SKI TOURING IN TROMS IS AVAILABLE TO BUY IN THE GEMSSTOCK SHOP & BACKCOUNTRYBOOKS.CO
Ski Touring In Troms is an essential buy for anyone heading up north to ski the peaks around Tromso. Written by Espen Nordahl – a local mountain guide and ski legend who runs Midnight Sun Mountain Guides – Ski Touring In Troms is full of informative route descriptions and super inspiring images from one of the best touring venues in Europe.
Each chapter has map overviews of the routes along with detailed descriptions, map coordinates, slope gradients and advice on technical difficulties involved. More than anything, the guide highlights just what a rich area for backcountry skiing and snowboarding Troms is. Many skiers will recognise the names of Lyngen and Tamok for example, but they make up just a fraction of the terrain on offer in the region.
The combination of majestic mountains bathed in Arctic light and rising straight out of the ocean is what makes this area so special. If you haven’t experienced the all round awesomeness that a trip to Lyngen and the surrounding mountains can bring, it’s time to start planning for next spring. Just make sure you take this guide along with you.
Mountain areas covered:
Balsfjorden – Tamok Valley
The Lyngen Alps
The Kafjord Alps – Uloya
Ski Touring In Troms is published by Fri Flyt and is available in both Norwegian and English.
