Safer Ski Touring: Norway


Long, cold winters, beautiful scenery and easily accessible
mountains make Norway a paradise for ski touring.
Summits are not as high and spectacular as those in the
Alps or the Rockies, but this does not mean that there are
no risks. An average of five people die annually, due to
avalanches in Norwegian mountains. Most of these
accidents are related to ski touring, and a disproportionate
number of casualties are foreigners.
Avalanches are complex phenomena. However, terrain
risk is relatively easy to assess - if you want to avoid being
caught in an avalanche, the safest method is to stay away
from avalanche terrain. Safer Ski Touring in Norway, first
published in Norwegian in 2016, is finally available in
English and international visitors may now benefit from the
knowledge and tips provided by Norwegian guides,
avalanche experts and skiers. This book will help them find
the safest ski touring routes through the Norwegian winter
landscape, as thousands of Norwegians have done
Safer Ski Touring in Norway gives you the safest routes for
all of the most popular ski touring areas in Norway, from
north to south. The book has in-depth chapters about
iconic areas such as Lyngen, Lofoten, Jotunheimen,
Sunnmørsalpene and Romsdalen, but there are also
routes through less frequented regions such as Sogn,
Stryn, Sunndalsfjella, Narvik and Senja.
Each trip is described in detail, with routes indicated on
both maps and overview photos. In addition to the route
descriptions, the book provides basic information about
avalanches and useful tips on how to use avalanche
forecasts and stay safe and comfortable in the Norwegian
The book is published by the Fri Flyt AS company, the
people behind the skiing magazine Fri Flyt, as well as a
number of guide books and books about avalanches. Their
work on safety in the mountains has received several awards.
