Norway Ski Trip -- Report #3

(This is the final post in a three-part report on my trip to Norway’s Romsdal Alps in early March.)

Day 3 and 4 on the Norway trip included ski touring to peaks like Smorbottentin and Kvitfjellet, the latter an amazing 1,381-meter mountain/plateau perched between a fjord and a massive inland lake. We skied about 10 kilometers that day, skinning up the mountain, trudging a couple KMs across the plateau, then dropping off a steep south face into the valley 800 vertical meters below. Here are some photos from the adventures. . .
