    An experience that most would deem absolutely frightening, was one which elicited smiles and laughs from Andreas Fransson and his friend, Morgan Sahlén. In Andreas’ words: “Last spring the Salén brothers and myself went to the Lyngen Alps in the north of Norway for three weeks of ski touring and ski mountaineering. We were extremely lucky with the conditions and even though we had to turn around a lot, we managed to pull off six first descents and experience the magic of this amazing place among friends.”
