35,000 feet or so, those mountains look SCARY! And they rise right up out of the fjords. I can see how snow kites would be useful in the interior, but I for one do not care to fetch up in one of those crevasses. A very rugged and dangerous, but also spectacular place.
