Lofoten 2014 - part 2

Day 4
A mixed forecast which turned into a belter of a day with 3 great runs on the East, South then North sides of Rundfjellet with untouched powder on all sides!

Skinning to the ridge after a great run on the East face:

An untouched South face in perfect powder? Thank you very much!

And back onto the East face for what I believe 'the kidz' would call 'cold smoke':

And some twilight powder on the North side back down to the cars:

Did I mention I quite like these islands?

Day 5 and we headed back round to the 'Big G', with Kristin joining us once again. This time we ticked the summit (nice to see the views this time after some poorly-timed mist last year!) and had a good run down the Krokelva valley followed by some 'interesting' combat skiing through the trees!

Morning view from our flat in Henningsvaer:

Geitgaljern is a stunning peak:

A couple of other teams out today:

Geitgaljern summit is a real classic 'Aiguille':

South gully looking good again:

Obligatory team shot on the summit:

It's a fair way down!:

Good powder in the top of the Krokelva:

And good spring snow lower down:

Norwegian Indians?:

A rest for weary legs on the skin back out:

Once again another high quality day in the context of one of the worst winters for snow in recent history in Lofoten!

More to follow - including another stunning result in the Wild West...
