(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…



From their Norwegian ‘Farfar’ they got these for Xmas. Many trips down the hill has been completed. Mummy and Daddy also have to contribute to the fun sometimes (especially when a bit tired from the playing) by pulling them up the hill again….
