Presten Couloir (500m), near Henningsvær, Lofoten, Norway, 5th April 2012

The weather continued to be unstable today, so we decided on a couloir again for best visibility. I saw a youtube video on the Presten couloir a couple of years ago and Luca saw it recently himself, so we thought … Continue reading

South Couloir, Stornappstind (740m), Lofoten, Norway, 4th April 2012

We’ve had the odd bit of new snow over the last few days but nothing more than a few centimetres. We don’t really need much more snow now to be honest. Things are shaping up nicely in the snowpack locally. … Continue reading

East Ridge of Hustinden (691m), Lofoten, Norway, 2nd April 2012

We’ve finally got a little variation on the theme……… We went to bed and it was snowing and we woke up and it was snowing. What is going on? I don’t think it could really get much better than this … Continue reading

Middagstinden på Flakstad (520m), Lofoten, Norway, 1st April 2012

I hate to repeat myself but once again we went to bed to clear skies and woke up to clear skies and the snow fairies had once again been with about 10cm of new snow. And if you want any … Continue reading

West Face Stornappstind (740m), Lofoten, Norway, 31st March 2012

We arrived in Lofoten last night to clear blue skies…..and again woke up to clear blue skies this morning. And somehow in between the snow fairies managed to bring a light dusting of new snow. That put a big smile … Continue reading

Loftet (2170m), Norway, 20th January 2012

I headed up to Jotunheimen again with old friend, Jørgen, in the hope of finding an improvement in conditions to be able to ski something a little more interesting further in the Leirdalen valley. As the road is closed for … Continue reading

Gaustatoppen (1883m), Norway, 8th January 2012

I must have been to this mountain about 5 times now, this being the first time since I started this blog. It’s about a 2.5hr drive from Oslo and the closest decent mountain from Oslo I’m aware of. It’s really … Continue reading

Road Trip – Isfjorden/Jotunheimen- Norway – 28th to 30th December 2011

The first post of the new season and it’s a bit of a wishy washy one to be honest. Failed attempts on a couple of peaks, bad conditions but a great three days away nonetheless. I’ve decided to call a … Continue reading

Store Smørstabbtinden (2208m), Norway, 30th April 2011

Back to some relatively higher mountains, if only in altitude, after a great week in Lofoten a few weeks ago. I saw this mountain driving back from a litte session of splitboarding at the end of last year (click here) … Continue reading

South West Shoulder of Ristinden (862m), Lofoten, Norway, 24th April 2011

This is an absolute stunner. Another peak you can gaze at while sipping on your coffee in Leknes. There’s a steep couloir straight down the middle (for another time, ski buddy required), skiing the ridge all the way down or … Continue reading
