Røddalshorn has clearly been my February favourite, with seven afternoon ski-trips between Feb 8th and Feb 21st. It started out with 100% perfect snow, and over the next two weeks, the snow quality gradually deteriorated. After yesterday's ski-trip, I did no longer have the urge for yet another ski-trip. It would take a better skier than myself to fully enjoy a descent through crusty snow.

I reached the summit 5:30pm - just as the horizon shifted from a reddish tone to pale light. I got a beautiful view, and a terrible descent (flat light and difficult snow).
