Juletur til Sylan, Ramsjøhytta (25-29/12/2019)

We did not travel south over the holidays for the first time this year. Uncertain if we would find acceptable skiing conditions and how it would work with 4:30h of daylight, we started our Christmas cabin trip at Bjørneggen at the northern end of Sylan and aimed for cozy Ramsjøhytta. The snow layer at the wind-exposed parts was just enough and we got to enjoy sun in our face for a few minutes. The second half of the ascent was unpleasently foggy. As was the next day. We had a chill rest day at Ramsjøhytta before we set off to Storeikvollen at sunrise the next morning.
