8 AM: -4 Celsius, partly cloudy, light air from N-NE.
Today I have been skiing on my own in the area round Måsåplassen. There were some tracks there that I didn't know (and I found a track that will be nice as a change on the skisafari we have in the area).
The snowconditions this morning were beautiful! If I had started at 8 AM, I would have been fine with blue extra. Unfortunately I didn't, and it got warmer and warmer, +6 Celsius at the warmest, so the waxing got quite difficult, not even red wax worked. Here is a few photos:
New tracks

Still fresh snow on the trees.

Fresh snow

7AM: -2 Celsius, light air from N-NV, cloudy.
Lots of fresh snow, 12 mm precipitation last 24 hours. That also means we don't need klister for a few days, red wax worked fine today. Lars took these photos:
103 cm snow with the fresh snow we got last 24 h

Janyary or April?

Wheelchairs, pulks.... lots of equipment this week!

The winterseason at Venabu has almost come to an end. This week we have the special handicap-week. People with different handicaps are out skiing and sledging. It's great to see how everybody is enjoying their holiday! Unfortunately the weather has changed and it's warmer (from 0 to +6) and more wet, some snow, some rain. to all our guest that has been skiing the two or tree last weeks in nice, synny weather and  really nice conditions: you were lucky!!!!!
