Wednesday

6AM: -5 Celsius, light breeze from S-SE, nice sunrise!
We have learnt this winter that wind from S-SE means cloudy weather, even today when the forecast said sunny.
We still had great skiing conditions and good visibility. The tours today were snowshoetour to Myfallet and skisafari from Gunstadseter, through Svabudalen and back to Venabu. On the skisafari we saw reindeer, just 3-400 m away. Beautiful light on the way back.
