Hovering above a World Cup

21022009812We visited Myrkdalen this weekend to slalom, a two hour drive from Bergen. It was my first visit so I was very curious about the place.

It is known to be most snow-safe place in our area, if the other alpine centers struggle with little amount of snow Myrkdalen will come to the rescue. There were almost 2 meter snow up there.

It was fun hovering above the World Cup event, we got the chance to watch a few runs and we even got the chance to see the two finals. I think an American won but I can’t find the result lists anywhere. We also saw Kari Traa who arranged it, it was awesome to see that she still knows her stuff.

The drive to Myrkdalen were a bit tough, two hours were a bit much but our little one sang most of the trip and had a nice time. She is incredible.
