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.

Lots of snow shoveling. And the first ski outing for this winter.

A visit to winterwonderland! One month before the winter solstice the sun comes over the hill for not even an hour.

Turskøyter, translated "touring skates", describes ice skates that can be mounted on cross-country skiing boots. Particularly useful if several lakes are crossed.
Today Kyvannet - Lianvatnet - Haukvatnet - Store Leirsjøen and retour.

Stålis, literally "steel ice", is the Norwegian name for freshwater ice. Skating on frozen lakes is magic!
Today, we took rounds on Lianvatnet and Haukvatnet.
