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!

Thursday

-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.

7AM: -14 Celsius, light air, overcast, good visibility. Just as it looked like it would clear up around 8.30 AM, we suddenly got snow and wind from N-NE.


Update: The weatherforecast promised less wind and good conditions during the day, that really didn't happen. We had a challenging tour from Gunstadseter, through Svabudalen and back to Venabu. Still enjoyable!
