Additional information:

Narvik area is located approximately  around 68 of the parallel, and approximately 250 km beyond the arctic circle, yet there aren't too freezing cold winters thanks to the Gulf stream. Gulf stream on the contrary brings plenty of precipitation, thanks which are here during all season plenty of fresh snow ( 1,5-2,5 m).  The slopes are mostly covers of the rubble and stones, so the risk of avalanches is not so big as on the base as the grassy slopes.  Climbs and descents take place on peaks with a height between 1100-1600 meters. It begins with the majority almost from the sea and all the slopes, chosen by us are not covered by glacier. Therefore is not need the glacier equipment. On all the peaks you can climb on skis, no need to use an ice axe or crampons. In one day will take place always only one climb, and followed by downhill along or next to the climbing routes. The ideal time to undertake ski mountaineering in this area is the end of March and end of April = day is long enough,and there is enough of the snow in excellent quality. For descents and ascents we have selected and many times tried about  10 peaks or slopes, from which we choose the best always for the given  day and current weather conditions.  Another option to ski mountaineering climbs is the possibility to try skiing with a helicopter in the 50km remote Riksgränsen on the Swedish side of the border in the National park of Abisko, where it operates the heliskiing our cooperating organization Mountain guide.

 We know perfectly the whole area and the local weather!
