Narvikfjellet FreerideDate: Wednesday 24 mar 2021 - Monday 31 May 2021 Show map
The top of Narvikfjellet is the start of seemingly endless ski touring terrain and some of the best list-assisted off-piste skiing/snowboarding in Norway. This season, you can explore this terrain with an experienced and certified ACMG Ski Guide.
Ride Narvikfjellet's legendary back-bowl lines like Mørkholla or Tredjeholla with a local ACMG Ski Guide! Going with a certified ski guide gives you access to first-hand avalanche information and the best snow of the day - and access to his favourite lines. Lifts take you to 1000 m, from where some runs are accessible - but the better lines require some walking up (20-30 min) to reach the north and south facing runs of Tredjetoppen (1272 m). Ski bindings with walking function or splitboards are preferable.
Note this tour requires avalanche safety gear, and a helmet is strongly recommended. If you need to rent gear, please let us know.
Note: This program requires that upper chair lift to work. Should weather/winds prevent the lift from running, you have the option of switching to the ski touring program.
