Great sunny day again, wish we had more snow. I checked the trail conditions in several areas. It is possible to ski from Venabu Fjellhotell to Buhaugen, Frisketjonn, Granhaugen, Lundtjonn, Trabelia and even Langbakken area has a ski doo trail. Unfortunately Holtesetervegen area is full of clear roads with lots of gravel on. Altough it seems like a great idea to ski from Lundtjonn to Holtesetervegen it is actually a ski and a walk since those roads have messed up the final 1 km. Langbakken should be done uphill not downhill since there is a lot of vegetation in the trail.
Kyrkjegardsfjellet Rundt has seen skiers as well. Lundes has most of its trails running in every direction, only Friska River trail is not really up for the challenge. Svartfjellseter is still a very good option and Trimloype area is also getting better.
Noon update: -21 Celsius, light air from N-NW, sunny, great visibility- but clouds are moving in.
Please still be careful - there is not a lot of snow cover and the bushes and rocks could give you a hard time.
