Our goal was north side of the Storsteinnestinden at Kvaløya. We were also lucky with snow this time. We were at the top around 00:30am and skied down around 1:30am. Because of the warm weather around +10 Celsius degrees snow was soft, but sun effect at middle of the night was not too strong to make it rotten. Just perfect summer snow. Trip end up to be best summer skiing trip I have ever had. 1:00 am http://www.backcountryguidingnorway.com Furberg Snowboards Black Diamond June 5, 2012 at 12:44 pm #657004 FreerideFitness 72 Posts Beautiful photos and great place!!! :thumpsup: June 5, 2012 at 3:01 pm #657005 BGnight 1382 Posts Now that is just plain rad.

That’d be so sweet to ride in those conditions. June 24, 2012 at 5:25 pm #657016 SchralphMacchio 474 Posts Awesome Toke! If one wished to research plans for a 2-week skiing/boarding trip to Norway … any resources you recommend? Also, Doug Stoup / IceAx.TV has an annual boat trip to Spitsbergen that looks very interesting. I am thinking that now is the time to start saving money and planning for a 2 week trip to Norway in May or June! June 30, 2012 at 1:04 pm #657017 Toke 69 Posts Well best guiding you get from here: http://www.cohkka.fi/news.aspx There from you can find best guides for Northern-Norway, Troms area. Ode and JJ have been snowboarding around Troms about 10000 years. You can also ask about heliskiing if you want to do that. If you plan to go with out guides, I can give you a lot of hints where to go and where not to. Im splitboarding here about 100 trips a year, so I know little about this place. Welcome to shred! :headbang: http://www.backcountryguidingnorway.com Furberg Snowboards Black Diamond May 14, 2013 at 9:13 am #657018 SchralphMacchio 474 Posts bump for 2013. This is one of the most beautiful TRs ever posted here. Hopefully I get some just-as-beautiful midnight sun lighting when I am in Spitsbergen next week! And tonight I hope to find some of that light on Kvaloya if my gear arrives in time! Viewing 16 posts - 1 through 16 (of 16 total) You must be logged in to reply to this topic.
