Yes the snow is still here, in fact there is even more of the stuff. Myself and M took a wander around the Nattlandsfjellet Rim on Saturday. It was hard work with the extra snow and at times we were postholing through knee deep drifts but the sun was out, the sky was blue and wreaths of mist span up the hillsides from the city far below. When the mists periodically blotted out the sun you could feel the air chill discernibly. We took a short break in the shelter of large boulder, drank coffee, ate chocolate, peanuts and cashews and soaked up the rays like a couple of solar panels. M employed the arse crampon on a frighteningly frequent basis, so much so that I was starting to think that she was actually enjoying it.
On the way home we passed several local families enjoying the terrifyingly steep forest tracks on their various sleds and glissades. We must remember to pick up a snow shovel of some description. It looks a much more enjoyable and faster way to get down off the mountain and it's not often that a piece of safety equipment can be so much fun too.
