Log in to snowHeads to make it MUCH better! Registration's totally free, of course, and makes snowHeads easier to use and to understand, gives better searching, filtering etc. as well as access to 'members only' forums, discounts and deals that U don't even know exist as a 'guest' user. (btw. 50,000+ snowHeads already know all this, making snowHeads the biggest, most active community of snow-heads in the UK, so you'll be in good company)..... When you register, you get our free weekly(-ish) snow report by email. It's rather good and not made up by tourist offices (or people that love the tourist office and want to marry it either)... We don't share your email address with anyone and we never send out any of those cheesy 'message from our partners' emails either. Anyway, snowHeads really is MUCH better when you're logged in - not least because you get to post your own messages complaining about things that annoy you like perhaps this banner which, incidentally, disappears when you log in :-)

@offpisteskiing, I’m not so sure. I’d better consult our new friends Ian McIntosh, Sage Cattabriga-Alosa and Christina Lusti #namedrop

@Markymark29, thanks! Booting/skinning is a lot more motivating with the scenery, which, in my humblest of opinions, surpasses any of the alpine regions I’ve been to. The proximity of the sea and low angle of the sun has a lot to do with it.

@Hurtle, thanks :) Note that half the experience is just being there :sH: Of course, also a shout out to @horizon, @arno, @hewey Costin and Leanne for top banter and better skiing :sH: Epilogue: We’re not. Done. Yet...
Anyway, snowHeads is much more fun if you do.

{IMG2390_3197_right} One final image greeted us as we drove back to the Lofoten Ski Lodge: our line reflected in the fjord in the late afternoon light. EPIC. Once again many thanks to @offpisteskiing for a superb week.

{IMG2390_3196_right} Having topped out, a few of us climbed (in every sense of the word) the final few meters of exposed nevé to the summit. After done high fives, we skied the Couloir and totally killed it, TGR style. Here’s @horizon doing just that. The Couloir was boot deep compacted powder with suitable sloughing. The snow on the face below was some of the best of the trip. The least said about the lowermost 200m the better...

{IMG2390_3195_right} The weather looked ominous and it was warm again. However the TGR team had put in a decent skin track and even left the Couloir untracked (Sage skied down the spine to looker’s left in pic 1: it was insane). Here @horizon and @arno bootpack into the Couloir mouth.

{IMG2390_3194_right} After the TGR film crew guzumped us on Friday, we decided to visit the previous day’s plan A for our final day. The objective being a very aesthetic 40 deg Couloir situated 850m up a very aesthetic peak.

Two challenges today. Temps have warmed up so finding good snow and skiing what we found both required more thinking. The second being that the TGR crew with Ian McIntosh, Sage Cattabriga-Alosa and Christina Lusti wanted to film on our plan A line! They’ve been here all week with a crew of 5 photographers and drone operators - very pleasant company. Fortunately, @offpisteskiing had a very acceptable plan B...

I know you guys have done this trip many times, how often do you get to see such an awesome display of the Northern Lights?? aka can I persuade my wife to let us do a similar trip :) This year is by far the most consistent and spectacular display we’ve seen. We’ve been lucky with a combination of high activity and clear skies. The latter is rarer than the former. You need to persuade your wife to come for as long as possible to get the best chance of seeing them ;)

Reasonably steep and firm snow on the way up with a few ‘consequences’ either side in the event of tripping over a sea eagle meant breaking out the mountain jewellery

Apologies for the lack of updates; conditions have been fantastic all week with blue skies and no wind so that means long days. Add to that camera faff and 3 nights of aurora action and there’s a bit of catching up to do! Here are some tasters from Monday night. Truly extraordinary and by far the finest display I’ve seen...

Thanks all. It was pretty special and last night kicked off even more. Best I’ve seen it up here. I’m sure a rather giddy @horizon will appear at some point with some more... Anyhow, we’ve been doing some skiing, too. @offpisteskiing has once again been doing a superb job of finding the goods. I’ll try to get a couple of shots up before breakfast...watch this space :sH:
