So, three years of studying in Narvik is over, and here's my three most memorable ski experiences during that time, plus some extra. These are not my most memorable moments because of great snow and skiing, but mostly because these trips required a lot of planning, and there was so many factors in place. Especially skiing The Rombak S and The Sleeping Queen required everything to be spotless, because both lines has an absolute no fall zone in the upper part. Skiing the line we skied at The Sleeping Queen took me many years to complete. For about five days the week before the hike we were kind of on standby everyday, just waiting for the conditions to be perfect..
First out, Rombaks S'en / The Rombak S. The majestic mountain seen east of Narvik city, skiing the north-east face. The actual name of the mountin is Rombakstøtta, but we usually say Tøttatoppen.
Second out, Stetindrenna / The Stetind Couloir (Norways national mountain). The couloir's on the north face.
Third out, Den Sovende Dronning / The Sleeping Queen. The north-east face seen south of Narvik city. It might be the face most freeriders in Narvik grow up thinking "one day", but it should not be.. It's definitely not a line for everyone to ski, and most skiers should stay away from it.
Fun fact: The main street in Narvik is called The Kings Street (Kongens Gate). The street is facing the direction of The Sleeping Queen. The actual name of the mountain is Skjomtinden, but seen from Narvik it looks like the face of a person laying down sleeping.
Thanks to Joakim Norum for long distance footage at "Den Sovende Dronning" / "The Sleeping Queen".
