The weather at Hafjell that day was both gorgeous, and cold I think the temperature said 10 below zero. For a girl who is easily cold (I am seated in front of a warm fire…as this post is being written)dragging out a camera, and taking photos can be quite a hassle. Plus taking enough photos is another story ….
This time I thought I would bring you some tips for beginners, and these are all things I wish someone had told me when I first started out some well…many many years ago. As I ski more, and more not only in Hafjell/Kvitfjell but other places there are some tips you should be told the minute you hit the slopes.
All the points above are worth thinking about when you first choose to strap on a pair of skins, and do that first ascend either with your man/some girlfriends or by yourself.I first fell in love with this form of “hiking” when I got together with my soon to be husband , and have after many a afternoon spent outside after work, gotten to love it over time.
Gliding down a mountain through virgin powder with the sun glistening on surrounding snow covered peaks, all topped with a deep blue, clear sky, has got to be one of the most incredible feelings on earth…
Here are a few tips for skiers of all levels to help you enjoy the sensation as much as I do!
