Backcountry ski tour

Skiing in the arctic outback

They say norwegians are born with skis on their feet. This is not true to clear that up, but we do enjoy heading out, exploring the arctic winter on skis.

The love for skiing is not only the sport itself, but is about the views, the light and the small conversations by the fire during a break.

Join on us a venture into the  backcountry. Our handmade skis are perfect for the first time ski adventurer. A little shorter and a little wider they give you the stability of a snowshoe with a joyous ski feeling. 

On this tour we head out to a suitable place according to the snow conditions and glide into the backcountry.
