Alison and her guide, Elise, skied 6 hours today in blowing snow and high winds.

The snow was deep so it was quite difficult to make tracks. Given that the weather is still not cooperating, Alison and Elise are hunkering down in a rustic cabin for 24 hours to let the storm pass.

The Norwegian Trekking Association has over 500 cabins, all in remote parts of the county, which are used by adventurous skiers and hikers. Tents for sleeping–not cabins–were on the planned agenda. But just as the Norwegian weather changes unexpectedly, so do the best-laid plans!

The good news is that their spirits are high and they can make up any lost time once the weather clears.
