I am in Norway this week, not far from the city of Tromso to enjoy some ski touring with friends Bryn and Dave. I visited the area last year whilst making a ski film in the area and this year have come back purely to enjoy the skiing! Its a truly beautiful area with summits of a similar scale to those that we have at home in North Wales and Scotland but with the advantage of great snow from summit to sea. The accessibility makes the area brilliant for day tours and we have been able to pick of some amazing summits, choosing aspect and angle each day to suit the conditions. They have had a slightly weird winter with a persistent weak layer in the snow pack causing lots of instability so that has meant playing the angles game all week and keeping things mellow. We have enjoyed some amazing weather, seen some beautiful wildlife, had some great skiing  and are already planning next years trip!
