TOPPTURER MED GUIDE

Alpine skiturer kan gi deg unike muligheter, utfordringer og fantastiske opplevelser i vinterfjellet. Kombinasjonen med fjord og vinterkledde fjell slik som vi har mange steder i Norge er helt unik.


Alpine skiturer, topptur eller randonee – kjært barn har mange navn – har økt voldsomt i popularitet de siste årene. Dette er en ganske ung ”sport” i Norge, men de i Alpelandene har lange tradisjoner for å gå til fjells med alpint skiutstyr. De siste årene har nordmenn for alvor fått øynene opp for hvilke muligheter dette gir og flere og flere går på ”topptur”. Vinterfjellet kan være krevende, spesielt i forhold til vurdering av snø og skred. Og leie en fjellfører er en god investering, spesielt for sikkerheten, men også for å finne den beste snøen og få mest mulig ut av turen.

ICE Norway winter 2010

Me climbing last pitch of Hydne. Photo: Kristoffer SzilasThis ice conditions in Norway has been extraordinary this winter. All over southern Norway it was cold and stable temperatures from mid December to early March. In Romsdalen where I live the conditions has been OK on some of the classic lines. But due to the little snow and cold temperatures early in the season, the smaller streams witch makes the good alpine lines froze to early to make them climbable. But other places nearby, like Eikesdalen and Geiranger has seen a lot of first ascents. Unfortunately I’ve been a lot away for work and never made it to Geiranger this winter. But I’ve had some good climbing in Hemsedal, with some first ascent and I’ve got the chance to climb some of the bigger classic waterfalls that I’ve wanted to climb for a long time.

Below you can see pictures from some of the climbs.

Guiding ice in Hemsedal

Jan. 31.2010

Last two weeks I’ve been working in Hemsedal, mostly with ice climbing. First I had Torleif for three days, we climbed Grøtnuten, Haugsfossen and a long alpine ice route in Grøndalen. This weekend I had Gunnar and Moshe on a ice course. Very cold temperatures, but in the sun it was not to bad.
