Oppdal, så kald!

Plenty of new skis to try out, some fresh snow in the mountains and a good and sunny weather forecast ... And we decided to spend the week-end in Oppdal :-) As usually, perfect road trip to reach any destination in Norway: Incredible but true, we managed to arrive earlier than the official opening. Probably in order to decide what to do exactly ;-) Well, summit or powder ? A perfect mix ? End of day ... A perfect day then :-) Same as the second one, though slightly warmer. To make it a short story, after a... [Lire la suite]

Grand opening!

... of the ski season! 19h, -11°, and plenty of snow :-) No real tracks: ... and sometimes some wild snow :-) The last downhill part: Back to the (nice) starting point ... Yeepeeeeee !

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]

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]

Swedish skidag

Departure 6 am ... hard fight ... Sailing among stars for 3 hours, and eventually reaching the swedish sun...rise. Sunny skiday, but strong contrasts : -18°c below inversion, -11°c at the inversion limit, +1°c above ... We tried to stick to the top, but downhill was obviously not the sport to prefer :-) Few pictures because of dead fingers, but we couldn't resist to the nice view of åre lake, from the 950m drop we enjoyed (a lot) :-) First of the season, but not last! PS: 'was also a shopping day by the... [Lire la suite]

Global warming

Yeps. It has been only -15° this week-end. Not enough to get rid of the snow, still. We'll have to deal with it ;-) Apart from that, Trondheim was still frozen: ... and sunny: Quite an exotic winter then ...

Litt kald

For those who are wondering, yes, it's cold as well in Norway. copyright adressa.no This morning was about -23°c, our personal record so far ;-) Today was reported the coldest day in January in Trondheim for 50 years, but it is still pretty mild compared to Røros (3h driving south to Trondheim) and its -41°c today. average line = -20°c Good thing is that we still have time to enjoy fresh air :-)
