This week is special. It's the traditional wintersport week for disabled people at Venabu. Special kinds of skis and equipment. Still nice and sunny or just a few clouds.

After Easter

Still good skiingconditions and nice, cold weather. This week is the last week of the season, which is sad, because it's still good for skiing. We had temperatures above 0 Celsius for three days (+4,3 at the highest, the 3rd of April), but still cold nights. We had long and short tour every day, mostly in the open area (North and East), because of the nice weather. Light and gentle breeze from north most of the week, made it feel colder than it was.


View towards Rondane

View towards Dynjefjell



The waterfall still looks Nice!


Some ice in the track....

A nice rest

Easter

This is the best Easter ever! Perfect conditions, still on blue wax, nice, sunny weather. Cold mornings and warmer during the day. Light breeze from the north most of the time.

Lots of people spend their holiday at their cabins, many go skiing, but once we leave the trails we don't meet that many.

We arrange skisafari, short and long tour every day. Tours round Trabelifjell, Veslefjell, Dynjefjell, Indre Uksan and the Waterfall (Myfallet). Skisafaris to Gråhøgdbu, Måsåplassen, round Bølhøgda, Svabudalen and in the Sollia area.

The photos are from the tour Venåssetra-Bølhøgdene-Venabu that we did on Wednesday.

Enjoy your Easter!

-15 Celsius in the morning, warmer during the day, ca -5 Celsius. Sunny and less wind, but still a cold breeze from the north. We did a snowshoetour to the waterfall





and skisafari to Måsåplassen


In addition we got a question Wednesday evening, if one of us could help a group that was skiing from Rondablikk to Eldåbu on thursday and continue to Venabu on Friday. Their guide had fallen and broken some ribs.


 Nice to see Svartfjell and Dynjefjell from another direction.
