A weekend of skiing, snow bath and eating

A friend of mine asked if our eldest one and I wanted to join them to Kvamskogen and spend the weekend there. He had access to one of their company huts and the weather reports were inviting, I couldn’t decline an offer like that.

We drove off early Friday and home on Sunday – we had a beautiful weekend, a bit windy and it snowed a lot but our target was to have a good time and relax. We went skiing, the kids played a lot in the snow, played games, ate a lot and… we took a snow bath! 🙂 Even the kids did it, we had a blast. The drive home was a fun experience (watch video at the end of the post).

I can’t post photos of the kids (out of respect etc) but here am I taking a snow bath, it was cold at the moment but when we got in our bodies felt extremely refreshed. John was supposed to send me a photo of him snow bathing but I haven’t received it yet. hmm… 🙂

View out the window when snowing and the neighbor hut, it kept snowing and snowing

Skiing was fun but it snowed a lot and the wind picked up during the day, it was difficult to see anything when we were at the top.

Food! 🙂

Driving home was a fun experience (watch video at the bottom)

    I think I’ll skip taking a snow bath the next time I go skiing

      Hi Sara thanks for visiting me! You should really try it, it felt incredible after we got inside. I see you’re located at a place very similar our weather. 🙂

    Great photos. They made everything seem cozy, even though it must have been freezing out.

    Sikkert en flott helg, nå skal jeg ta på meg brodder og kjøre ut på vinterveier:)

    That’s one snowy journey! I notice that in Norway people manage to drive in snow in ordinary cars, whereas in Britain we have huge 4x4s for driving around our towns and then skidding off the road at the first few snowflakes!
