And what a place this was! Herby named as “NN”. As I am a dedicated fly fisher I have learned to keep quiet when I find the good spots. We all agreed to keep this magical place for the guests of Whiteblue.
There are a lot of first descents to do around here! One thing that indicated this fact was that we were among the first skiers the locals have seen up here. They came out to chat and looked at us a bit strange, outsiders on fat “water” ski looking things, heading up the mountain for powder snow.
Breaking trail was an easy job this day. The look of what was waiting above pumped the energy levels up and moved the focus away from our tiring legs too thoughts of how good the skiing was going to be.
After a perfect lunch we moved up to the first peak. From here we got a first overview of the area on both sides of the ridge. What a beautiful place this was. Looking over the fjords, glaciers, and the Northern Arctic Ocean.
The next objective was a short climb reaching the highest point on the ridge. Reaching the top gave us another option for skiing than first planned. The northeast aspect was cold powder heaven, but a no go today as the avalanche risk was too high. But next time maybe?
After some time enjoying the views we were ready to ski all the way from the white powder summit to the blue open sea. A Whiteblue ski touring adventure in actionJ
