My Adventure Story
The scene was set for another skiing adventure, and the weather forecast was great. Our goal, Storlidalen, have several ascent & descent options, and after 1,5hours drive, from home, we arrived at Auna Sport at Oppdal. The guys at Auna Sport have always good advices, and the mountains around Oppdal are their backyard. The mountain area is called Trollheimen, which is "The home of the trolls". The reason must be that there are lots of steep mountains, and a lot of hided and secret places to go...for boh trolls, and skiers just like us.
After the visit at Auna Sport, we , (myself and Reidar), headed off to Storlidalen, and Nonshøa. (Could directly be translated to "The peak of nonsense"...but thats probably not the reason for the peaks name. The peak is about 1550meters above sea, and we parked the car ca 600m above sea. The sun was shining, and the conditions up "there" looked fine. Some locals told us that it had been snowing a little bit on thursday, (powderalarm!!!)but didn know how much. We buckled (G3)The saint and (G3)The Spitfire on our packs, and set the course for Nonshøa...would we find powder...???
3 hours later we arrived at the top, and the view was great. We could turn our head 360 degrees, and all we could see was peaks, blur sky, snow, and a whole lot of other "winter goals"...
The snow ok, but not great, and we had to look out for "hidden treasures" Some areas were very good, 20-30cm powder. We skied down the ridge we came up, and found our line down and safe back to the car.
When the winter really turns in, I guess you can ski about 5-6km, and there are a lot of different lines to choose from. Steep, "bumpy", chutes, and even steeper lines. I thins we will come back, when the powder alarm ring. The steepest we skied down today was about 30 degrees, and most of the line we chose back is between 15-and 25 degrees. If you want steep lines, I think some of them stretches toward 40 degrees. Steep enough for most people.....
