Enjoy the ride (1)

We were on a tight schedule this saturday: a new ski area to discover, and some fresh snow to sign ... well, let's say about 40 cm :-) If you add snowboard tricks to learn in the morning, and deep powder skiing to follow in the afternoon ... that explains that we only had time to take one picture, at the end of the day. But believe us, that was an awesome day ;-)

Røros søndag !

Alarm clock for an early sunday morning, and for once we were on time.

Flat portions were easy and fast, uphill was sometimes exhausting in case of running to help the dogs ... ... and dowhill was just crazy, flying over bumps, and... [Lire la suite]

Røros lørdag ...

Everything was coherent: -31° at 7h (when we were sleeping in our nice hytta), and -23° when we got up at 9h30 ... Welcome to Røros :-) We actually arrived in the previous night, so it was time to enjoy Røros with its winter atmosphere: Lots of sledges everywhere, I guess that was the fastest way to go shopping in this city :-) However, our point was not shopping, but snowboarding. And the ski area right in the middle of the city happened to be perfect! Very few people, but us ... Nice sights ... Again... [Lire la suite]

Norwegian chocolate

Yes, there is some Norwegian chocolate (and there is even a factory in Trondheim!). Check it out! Quite a popular commercial those days :-)

Rønningen

Another sunny day outdoors: Sunholic, or snowholic ... or both :-) We're still in a mood for finding the perfect living place, or rather living space: ... an alternative if many visiting friends: and maybe the perfect compromise ?

About being a lizard ...

... lying on the sun ... ... by a lazy day ... Going upper, hoping for best ... ... and feeling the wave :-) On our way back, we met the dream: ... for a lazy lizard: And I know that's incredible, but it was so close to Hell ...

Holmaskoia, dag # 2

After a freezing night, here we are :-) Our nice, however not heated room ... Some holes in the roof in addition to that :-) It was -17°c outside, so after a short ski trip, we prefered to take pictures of the inside. Perhaps the most important part: watch the stove and make water: Another essential concept in cabin trip: food & drinks to keep warm :-) Or maybe some music as well. yes, it's a real piano The sauna was sadly not heated anymore, but available for pictures. Just imagine :-) ... [Lire la suite]
