Join a certified IFMGA mountainguide from Breogfjell for your skitouring around the worlds steepest cable car – the Loen Skylift.
The Skylift area Among the greatest skiing i Norway, the skitouring and descends from Loen Skylift is definetly worth a visit. This cable car brings you straight from Hotel Alexandra by the fjord – to Mt.Hoven 1000 mas. Most of the skiing in this area is in complex terrain and some descends on glaciers.
Short hike / Skitouring and freeride introduction From the top station we go for a short hike (only 150 vertical meter) to Mt.Skredfjellet. From here we can choose descends from 300 vm up to 1000 vm depending on the snow and weather conditions.
Medium / Long hike From the top station we skin up to Mt.Staurinibba (asc 400 vertical meter). From this peak we will enjoy the stunning fjord view and prepare for the first 600 m descent towards Lohøgsætra. From these small mountainfarm cottages we can either head back to Loen Skylift or go down to Loen, or we can go for a second ascent to Mt.Sundshyrna, Mt.Dispahyrna or Mt.Geitafjellshyrna. From these peaks we can drop down up to 1600 vertical meters to the Stryn Valley. After a day you will have a total dsc of 2000 vertical meters with only 1400 vm asc.
Long / Extra long hike We start by using the lifts at Stryn Vinterski to 1000mas. From the top station we hike to Mt.Natakupa (asc 400 vertical meter) before we drop down 1300 vertical meter to the Stryn valley. After a lunch at one of the nice local restaurants – we drive by taxi to the Loen Skylift and finish the day with the medium to long hike alternative. If the snow conditions all the way down to the fjord, you will be able to ski 3300 vertical meters, and skin up 1800 vertical meters.
One of the most spectacular traverses in Stryn is the Hoven – Storskredfjellet traverse. This is a long hike with many alternatives. If you would like to do the shortest version, you will have to ascend a total 1400 vertical meters which gives a total descend of 2100 meter skiing. For better skiing it is also possible to drop down many of the valleys on the way to Mt.Storskredfjellet.
The program will be adjusted to meet your skiing/hiking skills and snow/weather conditions.
