Less cold and sunny
Good morning! 8AM: -21 Celsius, light air, clear sky. Some of the more open trails "snowblown" partly, but trails to the south and central are in good condition. Fremre Uksan - Dorhogda loop was prepared this morning. We are still on green and polar wax, but honestly we could have gone out on no wax, since the snow was like skiing through ice splinters. (not much speed at all, but safe!) Conditions in the higher areas are better (off piste), harder surface, but watch out for windslabs, I saw some avalanche debris close to Svartfjell, fortunately far from any trails.
