Powder Ride Contest winner Domi T.: A once in a lifetime trip to Iceland.

The journey to Iceland was a minor adventure for the BMW Powder Ride overall winner Domi T. and his companion. The route to the Viking heli-skiing Lodge was surrounded by a landscape of unique and fascinating beauty.

The real highlight for the Powder Ride winner was heli-skiing / heli-boarding. Fresh snowfall from the day before provided perfect powder conditions. Duly infected of the anticipation of heli-boarding, the helicopter pilot willingly turned the flight to the backcountry into a roller coaster experience. The winner and his companion had a high level of riding skills, which allowed the Viking Guide to select a more demanding terrain. They even had the chance to name a Freeride Line, which has never been ridden before. The kind of experience that you would never forget.

A further highlight was the BMW X1 scenic drive through the remarkable Icelandic scenery. The BMW X1 perfectly fits for Iceland's roads, perfect for allowing the driver to enjoy the breath taking beauty of the natural splendours on display. Contest winner Domi was also able to enjoy his passion for photography including ice snorkelling in crystal clear waters – resulting in some splendid images. At the end, Domi´s friend Gabriel, has exactly hit the point: “What an amazing trip!
