You certainly could see the mountains!! Too bad you didn't have skis. Daunting indeed.
Incredible! Cool that they have a marked "safe" trail.
We really lucked out! There are lots of crevasses up there. Lots of mountaineers went off-trail to climb Breithorn. We only saw two skiers leaving the trail with technical gear but they asked us for directions so I didn't feel confident about them!
I am totally wowed by all of this...the mountain running vacay sounds like a bucket list item for me!
No kidding! You guys have it figured out!
I'm looking forward to trying the stage race format. So far it seems very social. Runners recognize the other runners in town by their packs, shoes and BMI, and the next thing you know, you're sharing a meal with new friends! (This would violate Norwegian etiquette, according to Cristina.)
