White spring skiing

I see some of you are enjoying spring flowers popping up. Not so in Norway. We have a white spring. Actually whiter than usual because March this year is very cold. So instead of looking for flowers I go skiing in the mountains.

  1. Great expanse of the white land and the sky is your play ground.
    —– though, puddling all trough in Nordic style must be quite a work.
    Did you go through all this distance on ski ? Really ? 😀

    1. This was not really a distance, you know the skiis are gliding and I have an extra engine in front.😉 20-30 km is ok for a daytrip, this was maybe 20. Didn’t you try, Yoshizen?

      1. Yah, I noticed dog-pulled ski. Looks fun.🙂
        80 % of Japan is mountainous. So, very little chance to do Nordic ski other than a roadside on the way back from a piste. Of cause, we can do though, soon we have to climb up or down ski.
        In the snow season, my friends are doing off-piste mountain ski almost every weekend.
        But last time I did was — gosh, 25 years ago 😀

  2. Skiing looks like a great option in your situation. I’m too much of a wimp and spoiled to want to face the cold again, though I did in my younger days. My very first dog (a Siberian Husky) would have loved your area.

  3. I like this deal – I send you flowers, you send me snow ! Looks like you have brilliant light. How many hours of daylight do you have? I’m starting to think of photographing the Northern Lights this next winter and thought of your countryside as an option/destination.

  5. Beautiful photos. We didn’t have a white winter this year. We haven’t had a decent snowfall since December and it’s looking like we won’t be getting any snow this spring. At least I can enjoy the snow through your photos.

  6. I love that third shot. It seems that most of the northern hemisphere is having a late spring. It’s very cold here in the UK with snow yesterday. And I read from my contacts in USA and Canada that they are suffering just the same as we are in western Europe.
