Alicia sent me a new beanie to add to my collection of Trailspace swag and it's now my new favorite (until the next hat comes along...). Here's a selfie from Daltind in the Lyngen Alps a few weeks ago.

And while we're at it here's one with two TS hats on top of Skjorta, a ways SW of Trondheim:

As always, I'm hoping to keep the ski season going until my birthday in early June...

I am also always happy to see pictures from Norway too, BigRed! It is on my list of places I really want to go.

This weekend I was talking to friends and found out they're going to Norway for two weeks this summer with their kids and will hiking hut-to-hut for much of that time. I thought that sounded fantastic.

Now is a good time because the dollar is relatively strong against the krone, but unfortunately it is still pretty expensive. But kids below a certain age can stay at huts for free, and "youths" up to age 26 usually get half price, so it starts to make sense for families. I think huts have been instrumental in giving our kids access to and positive attitudes towards the outdoors.

Our hut2hut website is offline -- got contaminated by some bot or something so we will have to revive it using a new server.

It's great that you have the hut system in such a great place to get outside. But, more importantly, it's great that your family has used and appreciated it.

Here's one more from yesterday, my 62nd birthday, on Breitind above Romsdalen. I had a beautiful birthday weekend -- two days of cloudless weather, ascents and ski descents of two beautiful mountains with my daughter Molly, her boyfriend Audun, friend Christophe and his son Niels. Most likely my last ski days of the season, it's time to gear up for hiking and canoeing -- oh, and a half marathon next weekend!
