Powder Skiing and Northern Lights

By Mountainspirit @Mountain_Guides

We’d like to share some of our happy memories from the spring 2012 in northern Norway, as we’re already getting excited about going back there in March… so please watch the video!

Powder Skiing and Northern Lights – Lyngen Alps 2012 from Eva Eskilsson on Vimeo.

The consistently good skiing starts end of February/beginning of March, when day light consists of a permanent sunrise/sunset. This is when we like to make our entry up north, still hungry for deep, fluffy snow, but craving solitude and peace after a powder-hunting first half of the winter in the Alps. Our life in Northern Norway is all about good snow, happy people, nice accommodation, and closeness to the beautiful nature.

Last year we got the opportunity to first ski on the Lofoten islands (west of Narvik) before settling down in our house on the Lyngen Peninsula (east of Tromsö) for 5 more weeks of incredible skiing and stunning views (March and April 2012).

Our experiences of the skiing and the perfect set-up for an unforgettable ski holiday in Lofoten, resulted in a new program for Lofoten Ski Touring Trips (soon live on our website) for 2013. As a ski touring destination Lofoten islands are still a well-kept secret, despite its beauty and great snow. Adventurous and wild, with steep mountains rising straight from the sea, it’s a place of striking beauty. Photos in our Lofoten Ski Touring Album on Facebook.

The Lyngen Alps then delivered as usual, with regular snow falls between sunny days, and more peaks and couloirs then you can ski in a lifetime. We have more amazing photos then we can share, but an extensive selection is presented in our Ski Touring above the Arctic Circle Facebook album.
