SKI TOURING IN ROMSDALEN guides you to 50 summits in one of the best ski touring regions in Norway. Some of them are popular classics, while others are less well known. Some are accessible, others remote. Some steep, others gentle. All of them, however, can give you unforgettable experiences.
The book gives detailed route descriptions of ascents and descents in several areas. It includes aerial photos with all of the summits indicated. There is also released a ski map for Romsdalen (1: 50,000). On the custom map is all ascents and descents in the book drawn. This map is not included but can be ordered as well.
You never ski the same mountain twice. Conditions change with weather and season; fresh snow can be a blessing, but it can also spell avalanche danger. When the sun is shining in spring, some slopes should be avoided while others are ripe for the picking. This book recommends where to ski and, just as important, when to do so.
