"New in winter highland" is a mix of everything. This is not a peak trip with a lot of downhill, but a ski tour for beginners. The purpose of the trip, which is also a course, is that you will get an introduction in basic techniques, how to act in a DNT mountain hut, snow profiles, how to dress, ski techniques, gear, equipment and much more. This course is perfect for those who want to have an introduction to winter skiing in Norway. This course runs over two days with accommodation at a tourist lodge. Participant must have skis, ski poles, sleeping bag and basic winter clothes.
The guide will pick you up outside the touristi nformation in Stavanger city centre at 8 pm. From there a cab will bring us to Sirdal which will be our starting point. In Sirdal, we get ready for heading to the mountain hut Taumevatn, a nice DNT cabin. The track, eh..there is no track. But the first part is very easy. We go along a road covered by snow, straight forward. After two hours, the track moves sligthly uphill, before we enter the winter highland. The last part will be a little tricky between trees and the crossing of some frozen rivers. Very nice, I promise you.
At Sandvatn there will be a nice dinner. There is no electricity so we use gas for cooking. And of course, you are out of range for signal to your cellphone, relax, you are in the mountains now.
On this tour, there will be lessons in ski techniques, snow and snow profiles, clothes and equipment, nice to have, must have, and much more. The language will be English if there are guestsvfrom others countries.
Participants must bring
Skis and ski poles
Sleeping bag and mat
Complete packing list will be sent
