May is here and one of the finest periods in the Lyngen alps. AscentDescent Ski Lodge is filled up to the end of the season and lately we´ve had a great mix of visitors enjoying some fantastic spring skiing. Great team from Gothenburg last week who probably made the highest score of the season when it comes to good weather and conditions. Just finished a few days with a pro skier team from Sweden and Finland enjoying the Lyngen couloirs! New groups rolling in tonight…
At the moment we have some of the best days of the season here in the Lyngen alps. Hard to find good powder skiing but the entire range is a playground with stable snow and fantastic spring skiing in the sun. Enjoying fantastic days at the AscentDescent Ski Lodge in Lyngen and even if we have a pretty shallow snow pack in places the cold nights is saving the rest of the season. 2016 is getting filled up as we speak and it´s really fun that 10 years of hard work is paying off!
It´s been fantastic guiding in the Lyngen alps lately. Good snow, stable conditions and great weather. AscentDescent Ski Lodge is filled up with happy skiers and guides and we enjoy the North Norwegian ski culture of fishing, skiing by boat, great local food and some of the best ski touring on the planet. Please make ready for 2016 all ready since 2015 is full and bookings for 2016 is picking up!!

March is always a month when we have a lot of mixed conditions. It´s been windy and warm lately with occasional rain showers. More snow is around the corner as we´re filling up The Ascent Descent Ski Lodge in Lyngen with guides and groups. The best time of the year for skiing in the Lyngen alps has started and we´re not stopping until June and summer arrives.
Opening week here in the Lyngen alps and AscentDescent Ski Lodge Lyngen. A lot of good skiing but also mixed weather. Early in the week we had some calm days but this weekend the wind has started to pick up. We have three months of ski guiding in the Lyngen alps in front of us and the groups, guides and staff are ready to welcome our guests. Best Regards / Jimmy Halvardsson
As usual we get a lot of mixed weather in the Lyngen alps and Tromsø this time of the year. Last weeks has been exceptional with lot´s of heavy storms and avalanche activity. Sticking to low angled skiing up high or tree skiing down low has been the key and the snow has been amazing. We´ve had a few days of sun in between lately and being out guiding in the sun after weeks of heavy snowfall is almost unrealistic. The season at AscentDescent Ski Lodge in the Lyngen alps is about to start, opening the doors on the 1st of March.
Just back from two fantastic weeks of travelling and skiing on Hokkaido, Japan. A perfect way to start the season, get the legs started and motivating for a long ski touring season in The Lyngen alps. As a group of 5 we made a loop starting out of Furano and finishing with two day of skiing in Niseko, skiing for 9 days in total and 6 different resorts. All the resorts and places we visited unique in it´s own way and I can´t wait to get on my next flight, back to Hokkaido. With a packed guide season in The Lyngen alps coming up it looks like next trip to Hokkaido will be in January 2016, definitely worth waiting for…
Thanks to Vidar, Johan, Pelle and Håkan for good spirits all the way and a once in lifetime experience!
