Narvikfjellet Freeride & Ski Touring
I am running a freeride & ski touring program out of Narvikfjellet, a small ski resort in Arctic Norway in the town of Narvik. Narvik has gained a reputation for its excellent off-piste skiing right above the arctic sea. Rightfully so - the top of Narvikfjellet is the start of seemingly endless ski touring terrain and some of the best list-assisted off-piste skiing/snowboarding in Norway. I lived an guided around Narvik for 2 seasons and established the resorts freeride and ski touring program. So whether you prefer a quiet ski tour or a day freeriding – I have got something for you.
Ride Narvikfjellet's legendary back-bowl lines like Mørkholla or Tredjeholla! Going with a certified ski guide gives you access to first-hand avalanche information and the best snow of the day - and access to his favourite lines. Lifts take you to 1000 m, from where some runs are accessible - but the better lines require some walking up (20-30 min) to reach the north and south facing runs of Tredjetoppen (1272 m). Ski bindings with walking function or splitboards are preferable. Note that this program requires that upper chair lift to work. Should weather/winds prevent the lift from running, you have the option of switching to the ski touring program.
Narvikfjellet`s new cable car to 659 m gives you a quick start and immediate access right out of Narvik, and if weather permits, the chair lift to Linken 1003 m gives you even faster access. Once you put your skins on, you can quickly reach quiet areas with a large variety of ski touring terrain. Your ski guide will pick the best tour for you, depending on the weather, avalanche conditions and your fitness level. Examples include Tredjetoppen (1272 m) Moskočohkka (1254 m) and longer, demanding tours around Beisfjordtøtta (1448 m).
We also take you outside of Narvikfjellet, to ski touring areas. The region offers endless opportunities for ski touring in stunning areas untouched by the crowds, such as Beisfjord, Tyfjord or the spectacular Skjomen fjord. The variety of terrain is unique in Norway. Moderate long slopes to steep faces and steep couloirs, short tours to 1700m vertical in the glaciated world of Frostisen (1724 m). Tours are picked depending on skill set, experience of the group, weather and avalanche conditions.
This program is designed for intermediate, advanced and expert skier or snow-/splitboarders with previous skitouring experience.
