Bymarka ... on the fjord!

A new itinerary this sunday, and apparently we are not the only ones to enjoy it:   Perfect view on the downhill part:   ... and a shelter (?), just in case ...

Ski vs handball ...

Huge pressure to withstand until 17h ... And in that case, nothing can beat some typical outdoor activities: -11° to jump on a nice start: And from about 13h, a long, soft and cold sunset to admire: An incredible light is surrounding us: Lost in the middle of Norway ... ? No ... !!! After 3 hours skiing, it was time and cold enough (-17°) to get back home, and to prepare for the fight. Norway vs Sweden, once more, in the EHF, for the final. The first half was a bit stressful, but probably just... [Lire la suite]

Sunday = ski

An ordinary ski session at our place: Just before sunset ... understand about 15h00 ;-) We ended up with 3 loops, which was not so bad :-)

Trondheim's fjord

20 kms return to enjoy fresh air, sun, and some snow left in Bymarka. Riding to Gråkallen was OK with the bike, but once at the top, it was easier to walk in about 50 cm snow ... Though skiing might have been more efficient :-)

Extreme skiing ...

I didn't actually know that was possible ... but yes, cross-country skiing can be extrem. OK, less extrem than ski jumping (there was a competition this day): Where is Charlie? But still! The weather was perfect to get tanned, but not exactly easy for beginners in cross-country (like me). Bad waxing means very slow and exhausting activity ... but also plenty of time to enjoy the scenery :-) Still, everyhting was almost OK ... until the "sonday slope" led me to wild terrain, where my skis &...

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 ?

Snow walking ...

It was supposed to be more relaxing than skiing. The sun showed up, and Trondheim was smoking.      Of course, walking in 40 cm wet snow was much more exhausting than skiing. But it was fun after all :-) Another nice Norwegian day ...

Warm snow

Yes, that's possible: Melted snow + rain = very heavy and wet snow. Not exactly easy to ski on: Good news is that we are improving our "langrenn-style" :-)

Ooops, we did it again ...

Sunday morning, about noon: Sunny sky among snow showers! Within five minutes, our new beautiful shiny car is eager to drive the fresh snow: we are almost Norwegian now :-) And some minutes later, sun is still here! Incredible!     ... and we are ready to make the track:      Nice day as well, as we managed the good sunny timing :-) Cross country skiing is goooood :-)
