Espen Håvik about Romsdal

Espen Håvik is a ski tourer who knows the area well. "Romsdal is perfect for ski touring with tall, beautiful mountains that rise straight out of the fjords. And the area has something for everyone: Short and easy beginner trips like Smørbotntind, longer spring classics like Kyrkjetaket, and steep skiing down the Slingsby route on the mountain Store Venjetind", he says.

"From the city of Molde you have the view of the beautiful mountains, and they are just a short drive away!"

"There is usually snow between November and June, with regular refills of fresh powder through the season."

    Safety in the mountains

    Norway is an incredible place to explore, with untamed mythical landscapes, mountains, valleys, and fjords. Before you enter the outdoors, get familiar with the nine simple rules of the Norwegian mountain code to help you stay safe.

    1. Plan your trip and inform others about the route you have selected.
    2. Adapt the planned routes according to ability and conditions.
    3. Pay attention to the weather and the avalanche warnings. This is especially the case for ski tourers - check the current situation in your area on varsom.no and make sure you follow the advise given.
    4. Be prepared for bad weather and frost, even on short trips.
    5. Bring the necessary equipment so you can help yourself and others.
    6. Choose safe routes. Recognize avalanche terrain and unsafe ice.
    7. Use a map and a compass. Always know where you are.
    8. Don’t be ashamed to turn around.
    9. Conserve your energy and seek shelter if necessary.
