(Finally) snow…

Since the snow keeps us waiting at the moment, we headed up into the mountains in search of it… And we found it!

After a (typical) slow, Danielsen Sunday morning, we dressed up in all the gear we have (just about), packed hot drinks and soup on the thermos flasks, jumped in the car and headed for higher altitude in search of snow.

Just at the top of Hafjell we found it at Gaiastova. Enough snow to impress the kids. Enough snow to have a good play. And since it was -8C and a tiny bit of wind it got a little bit cold (for the grown ups at least)… Cold enough to remember that even if I grew up above the Arctic circle, it doesn’t automatically mean I enjoy the cold!

Luckily Gaiastova was right there offering a very nice option. After a coffee and some hot chocolates and a nice relax in front of the huge fire, we were ready to play some more in the snow… Nice lodge, we will definitely be back here again!

The weather forecast is now promising us snow by the end of this coming week. Hopefully they are right, because after today, the kids are totally ready for daily play in the white stuff…

Winter fun…


Weather is a bit unreliable here in Norway as well… There has been a little bit snow, but mostly there has been a little bit snow, a little bit cold, a little bit warm and a little bit rain… That does not give much snow! Hopefully soon though!

After a relaxing morning, we did venture out in the snow for a walk and a bit of fun in the (little) snow (we have)!

Luckily we don’t need much snow for K+A to have some serious fun. We also brought with us hot dogs and yummies, so the tummies were looked after as well…

After a bit of fun, we then headed home. With a roaring fire, we then had hot chocolate with marshmallows and waffles… Yum! Hopefully the cold weather means we burn a lot of energy and burn up these treats extra fast!
