Once it is sunny it feels so much warmer. We are expecting even colder weather tomorrow, but slightly changing - "warming up" for rest of the week.

Svartfjellet and the North have not been prepared or even marked this year - hopefully there will be some improvement on it soon.

Cold morning - Five tops tour

7AM: -20.1 Celsius, light breeze from N, clear.

Full day out in the Northern part of Venabygdsfjellet enjoying some climbs and descents off piste and looking at conditions. It started out as a fairly cold day, but the sun and the challenge was strong enough to keep us warm. We enjoyed skiing up to Flaksjolihogda, "Noname" peak, Svarthammern, Tverrhogda and finally Nordre Bolhogda. Great views all around!
