“Everyone wants to ski Lofoten” said the young local guide with a wall-to-wall smile. I hadn’t realised how popular a destination it had become perhaps due to me not following any social media. It’s popular but as soon as the obvious classics are skied there are endless objectives just waiting for fresh tracks.
23 wasn’t the best year for conditions due to bizarre weather patterns (becoming more of a theme) but there was enough snow for the first team to have a blast. Unfortunately for the second group the weather gods had obviously decided that enough fun had been had so called time on the sun. Everyone made the best of things and we hope for better luck next time.
Lofoten is a stunning place to ski. The juxtaposition of sea and mountain never gets old.
