Narvik to Straumsnes- a few photos

 The past weeks I've been making a transition into running again in preparation for the summer ahead. There is, however, still plenty of great skiing to be had in the mountains, with the decent snow cover and longer days now is the time for enjoying some longer tours.

On Friday Mike and I skied from Narvik over to Straumsnes. Highlights included 30cm of dry pow on the Forsnesvatn ramp, some sunbaked avy debris in the picturesque Isvattenrenne and hitching a ride back to Narvik with the first car that drove by. I've skied these lines many times in the past, but never got any proper photos of them, so here they are.

Mike on the ramp. Forsnesvatnrenne in the background- which we skinned up half an hour later.

A bit more dry snow to go with the pretty views on the last descent down to Straumsnes.
