About

American transplanted to Trondheim, Norway, after many years in New Hampshire and Vermont (and adventures in parts west, New Zealand, Australia, Nepal, more).

Backcountry skiing is what I like/do best, also hiking, sea kayaking, mountain biking where appropriate.

I'll never run out of mountains here in Norway. The weather can be iffy, the snow conditions "variable", but when the stars line up I've done some of the best tours and descents of my life here. An additional virtue: It's uncrowded (probably at least partly because of one of the drawbacks, travel in Norway is expensive). We have had huts here entirely to ourselves for up to three nights during Norway's reputedly busy Easter week...
