My winter in Oppdal is going well. Mostly working in Onkel Pudder but I do get a day off or two to do something. Iceclimbing is been very good this winter cause it’s been cold with almost no warmer days in between. Now we finally got some snow too.

A couple of weeks I’ve been doing some avalanche research. It’s been fantastic interesting conditions for that! In january it was mainly cold and now we got some snow. There is a thick depth hoar layer and that’s been the weak layer on some avalanches we’ve got here in Oppdal.

Here is some photos from areas close to the lifts.
