Lofoten 2016 - East side - part 2

On Wednesday the planets finally aligned for a trip into Trollfjord - I have been waiting years to go in here but it was worth the wait!

It is always hard to follow up a high quality day like that, particularly when the forecast is for strong winds, low cloud and precipitation, but on Thursday we manage to find a sheltered and bright corner of the Island with a sheltered couloir line.

The forecast was once again poor for our last day on Lofoten. With winds coming in from the Southwe decided to stay very local on a peninsular that tends to stay clearer of the cloud than the main island and made a couple of steep laps before the snowpack started to get too moist and we retired for coffee, waffles and beer!

Thanks again to Pete, John and Steve for a great week, and thanks also to Seth, Maren and all the crew at Lofoten Ski Lodge and Captain Nick and Stella on the boat! See you there next year!
