Skitouring at Sylarna, in the middle of nowhere.
The Sylarna massif is one of the best areas in
Sweden for skitouring. The terrain differs quite a bit from the other
mountains in the area. At Sylarna we find steep corridors, glaciers,
pinacles and exposed ridges. But we allso find large snowfields in
perfect angle wich acumilates a lot of snow.
The Sylarna massif is situated south-west from Åre just at the
norwegian border (actually the summit, Storsylen 1762 m is on the
norwegian side, but don't worry there is no toll-station). To get here
we go together by car to Storulvån, where the road ends. from here
there is 17 km by catski to reach the Sylarna mountainstation.
Once we get to the Sylarna mountainstation we leave everything we won't
need for skiing at the mountainstation and go for our first trip. When
we come back we make dinner toghether and hang around at the station
for some stries before it's time for bed.
Next day we go up early and after breakfast we go for another tour and
after som nice skiing and great adventures we go back to the skicat
wich will take us back to Storulvån before we go back to Åre.
The skiing around Sylarna is a bit more exposed to avalanchehazards
then the mountains around it. To get the most out of the skiing we like
to see that you have been using a tranciever(avalanche becon) before
and if you have one of your own, please practice using it before we go.
should have used avalanche safety equipment before (tranciever, shovel,
probe). If you have'nt we can practice this the night before we go.
