Christmas break, day 6
Day 6 on Sjusjøen and today’s goal was Snørvillen (995m) – a top I visited 30-35 years ago, in summertime with my buddy Lars and other friends. It feels like a lifetime ago.
Today was revisit time and it meant that we would to have step outside the prepared tracks, possibly having to break trail all the way to the top.
From the cabin, we took the shortest track to the 4-way junction at Fjellmyra.
From Fjellmyra, we saw tracks in the direction of Snørvillen and decided (of course) to follow them. Karma was on steroids, finally being able to look under every bush the forest had to offer.
I was using my mountain skis today, with short skins. The skins were however in great need for more glue and didn’t stick. I had to put some blue wax on in order to get up.
And then – finally back on Snørvillen – showing off Christmas presents from my good neighbours Gunn Jorunn and Hans!
It was really nice having a look around and being somewhat familiar with the surroundings. Some tops down, others to go…
We returned to the cabin after a 10km ski-trip and while Anne and Karma were happy to relax, I headed back out with my skating skis and did an 8km round to the south – on tracks that I hadn’t tried before.
In the afternoon, the cabin owners – Anne May and Jan arrived. Unfortunately, they would leave 2 days later but we appreciated the time we could spend together. And again – my undivided attention was split between our good friends and Magnus Carlsen…
