I am visiting a friend in Gothenburg, Sweden April 14th and would like to extract more value out of such a journey across the Atlantic. Since April is still ski season (though, it's always ski season somewhere), I was thinking of touring some of the classic areas in Norway such as Lofoten, the Lyngen Alps, or Senja (open to literally anything though, since the crux is finding partners). Dates would be anywhere between April 1-13.
Full caveat: I have never been to Norway, and it is a large country. I think it makes sense to make a base in Tromso or Trondheim and explore from there. We can fly into either place and rent a car. This is not a cheap trip, but the more(people)-the-cheaper! I am also fine to sleep in vehicles, camp, hostel it up, etc.
I have a bunch of routes saved on FATMAP (premium membership is nice) and some recommendations from folks who have been there.
Experienced backcountry skier with excellent fitness (2000m/20km is an okay day for me) and am comfortable skiing pretty much anything short of hucking cliffs. I also love traverses. Basic qualifications for you is having stoke, being avalanche trained, and ideally have some basic terrain management and navigational skills (whatever that means to you!). We can talk about ski ability and objectives later.
Otherwise, if this trip doesn't land with anyone, I'd be happy to be connected with any VOCers in Norway that may be good buddies to connect with. :)
