Wednesday on Trolløypa

7AM: -4.8 Celsius, light air from E-SE, partly cloudy, great visibility. After yesterday`s warm maximum temperature (+5.1 Celsius) we are expecting milder conditions today as well. It is still far from klister time, but needs smart thinking to find and take the right combination of waxes with us.

6PM update: Great "wind assisted" tour to Måsåplassen in sunny and windy conditions. Snow condition was good (blue extra/violet) despite of mild temperatures. Trails were windblown, but had solid base. The views and colours were amazing all the way to Måsåplassen.

Tuesday -Reindeer on Muen

7AM: -3 Celsius, light breeze from W-NW, overcast, good visibility. Looking at the weather forecast - we might experience some changes in the next days. It has already started with cloudy and milder conditions.

Late update: Yesterday we had an anusual breakfast time when we looked at Muen and saw hundreds of reindeer climbing up and down. We altered our original skisafari tour to avoid any disturbance to the herd, but still managed to have a fantastic day out in the Northern parts of Venabygdsfjellet - even visited Gråhøgdbu.
