Silver Couloir

Nearly 3000' of skiing awaits those who put in the effort to climb to the top!!!  The Silver couloir has been regarded by several (Lou Dawson - Wild Snow, Chris Davenport - 50 Classic Ski Descents of N. America) as one of N. America's classic lines.  I have to say I agree.  The couloir is very wide (narrow section is 50 feet??), moderately steep at around 40 degrees, and LONG!!!

Details

Romsdalen is an ideal climbing and skiing destination in Norway. It is easily accessible by train from either Oslo or Trondheim (nsb.no) or fly to Mølde. The access town is Åndalsnes. Most of the back country skiing needs a car but it is easy to hitch hike in this area because most locals are avid skiers/climbers and work offshore in the North Sea so they work 2 weeks then have 4 weeks free, so it isn't a problem to hitch. If you like warm, 24 hour light skiing. There is a road called Trollstigen that opens end of May or early June where you can ski right from your car at 2am. The best time for skiing here is spring..march, april. You ski right up from the fjord so each peak has amazing views. The classic mountain is Kirketakke.  I think Vengatind, Nonstind, and Finnan are also classics with over 1000 m runs.
