Trail marking

I went out for a few hours to put some marking sticks back on Veslefjell Rundt and towards the DNT hut. It was very adventurous, especially when I had to dig out the ski doo from a meter of snowdrift. I found it very useful looking at the snow layers while I was digging, looks like we have a pretty wet fresh snow layer on top, depth between 25-50cm and a nice layer of ice and finally a band of sugary snow towards the ground. Once the ski doo broke through the ice layer it was nothing to do, only sink and dig :) Visibility was on and off as the wind was playing its game. Still -4 Celsius, gentle breeze with gusts, the pass towards Muen is closed at the moment.
