Description

The cool thing about Store Vaggastind is that there is snow in the couloirs all year, so when the first snow falls in autumn you can go right here and have a good time.

The approach is long, but if you spend the night in the cabin at the foot of the mountains that really helps.

Book your stay at the local Joker store in Nord-Lenangen. This westernmost of the north facing couloirs is steeper towards the top and has a narrower choke.

Sluff management is key here.

When we rode it early season (October) there were no hazards from above, so if you want to avoid the cerac in the other colouir this is a good option.
