Ski touring in the Sunnmøre alps
Have you heard about the Sunnmøre Alps and the incredible ski touring here? Come and join us for a couple of days ski touring around the area and fall in love with this region and it’s mountains. Looking to combine a day of touring with a day at the resort or other activities? Contact us to create an experience tailored to your needs.
Based in the heart of the Sunnmøre alps, we are perfectly located to select from dozens of peaks above 1500 m . It’s a special feeling to start your day in the valley or by the fjord and work our way up to the alpine peaks to then, when the conditions are just right, ski from the peaks all the way to the fjord!
Many first ascents in the area were made by famous British mountaineers like Wiliam Cecil Slingsby and Charles Watson Patchell in the early 1900s. They came back year after year and have left a lasting mark on the area. Patchell also set up Patchell-hut at the foot of Mt Slogen, whereas Slingsby established his own climbing route(Slingsby-route) up from Villa Norangdal to the top of Mt Kvitegga.
Today, the same scenery and mountains that drew Patchell Slingsby has seduced international advertisers and ski movie makers. Over the last few years, Volvo cars, Peak Performance, Universal Pictures, Field Productions, Solomon Freeski tv and Warren Miller Entertainment come to experience the magic of the Sunmøre Alps. See some of the clips on this page.
