IW. Home to find more snow and freezing temperatures, though on a slightly different scale. However, wasn't willing to risk cycling so opted for tarmac pounding instead. Glad I didn't cycle, lots of very slippery pavements, but running was grand - shame the route isn't more interesting as the running itself is fine.

HFW after P2C and dinner. Thought I was moving a bit quicker than this morning but the clock says otherwise (I did eat a lot though). Most of the ice gone, biking should be on the books tomorrow. Legs starting to suffer from the tarmac by the end.

A treat for out last ski, over to Sjusjoen to watch Birkebeinerne. Saw the first couple of hundred through (surprisingly spread out) before heading on a loop to the north-east (minus John and Ollie). Another stunning sunny day, but body in need of a bit of a rest, especially the arms.

Sunny ski in the hills (or rather lack of) to the north. Early start as a bit of a drive, also a bit cool, even without wind chill it didn't get above -10 all day. However it was gloriously sunny and the wind was actually hardly noticeable. Very easy terrain on freshly groomed trails with next to no one else around. Little bonus loop at the end to head to a summit, from which the long distance views were amazing. Top day skiing.

Completely different today, snowed most of the day with a bitingly cold wind. great route though, over to Sjusjoen down-hill slope from Nordseter. Serious wind-chill in places but all the more memorable for it. Also stunning snow as you could see the shape of every crystal. Sjusjoen cafe not a patch on Nordseter, being both more expensive (£24 for a pizza) and not as good cake.
Left the group once we got back to the cars and skied back to the cabin on my own. Snow stopped by now and in the shelter of the wind. Really enjoyed this.
