Snödump i Kittelfjäll

Last weekend weather forecast said more than 10 cm of new snow to Borkafjäll.

If I have learned anything in the past few years in winter climbing, it’s this: When a big snowfall is coming, don’t go alpine climbing.

I’ve been in Borga and Borka so many times, in good weather and in bad weather, and I have never looked the mountain at parking lot and said: “Looks bad, let’s go home“. Instead, it goes always like this: “Looks bad...hmm... let’s give it a try!”

I'm pretty sure the best and only thing to do to avoid climbing is just to leave the climbing gear at home. After all, there are other things you can do with powder snow...


 More Kittelfjäll


 More snow


 More powder

 I found a virgin couloir

 Anu and her first black piste

 No powder, but there are some steeper sections

Home sweet home
