Evening Talk: Norway Ski Tour in Jotunheimen Mountains

In the spring of 2013, Chuck Daellenbach and his son Keith Daellenbach skied on their Nordic skis over a nearly 60-mile ski circuit tour over the Jotunheimen mountains in the land where skiing was invented – Norway. These peaks, known as the “Home of the Giants”, are the largest concentration of high peaks in Northern Europe and contain all of Norway’s summits over 2,300 meters which are located in a national park. Chuck and Keith skied across frozen lakes, over large alpine glaciers, mountains and through U-shaped glacially carved valleys. They climbed the highest (Galdhøpiggen, 8,101 feet) and second highest (Glittertinden, 8,088 feet) mountains of Norway along the way. On their trip they saw reindeer, ptarmigan, deer, moose, and tracks of wolverine, red fox, and rabbit. While they mostly lodged in well-appointed mountain cottages, that had served as historic summer mountain dairy farms, they did spend one night high in the Jotunheimen, bivouacked in inclement conditions and freezing temperatures, camped out on a glacier containing ice compressed from snow that had fallen on their Nordic ancestors over a century ago. At the end of their tour, they spent time sightseeing in the historic capitol Oslo.
Please join Chuck and Keith in a Nordic adventure that truly is accessible to all cross-country ski enthusiasts who may wish to visit amazing Norway.
