Where Hot Springs Meet Snow Capped Mountains

Iceland is known for other things besides its spectacular views of the country. The mountains catch the freshest powder, making it easily one of the coolest places to shred. Akureyri is a small city just south of the Arctic Circle where hot springs meet snow capped mountains, and this was where they held Iceland’s annual Winter Games festival. The event was held by a snowboard film contest, where two teams of two snowboarders would free ride down these mountains. Team USA included Scotty Lago and Greg Bretz.
