Svalbard Mountain Ski Festival

SvalTopptur142Last weekend in May it was time for the third Svalbard Mountain Ski Festival. About 100 happy and eager skiers arrived Longyearbyen for a long weekend out in the field. Trygghamna (Safehaven) was chosen as Base Camp, where you have several guided options for summiting and good downhill skiing. Just to mention, the Protektor-mountain, Daudemanen, Svenskeegga plus other opportunities.


Rune was asked to give a lecture at the festival, and also enjoyed the skiing and speed-raid opportunities. The weather was poor most of the weekend, but people got out on ski and enjoyed the party and the amazing food. Not to forget. The weather change quickly on Svalbard, and there were several stunning moments were the clouds broke up and the sun came through. This gave everyone some magic moments.
