Nice to see this group still going. I have moved to the UK about a
year ago, no skiing here. But we were able to go skiing in Geilo,
Norway, for 10 days. It was my first time in Norway, and first time
vacationing w/o a car. We flew to Bergen (50 GBP round trip), took a
bus to the train station (30 min), then took a 3 hr train to Geilo.
Very impressive XC skiing scene in Norway, what can I say! But it was
mostly glacier type skiing (very exposed, windy, cold). Norwegians
did not seem to care, I preferred to stick around in the woods.
We spent Easter in our mountain cabin at the south end of the mountain
plateau that starts (more or less) by the railway line between Finse and
It was indeed a more windy Easter than normal, but conditions were
pretty much perfect: Swix VR 45 every day. :-)
