Summer and midnightsun trips are something special. 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.

I agree with ale_capone...that first pic is incredible. That'd be so sweet to ride in those conditions.
