Description

This area is a popular early season ski tour close to Tromsø, and this is a variation of the regular descents for the ambitious skier. Follow the regular ascent through the bowl and onto the ridge leading up to the peak.

You get a good look at where you drop in from there. In the early season a narrow "rampy" couloir leads do a very skinny choke.

The exit is clean though, so you can carry speed.

I rode it early December 2020. If you come here later in the season it will have filled in more and will definitely be easier to manage.

There are also lots of other fun options in the area if this one seems to heavy for you.

I'd be stoked to see someone else give it a go! Hit me up on Instagram if you do: @nikolaischirmer
