20. February 2012
From our base at Huso Sigurd and I decided to drive across to Golsfjellet to ski
Storfjell on this grey and very windy Monday. We found trail head thanks to
adequate signs, and set out from the car park at 11:00. Sigurd was on snow-shoes
and carrying his snow board, and I was on skis. We made it to the very windy
summit in less than 20 minutes, and soon headed back down.
