17/2/2017 This is the most logical line to ski down the north side of Trolltindan, in Romsdal (Norway)
The summit is at 1788m, the botom of the face at 100m. The botom of the downhill at 25m. So 1688m of ski line. The average inclination is around 50°. The downhill is divised in 4 parts:
1- From summit to pass: from summit going down south following a couloir and standing as close as possible to the ridge, 5m uphill to pass. Easy ski with some dry ski. 80m-40°
2- From pass one abseil (40m) down, then some little ridge skiing and entering a small couloir until a icefall to do a 2nd abseil (40m). 200m-60°
3. Some face turns very steep 60° to entern a long and narrow couloir at 50-55° for 500m. then large and less steep and steep crossing to a small cave, where need to climb 10m, easy but steep and exposed.
4. The lower 900m are less steep, in average 45°, but with short steep sections often with blue ice. easy to get lost.
February 17th 2018 Conditions were good, I had been looking fore the past month the wall waiting for good conditions and entered the first 300 meters of the route to touch-it. That day I didn’t know if I was going to do a reco or ski all the route. I pass the farm around 9AM and start climbing, conditions ere perfect and I climbed fast, after 1000m I saw that was the day to do-it, so I climbed to the summit in less than 3 hours. I install the abseil and start skiing.
