Skađi is a Norse goddess of skiing, mountains, winter and bow-hunting. Skađi is the daughter of the giant Þjazi. The gods killed Þjazi. Skađi went to the gods seeking weregild (blood money) for her father, and as part of the settlement she got to pick one of the gods to be her husband. The catch was that she was only allowed to see their feet before making her choice. She picked the one with the prettiest feet, hoping to marry the beautiful Balder, but she got Njorđ. He loves the sea as she loves the mountains, and neither is happy in the marriage.

A pale ice blue, like the colour of a snow on a mountaintop.

Thrymheim the sixth is called

where Þjazi lived, the terrible giant,

but now Skadi, shining bride of the gods,

lives in her father's ancient courts
