|One of the targets was to ski the Otertinden couloirs nicely located above our cabin....didn't work out this time..|

Unfortunately there wasn't really much to do on skis during the the first days. But if there's no skiing, there's always good fishing in Lyngen.

|Jeremy and his first fish ever, congrats!!!|

Luckily Mikko Lampinen (bad ass Finnish skier & Lyngen Veteran) asked us to join a little adventure up North at the Kagen Island. The whole crew bought the idea and soon we were on a ferry up north. All the efforts paid off and we got to experience beautiful landscapes with some nice lines. During the week we visited the island twice. Good skiing combined with magical midnight sun made us to forget all the last days struggles.

For our last day we wanted to get something interesting done and Forholttinden was just the right target. Now finally after 18 years I got to ski this line via little variation on skiers right. It was not just good skiing we had but the whole little adventure with crossing the fjord with leaking little boat, bushwhacking, constantly changing weather and so on. Good times!
|Our leaking ride fixed with some wood and chewing gum!|
|It looks pretty dry down below...|

Thanks for the Movement Team Laura, Jeremy, Eric & Roch for the good times! Special thanks for Movement Skis for this opportunity! Really big thanks for Mikko and Antte for great tips and company! You saved our trip! Also thanks for Stein-Erik at Sorheim Brügge. If anybody needs a good place to stay in Lyngen, give Eric a call. He'll fix everything you need!
