More winter images from Tromsø - March

March brought more days with good weather and fresh powder snow and below is a selection of photos from some of the ski tours. The first 2 are from a popular ski trip to the little hut Nonsbu. It is an easy track through hilly terrain and it is a nice tour all year round either on ski, foot or bicycle.

The next photo is a view towards Nordtinden from Kjølen. The weather was quite variable that day with several snow showers, and, as usual on Kjølen, it was pretty cold and windy at the top.

And last Thursday, we finally made it to Fugltinden in Malangen. Fugltinden is quite a distinctive mountain visible from the E8, the main road to Tromsø, and I had long wanted to go there. It is, however, more than an hour drive from Tromsø, so we often end up going to the more local mountains instead. It was a beautiful trip with great views all around from the top. And with good snow it was fun skiing down. Now we will have to come back to see what it looks like in summer.
