First Ski Descents


Descend the 1334m Store Reindalstinden March to June

Opposite the lodge across the fjord rises the Store Reindalstinden directly from out of the fjord. The name means Reindeer Valley Summit when translated. It’s local name is Jeksel which is Norwegian for the molar tooth as the top glacier and summits appear to look like a giant molar shape. The mountain is quite technical to ascend and descend as the terrain is steep and the ski descent exposed.

Mountain name: Store Reindalstinden 1334m
Ascent: North couloir
Descent: East Face
Location Lyngen Alps Peninsula
Degrees 50 max average east face 45/50 degrees.

Skiers: Graham Austick & Ali Street

This mountain is a real jewel in the Lyngen Penisula and until today has not received a winter descent on skis down the east face. I’ve been looking at this line for many years and today the conditions were right. See the photos below.

If you’d like to ski a first descent or any of the interesting steep lines in the Lyngen Alps we also offer private guiding 1:1 or 1:2 ratios.
