PlanetSKI Hits the Powder of Norway


It hasn’t snow in the Alps for weeks with the slopes packed with the half term holiday hoards.  There is a simple solution – head north to Norway. NEW

That is exactly what PlanetSKI’s editor, James Cove, has done.

“I have had a fabulous 5-weeks touring randomly round the Alps, but now it is most definitely time to move on,” said James.

He has arrived in Norway and is currently heading to Voss, Myrkdalen and then Vatnahalsen.

This Monday morning James set off by train from Bergen to ski in Voss.

He wasn’t the only one.

Not bad views from his railway carriage as he heads towards the snow filled mountains of Norway.

Norway has seen some huge snowfalls this winter in contrast to what it has been like in the Alps on occasion this winter.

Not many have been reporting on the snow in Scandinavia, but we have here at PlanetSKI:

Myrkdalen is one of the snowiest resorts in Europe with an annual average of well over 5m of snow.

Its season starts in November and continues into May.

The current forecast is for several days of heavy snow.

To says we are excited is a bit of an understatement.

Do check back later today for updated reports from James….
