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 ...

Literally northern lights, i.e. aurora :-) Finally, the solar cycle is making us happy:

Sonvasskoia # 2

Sunday morning view :-) Not too bad, and everyone goes out to enjoy snow:   ... sun ... and ghosts: Ready for expedition dreams: ... along wild, white and lost landscapes: Our - humble - summit of the day: Back "home", to the daily routine :-) Well ... almost. Sometimes you also have to leave, and go back to civilisation :-( But, fortunately enough, the journey back is usually an adventure itself ... Heia Norge !

Stabburet !

That was a long time without any cabin trip ... ... and we felt like a very traditional one would be perfect for that week end :-) Some 2h skiing, no tracks, and a superb sunset: ... before the storm starts ... 800 m from the end of the obvious way, and yes, we managed to find it :-) As you can imagine, it is a 2-people cabin :-) ... however very cozy! There was even some more snow on sunday, so that we needed to dig - again- our way to the toilet: ... and we finally understood why we spent more than 1h to... [Lire la suite]

Summary of Winter 2011 so far ...

The beginning of January was incredibly snowy, and going for a cross-country session was the perfect start 2011: Another way to enjoy the snow ... look around: ... and (try to) walk in 50 cm fresh snow: ... in order to visit a cabin. First step before actually spending the night there (for our guests!) ... Some (strange) ice as well in Trondheim: ... and still beautiful skies above the fjord ... Not so much daylight ... but ... does it really matter ? Haukvatnet lake, 10 min walking... [Lire la suite]

New Year's Eve !

To make a short story of a long story ... here are some snapshots from our New Year's Eve :-) Lots of food to start with: ... and Champagne "on the rocks" to follow ... ... while admiring the superb fireworks from our garden, in perfectly-shaped snow sofa :-) Happy New Year 2011 !

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]

Back to normal life ...

... after an exciting handball week-end. Waiting for the bus in Lillehammer at 01h30 in the morning, arrival 7 hours later at the office, with some 40 cm fresh snow to welcome us :-) And we were right on time for the sunrise, at about 09h45 :-) Let's switch to skiing now ...

Aure - bis !

I do not remember know exactly how, but since we ended up talking about Marx at 3.00 in the morning, the time devoted to explorations was slightly reduced the day after. Fortunately, we managed to steal some precious minutes of daylight to lie on the beach: Grass or sand, we chose both: And yes, we could even add a caribbean lagoon touch to our week end ... (please enjoy the very slippy road on the bottom right corner ... we did!) ... except for the rain maybe? Takk for turen guys!
