A little selection of memories from 2009! Many of the pictures are from tours with clients such as Skitouring in the lyngen alps, alpine climbing on Mont Blanc and Matterhorn and offpiste skiing in the Mont blanc range… There is also some pictures of friends and climbing holidays. And my beautiful wife ofcourse!
Spending christmas in chamonix means powder skiing on Grand montets in the morning, christmas lunch on Chambre neuf, donald duck on South bar and a great christmas dinner at Magnus mansion. Finished of with a great skimovie and chocolate. At least for me… Celebrating the whole day with Magnus and his kids (Jack, Oliver and Sofia) was really nice. We even managed to organize a close to classic swedish christmas dinner in the evening! Happy christmas!
The last few days has been great on Grand Montets. With a firm base, most of the Mid mountain runs are pretty good. Specialy now with the last snow falls. The only thing right know is that the wind and temperature has been increasing (since yesterday) so we will have higher avalanche risk aswell. Ciao
As usual I’m planning to spend some time in Lyngen and Tromsö this year and the spring is already getting booked by skiers who whant’s to see the fantastic landscape and ski the beautiful mountains up there. April and May will be specially reserved for the Lyngen Alps. If you are interested in the skitouring in Lyngen you can visit www.ascentdescent.com where you will find a rough program and more details. Here are some pictures from last season.
On our way to ski the Westface couloir on Jiekkevarri (1834m), wich is the highest peak in Northern Norway. You find this peak on the southern part of Lyngen.
Tre days of skiing from the Helbronner lift on the other side of the Mt.blanc tunnel has been a great start of the season. Cold as never before, good snow, great friends and sunny days… First day me, Wolfgang and Eva did a few runs on the Toule glacier. 2nd day Kaj hooked up and we skied the southface of the Entreves cutting back to the Toule glacier. 3rd day me and John went through and met Peje, Sandra and jocke. We skied the southface from col the entreves but this time down on the Entreves glacier, slightly more exposed on the top but what a run… Extreme low temperatures the last few days. Here is some pics…
The season has truly started here in Chamonix and it really feels good to be home!
