The Sunnmore alps is famous for its untouched powder snow mountains and peaks. There are great numbers of natural pistes, offering possibilities and options for a wide range of skiers. Many of the most spectacular places are available only by boat, and that’s why we sail.
When designing your ski and sail trip we focus on safety, quality snow, terrain, and ski culture.
Experience level on this trip is medium.
This trip takes some experience from Randonnée / skiing, but you do not need to be advanced. If you do have a lot of experience it is only positive, and you will be able to challenge yourself. Those with more experience often want to run steeper and do more meters up and down in one day.
As organizers we try to keep the level as equal as we can, so that we can choose mountains according to the level of the group. If you are in doubt this is the right trip for you, you are welcome to contact us at any time - even you are beginner or experienced.
Traveling with skis and sails will get you close to nature, wildlife and untouched powder. The weather and conditions can change quickly. For this reason, we only use UIAGM certified ski guides from the company Uteguiden, who have the best local knowledge of the area. This way we can offer a flexible program, with the best knowledge, as well as ensuring safety.
The trip start and ends in Aalesund. Vigra airport (AES) is about 15 minutes by car from Aalesund. Vigra have direct flight from example Oslo, London and Amsterdam by SAS & KLM. If you are travelling from a city at the coastline or wish to extend your journey with a day or two we reccomend that you check out Hurtigruten who offer mini cruises in Norway.
What is really Ski and Sail/boat?
It is a concept where we use our sailboats as a floating chalet; we sail to the foot of the mountains and start our skiing right on the beach. By boat we are flexible and can move from place to place, and choose hillsides, faces and our areas according to the present conditions we have. Ski & Sail/boat is a concept done by Italian and French alpinists since early 1990ies, and a concept that Norwegians recently has started to appreciate.
Changes in the program
You may see the program as a plan that we adjust according to weather and conditions. If we are in a place without snow, we just sail to where there is more snow! With the sailboat we are flexible so we can find the best snow. Onboard we have with us a dinghy for trips ashore, we have fishing gear for the cod, and we have what we need to make a bonfire and have fun ashore.
