sadcars INSTAGRAM TAKEOVER with professional snowboarder @SeanBusby and yogi/skier @montanamollie | Woke up to a beautiful sunrise today over the Westfjords. We packed up our tent, made breakfast with our dehydrated food that we have in tow, and went on our way - in search for more gorgeous mountains and fjords to ski and snowboard down to! Our routine is simple here and sometimes we are greeted with amazing northern light displays from our tent. Some mornings we also come across new Arctic fox tracks in the snow so we know they are passing through while we sleep.

sadcars INSTAGRAM TAKEOVER with professional snowboarder @SeanBusby and yogi/skier @montanamollie | We have been driving our SADcar all over the Westfjords to find the next cool zone to pitch our tent and then move into the mountains around the fjords by our skis and splitboard (a snowboard that splits in half to allow @SeanBusby to ski up mountains and then snowboard down). Iceland has tons of backcountry touring zones and we have only been able to sample a tiny amount of them. Every new fjord brings many more areas to ski and ride. As we climb each mountain we have been rewarded with either shin-deep powder turns or sunshine. Two of the most sought after features for folks like us! Here - @montanamollie starts her climb towards the top of a fjord on her skis in search of powder and the chance for the sun to peak through as a storm leaves the area. We must also be constantly aware and find safe areas to climb up to the tops of these mountains to help minimize and prevent the chance of avalanches. #SADCars #westfjords #Iceland #skiuphill #earnyourturns 2d

sadcars INSTAGRAM TAKEOVER with professional snowboarder @SeanBusby and yogi/skier @montanamollie | Looking across Önundarfjörður towards the village of Flateyri...population 237, located in Iceland's Westfjords. Mollie and I are getting into our rhythm of backcountry skiing and snowboarding during the day and chasing Norther Lights by night. Iceland can easily keep us up for 24 hours a day in the winter - there is just so much to do! #SADCars #westfjords #Iceland 3d

sadcars INSTAGRAM TAKEOVER with professional snowboarder @SeanBusby and yogi/skier @montanamollie | One of my favorite parts of road tripping with @seanbusby is this game of stop and go that we play. When we have time to meander toward our destination, we frequently pull off the road to take photos or experience something new like a random hot spring, or to photograph a mountain peak in the setting sun. Yesterday in Iceland was exactly that - a simple drive to Ísafjörður on our time and it had the perfect mix of efficiency and spontaneity. #SADcars #westfjords #Iceland 4d

seanbusby Follow @sadcars to catch more action of @montanamollie and I as we do an Instagram takeover during our Iceland expedition--- Our first night we were caught in an unexpected storm and were faced with severe wind speeds, dangerous wind chills, and blowing snow that instantly dropped visibility to zero and pushed 3 foot drifts across roads. The roads around us suddenly became impassible and we were stranded for the night. Unable to set our tent up and jet lagged from arriving earlier that day - we popped the seats down in our vehicle and rolled out the sleeping bags. Winds howled through the entire night waking us what seemed like every 5 minutes. Upon morning the storm was gone and we were back on the road heading north to Isafjordur stopping only to make more coffee. #sadcars #westfjords #iceland 5d

sadcars INSTAGRAM TAKEOVER with professional snowboarder @SeanBusby and yogi/skier @MontanaMollie | Greetings from Iceland! We're the Busbys, hailing from Northwest Montana, USA. This is our second visit to Iceland, but first visit using SADCars to get around... although we loved driving the entire country last time (and we got engaged at Goðafoss in March, 2011!), we couldn't resist spending our second visit backcountry skiing, winter camping, and touring the Westfjords area. Join us for the next week as we bring you along for the ride! #SADcars #westfjords #Iceland 5d
