Good morning at 6AM: -1.9 Celsius, light breeze from W, partly cloudy, great visibility. After a very mixed day (strong wind, calm, mild, sunny, cloudy, snowy) we are heading into a more straightforward one. Today we are expecting weather with wind from W -SW, partly cloudy and mild temperatures (even above zero). We will be enjoying Trolloypa again, but this time from Rondablikk.
10PM update: It seems like we are experiencing pre-Easter weather in Norway, having plus degrees most of the places. Fortunately the snow was holding well and we managed to ski all day on blue extra wax. We had a perfect day skiing back from Rondablikk: wind assisted trip with mild temperatures, stunning views, good snow condition and great company. A day to remember!
Trolloypa was in good order, well marked on open areas from Kvamsfjellet to Venabygdsfjellet. We did not see anyone until we got to Eldabu, then more skiers appeared.
Looking forward to a nice and busy weekend.
