Here some great couloirs in Lyngen Alps:

NORTH LYNGEN

1000m (1440) 40-45°

IMGP2830

TROLLVASSTINDEN S Couloir

600m (1440) 45-50° really narrow, some parts less than 160cm, with 1 rappel or down climb to enter and another rappel 5m almost at the end. I skied in 2014

500m (1512) narrow couloir, some parts 160cm. 50°

Also nice the traverse couloir from the summit, 40-45° for 600m. I skied in 2013.

Trolltinden SW couloir

800m (1426m) 800m of the couloir, 1st 60 m from the summit really steep, 55°, then constant 40° with some narrow part in the middle. I skied in 2013 but I believe had been skied before.

 Felix Couloir – Store Lenangstinden

900m (1625) 50° Andreas Franson skied in 2012 and says TD 5.3:  a really impressive couloir from the summit in the middle of the wall to a big icefall (2 50m rappels) and ski the exposed slabs to the left to enter in the last couloir.

SOUTH LYNGEN

Rodbergtinden N face:  Godmother couloir

From Lyngseidet walk along the fjord to this evident couloir who finish on the pass. Nice ski for 1300m direct to the sea (35-40°)

On the right of Rodbergtinden, Andreas Franson skied in 2012 a evident line of 1000m of 50° with a small 30m rappel to pass a ice fall on the middle. A classic couloir.

Rornestinden N face:

800m (1041m) 55° ski from the summit with some rocky parts to an evident pass, great steep ski with 2 small jumps to a small rappel of 10m and another great steep couloir to a steep part end with a jump to the last great couloir 40°

On the left side of the wall, another great line, with some steep parts 50° and some crossing in rock parts.

I skied in 2014

Balggesvarri N face

600m (1627) 45 – 50° From between the 2 summits ski down in an avalanche exposed part, traversing some seracs and crossing right under some seracs crevasses to find the small and steep couloir who gives us to the plateau.

I skied in 2014, maybe some before.

Steinndalstinden

600m 50° in the middle of the two summits ski on the left side a large part to the last rock part, who is possible to rock ski on the very right side (downhill sense) or down climb.

IMGP3040

Guhkesgaisi N face

1000m (1580) 55° really constant and exposed. Ski a steep part following the rock spurs to enter in a down climbing traverse to a steep couloir who go down to the left (ski sense) and ends in a short ice fall (down climb 10m) and a traverse to the left under the ice and rock wall. I skied in 2014
