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

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

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

Guratinden (581m) – Bulitinden (5??m) Traverse, Lofoten, Norway, 23 April 2011

Or at least that’s what I called it. This little mountain is right on the doorstep to Leknes and you can see it from the parking lot of the shopping centre. It’s pretty much West-North-West facing. The couloir on Bulitinden … Continue reading

No snow……no splitboard…….but mountains! Lofoten is at a latitude of 68 degrees. Basically way up there past the Arctic Circle (66 degrees 33′) which means it’s dark all winter and light all summer (give or take a few lumens ;)). … Continue reading
