VIDEO: Intense Footage of the First Descent of Ukkonen in The Lyngen Alps, Norway

SnowBrains | BackcountryBackcountry

Some weeks ago we went on a camping trip with big hopes to ski a new line. After we figured we were too late to ski it, we went for another line. Despite skiing a possible first descent we didn’t really get what we came for.

Some days later we went back at 11 pm hoping to get to ski the line we originally had planned. Two hours into the hike we turned around because of bad feelings about it all.

On our third attempt, the conditions really lined up. The snow on the ramp was really good. The rest of the skiing was steep and technical. I’m super stoked to be sharing this one together with Krister Kopala.
