Is my snowboard level good enough for this trip?

You should have done some splitboard tours and be able to make a stable kick turn in different snow conditions. The snow conditions on the Lofoten will vary between spring/powder and packed snow. Daily we will make splitboard tours in between 600 and 1100 vertical meters, and this will be 3 to 6 hours a day. You should be able to ride spring/powder snow up to 40 degrees steepness.


Some of the mountain ridges can be icy, crampons and an ice axe are needed to reach the peak safely. How to attach and use these climbing materials will be explained on the Lofoten, so you do not need any specific experience on how to use them.
