This morning’s high clouds with a forecast for deteriorating weather, encouraged us to look for some north facing terrain that might provide some good skiing. So we headed up to Rissmal-skaret, a north facing cirque on the flank of Fugldalsfjellet.
Parking almost directly at the fjord, we traveled up into the mountains.
Then it started to snow, heavily and didn’t stop for the rest of the day. By the time we reached the top of the ridge line, it had started to accumulate pretty well, providing for some limited visibility, but nice powder turns on the way down.
That was enough for Hans and I, who were soaked from the bootpack and heavy snowfalls, so we peace’d out and left the two Matt’s to go for a second run into the snowstorm.
