Wednesday update

Since Robert have been busy with marking skitracks and rescuing dogs today, I can tell you that we had a really nice day today. We had a beautiful sunrise (we have been waiting for it) and a nice tour in fresh snow in the area around Veslefjell. We also went to the top, this time from the south. The other group went to the Canyon. By the time we got back, it started snowing again.

 Muen said good morning!

The change is here



Afternoon update: The weather changed significantly with more moisture and light precipitation moving into our area. We received about 3-4cm of fresh snow overnight and we had low visibility and light snow fall all day along. Despite of all these facts we had a fantastic time out around Forbundsfjellet. We do not really see so much snow cover on trees like what we saw today - it was purely amazing.

More snow on the way

7 AM: -8 Celsius, gentle breeze from N, partly cloudy. Trails prepared in last 48 hours: Trabelia rundt, Kyrkjegardfjell rundt and to Jonnhalt and back towards Lauvasaa, Indre Uksan and Veslefjell roundt. At the moment Forbundsfjellet, Trimloypa, Dynjefjellet and Svartfjellet loops are not prepared - I guess they will be today.
Snow condition outside of trails: rather firm in open areas with some hollow parts around water catchment zones, around forest areas the snow is good, but some areas expect heavier skiing (breaking through) condition.
Snow in trails is hard and almost icy, some places higher up was softer. We would still call it a klister or at least klister based skiing condition.
Looking at weather forecast for the next days: it looks very promising with more snow coming from this evening on until Sunday morning. We hope we could get a few centimeters of snow to refresh the top layer and move back to "blue" condition.

More Photos

Since we finally had a beautiful, sunny winter-day, we'll show you some more photos!

Foggy down in the valley.

Towards Indre Uksan.

The snow shows the way (or at least the wind direction)


Misty along Flaksj√łen on the way back.

Sunny day

It has been a great day out on freshly prepared trails. Nice views all around including a small reindeer herd in far distance towards Grahogdbu DNT hut.
