Koto, Trabelifjellet, Vardkampen
Continued from Easter vacation, day 4:
We checked out from our rented cabin on Kvamsfjellet around 9am on Wednesday morning, and parted with our friends Lena and Terje. It was snowing (lightly), but Anne and I decided to drive down to Kvam and up to Sødorpfjellet and see if we could find an easy approach to Koto.
We could drive all the way to Ressætra, which was only 1,7km west/northwest of Koto.
We skied along the road to Skardsætra, very happy that it wasn’t snowing up here and that we had a reasonable view.
Thanks to the temperature last night, along with the snowfall, skiing was gorgeous. The snow carried our weight and we enjoyed ourselves big time!
It didn’t take us long to reach the top of Koto, which we will always remember as K2.
It was only 100 vertical meters from Koto to Skardsætra, but the descent was beautiful! The 3,6km trip took us only 40 minutes, and I was thrilled about getting my new 6th new pf100 (primary factor > 100 meters) top this Easter.
We were on our way to our friends Eva and Bjørn in Hov (Søndre Land), and we were ahead of schedule. As such, we decided to drive up to Venabygdfjellet and ski Trabelifjellet.
This would indeed be a short ski-ascent, but at least it would be a new top! The weather was OK, although the light was bit flat…
We reached the top after 25 minutes, and extended the trip slightly by visiting the 1093m top 0,4km to the north.
The (short) descent to the trailhead was nice. The snow carried our weight, my skis were speeding and Karma got a good run on my tail.
VERY happy about my 8th Easter top, we were now definitely on our way to Eva and Bjørn in Hov. Until I noticed a forest top above Tretten that caught my attention. Surely – this had to be a pf100m top, and wasn’t there a road going pretty high?
Anne checked the map, confirmed my suspicion, and all of a sudden, we were on our way to a new top! On foot!
The distance to the top was 1km (+) and at 3:47pm, I could claim my 9th Easter pf100 top!
After a quick descent, we were on our way to Hov for sure! It was Eva’s birthday, and we absolutely wanted to the reach the 6pm sour cream porridge!
