Katterat train station, where the rails end and the skin track start
Right, so the idea is simple. Take the train almost until you run out of tracks, get off and skin for a few hours until you reach the Hunddalen hut. Skin up a mountain, ride down, eat and repeat. This is just such a story, from last weekend together with Mattias, Aron, Erik and Jonathan. Unfortunately, Erik and Jonathan had to leave after only one day, but what a day it was!
The weather kept improving as we drew close to Hunddalen

Early evening and a nice lap under the belt, happy hut-camper
Clear instructions, even if you don’t speak norwegian. No hands pissing mandatory
After the lap we had dinner and chatted a bit before going to bed, all excited about the next day, which was the only day that actually had a good weather forecast.
We woke up to a sunny morning, and after breakfast we set out for our main objective, Storfjell.

Good opportunity to make big turns (or just straightline) on the way down the glacier
How about an afternoon climb? Aron stands on yet another summit

Skiing makes Aron hungry
Hungry but happy
Long day, two fairly long climbs, amazing scenery and of course great company. Thanks you guys for a great day, more to come soon.
