April 20. Welcome new groups from Spain, UK, Germany and Sweden. Very good first day with some fresh compressed snow and beautiful sunny weather.
April 18. A week filled with everything the Arctic can throw at you. Six days skied, many adventures in the rucksack. Thanks to our guests from Switzerland, Spain, USA, Finland and the UK. Snow forecast for the week ahead, it’s coming form the north so it looks like powder on the menu. Four photos below from Christopher in Hannes group.

Zig zag stair case to heaven!
April 8. Perfection, it honestly can’t really get any better than this for skiing here in Lyngen. Thanks to all groups for hanging in there for long days maximizing on the incredible conditions.
Today, Kågen Island, and double dose of Sormegaisa both north and south.
Rhian – who says people from the UK can’t ski!!
Claire too had a go and did a great job, she too from the UK. Smiles!
On the way up with pretty nice terrain ahead
Oh we met Hannes who did our route in reverse. All sides perfect snow.
Rolly polly hills, what dreams are made of…
Simply a privilege to be in the mountains today.
Unbelievable day of quality snow, scenery and mountain spirit. Groups today headed North to an Uløya island variation. Those famous Lyngen skiing conditions have landed!

Down through the central gully just below the small iced waterfalls
Attention traffic crossing
Just enough space
Late afternoon pick up by boat with the Lyngen Alps behind
Great conditions, powder from the summit straight to the lodge door. Northerly weather still bring snow showers and sunshine all within 5 minutes!

Moments of reflection
Cold northerly weather brings the powder
Fresh snow from the north brings pure powder and it’s now the 5th day with excellent conditions. Today Uløya and Kjelvågtinden was skied in brilliant conditions. Even some of us managed to leave the lodge office and enjoy some turns through the forest.
Out of the trees and into the powder
Marius looking for the red jacket up Uløya (it’s a long story!)
Up up and away, tree skiing behind Storehaugen.
And still some aurora spotted in the night sky.
April month begins with great snow conditions for our groups from Switzerland, belgium and the USA. Northerly weather system is bring moist cold air from the ocean and dropping nice powder on all areas of the Lyngen Alps and surrounding islands.

At the lodge, time to kick back and enjoy the view from the fire place.
Fresh snow has brought winter back to life with powder skiing behind the lodge. Just what the doctor ordered!
March skiing begins with some interesting conditions. Even up north we’re seen an abnormal winter so far with mild temperatures. Skiing up above 700m has been been good whereas below has seen some very hard icy conditions. The situation is improving with new snow slowly moving in after a massive high pressure system over Russia has moved which blocked low pressures reaching Northern Norway.
