Arrival in Sjusjoen

FasterSkierMarch 12, 2011

We flew from Seattle on Friday morning, and arrived in Sjusjoen on Saturday afternoon.

It was over 24 hours of traveling and Margaret & I are both excited and tired.

The bad news is that the skis and one clothing bag did not arrive with us.   Hopefully it will arrive tomorrow. There will be plenty to do for one day without the skis if necessary.

Sjusjoen is a small village about 15km from Lillehammer, and it is absolutely packed with cross country skiers!

Being further north, it immediately struck me that the sky looks like our home in the middle of January, even though it’s mid-March here now.    The sun still seems pretty low in the sky.

The snow is terrific here – cold hardwax conditions – Rode blue multigrade, I’d guess.

More later, and photos, too.
