Spring has arrived in the Lyngen alps even if the conditions often is like winter up high. At Ascent Descent “The Lyngen Mountains Guides” we´ve had a record season in many ways. We´ve had more bookings than before, more skiing by boat and the worst weather season ever in The Lyngen alps. It´s been plenty of good mountain memories and good skiing but all those days with clear blue sky that we are used to has been reduced this winter. The good thing is that we still have a good snow pack and are ready for the good days that comes with the calmer spring season. We keep on going to the 31st of May out here in Nord Lenangen in the Northern Lyngen alps. So for us it´s still mid season!
Opening the Ascent Descent ski lodge in Lyngen for the spring with a boat tour to Arnøya. Yesterday night we also enjoyed watching the stars and aurora borealis from the jacuzzi so we could not ask for more really. Todays skiing was pretty good considering the snowpack we have at the moment. Lot´s of hard snow over the area but two days ago we had a snowfall which covered pretty good here and there and made our ski today pleasant.
AscentDescent “The Lyngen Mountain Guides” have been specialized on the ski touring in the Lyngen alps for years know and when booking a ski week with us you get the full Lyngen experience. For 2014 we have a boat waiting in the harbor near the lodge, great accommodation with lot´s of space for up to 8 people and great dinners for hungry skiers. We work with private groups up to 8 people and we are located in one of the most beautiful areas in the Lyngen alps with great skiing just outside the door. We still have a few weeks available for booking so there is still a chance of joining our tours for 2014!
Today we went guiding ice climbing close to the city of Tromsø. Great activity for the early winter here in Tromsø and it´s a good way being active in the outdoors at the moment. Lot´s of big snowfalls lately but with snow shoes it takes about 15 min to reach the ice falls. You don´t need to have previous climbing experience to join us for a day and we offer these tours on a daily basis.
In Tromsø we provide ice climbing instruction and guiding in December – February. Send an e-mail for booking and availability.
The ski touring season has started for real in Tromsø and The Lyngen alps and today I went out with friends enjoying the fantastic early winter pow. Our avalanche courses has started and the lectures we´ve had this fall has been well visited. It looks great for the season 13/14 and for booking and requesting ski touring and courses all you need to do is to send an email from this form.
October is almost here and that´s when we get most of our requests and bookings for the Lyngen ski touring season. For 7 years we´ve been fully booked in the main season and for this winter we see the tendency of skiers who want to come already in mid february to experience the northern lights in combination with ski touring.
Booking for the Ascent Descent Ski Lodge in Nord Lenangen includes boat accessed skiing this winter as well and as usual we provide guides for day or multiple daytours in the area.
Tip! This year we also have a ski touring and avalanche course program running in Tromsø from early winter…
