First real snowfall came last week and for some days now we´ve had amazing autumn weather in the lyngen alps. At the moment we are improving the Ascent Descent Ski Lodge in Lyngen and our new cabin for the guides is getting ready for the winter. Please get in touch for our classic ski touring weeks for the 2016 season. We are also looking forward to our 10 year anniversary in the Lyngen alps this winter and to use our expanded lodging facilities.
These pictures where taken a few days ago on our way to the lodge…
October is the month when we often get the first proper snow falls in The Lyngen alps and some years we start the ski touring way before christmas.

We still have available weeks through the season so please get in touch to get your dates in the calendar. Our ski touring weeks is the complete Lyngen experience with local food, private guiding, boat rides and a relaxed stay at the Ascent Descent Ski Lodge. All groups and levels are welcomed to ski with our locally experienced and certified guides and enjoy the magical scenery of the Lyngen alps.

Just back from guiding on the highest peak in The Lyngen alps, Jiehkkevarri 1884m. The summit plateu consists of big glaciers and in order to get to the top you traverse over three neighbouring summits. A great experience which do not involve that much technical climbing but it´s steep hiking in places and it´s a proper alpine experience.
Now is also the time to start planning next winters skiing in the Lyngen alps. Our ski touring program with boat accessed ski touring is getting more and more popular. To get a spot at Ascent Descent Ski Lodge in Lyngen in 2016 you just need to send a mail from the contact page and from there we will help you to customise your ski touring trip.
Finishing of the Lyngen skitouring season with a great ski weekend at the AscentDescent Ski Lodge in The Lyngen alps. Last weekend of May has been our season finisher for years now even if guiding continues in the range from other locations. Guiding non stop in the Lyngen alps from late February to early June makes for a great summer vacation and preparing for a new season.
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!!
