Featured Descent

Colorado » Rocky Mountain National Park

Dragon’s Tail Couloir

This is a straight forward descent, make sure you are in the right couloir.  There are cliffs and hazards all around this area.  It is a steep, 50 degree, ski run that can be dangerous.  Timing is important on a ski descent like this one.  The Left side is wider and a little less steep compared to the right side of the Y.  There are safety zones the whole way down.

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.
