A week of ski-touring in the magical Sonmøre Alps means deep and fresh winter snow. That said, adventuring in the mountains means conditions and weather are unpredictable. That's why we will pick up specific itineraries on the go, considering your preferences and the Guides' advice and experience.
Arrive and settle in
Welcome to Sunmøre Alps! On the first day, you'll meet your guides, who will brief you and the rest of the group on the snow conditions, weather forecasts, gear, and itineraries.
Depending on the group's skills, we will get a few days to build confidence on this deep, fantastic snow and slopes. We will embark on easier itineraries, leaving the best for the upcoming days. We'll get the chance to know ourselves, spend time together, and enjoy the area and its most popular routes.
... finishing BIG!
Once the group is ready to go all-in, our Guides will unleash their eagerness of adventure, and you'll be there, right behind them!
Plan the best routes according to snow conditions and weather forecast alongside your Guide and the rest of the group. Ride deep and get the most out of it!
Time to get back to routine!
It's, unfortunately, time to head home. Pack your bags and say goodbye to your fellow Mapo Tapo travelers. Hopefully, we'll see you again soon on one of our summer climbing trips!
The programme is very flexible to take into account weather conditions, activities level and endurance of the group.
