Gjuratindryggen (1580 M.ü.S.)

Warning: This tour is suitable either for experts or as a guided tour. Never do this trip alone, if you are unexperienced, or in companion with other unexperienced. The entire area is characterized by challenging and steep terrain, with avalanche danger in prone areas. Gjuratind is a characteristic peak between Isfjorden and Eikesdalen. From north the top looks like a vertical rock wall, from the North east a sharp spear, and from the east like an enormous tower. Recommended time for ski touring is late spring time, starting on foot in green surroundings in the bottom of the Grøvdalen valley. You can start the trip from both Grøvdalen in Isfjorden and from Eikesdalsvatnet. Grøvdalen is the most common place to start, as described here. Ascent begins with a well marked DNT trail at Rabben in Grøvdalen. You drive up a mountain road east of Isfjorden signed Grøvdalen. If the road is closed during winter time after heavy snow falls you must start at Morstøl, two kilometres before Rabben. In late spring you have to put the skis on your backpack and walk about 300 - 400 height metres before facing the snow. Continue heading upwards some kilometres towards Hoemskardet with skies on. From Hoemskaret cross over the glacier called Hoembreen to the south ridge of Juratind. The view from the south ridge is magnificant. Eikesdalsvatnet sparkling 1500 meters below you, in the North east we could get a glimpse of Tustna and the west coast islands, and on a clear day you can even spot the windmills at Smøla. In South the majestic Tafjordfjella rises in a row, in the west white Romsdal Mountain peaks with Trollveggen as the great eyecatcher. Up north Gjuratinden rises in front of you like a giant beast. The glacier is usually safe. From the glacier follow a snow line up to the south ridge before the top of Gjuratind. Here you have to take off your skis. At this point, right under the summit, the skiing trip ends, but some wants to continue the last 150 meters to the top. But even without reaching the top this is a great ski trip with a hilarious descent. To reach the top of Mt Gjuratind (1712 masl) there are two alternative routes depending on snow conditions. If the snow is safe it is recommended to traverse over to the left and cross over to the west ridge. Now you have come to a steep part with easy climbing the last stretch up to the apex. Remember to bring ice axe, climbing rope and safety equipment. This is essential equipment if you plan to reach the top! For dessert you can look forward to a long and nice descent in magnificent surroundings, nearly 1500 m vertical drop. Follow the same way back. Avalanche risk in Romsdalen! The weather circumstances and snow conditions can soon change. Always pay attention to the risk of snow avalanches when planning for your ski touring experience.

Kaldtinden (1115 M.ü.S.)

Very nice alpine ski tour through a great terrain with a fantastic view towards Romsdalsfjorden. Gentle ascent along the prominent east ridge most of the way to the top. Classified as an easy tour. Powder or soft spring snow are ideal conditions for skiing at Kaldtinden. You can also make a detour to the neighbour top; Grøntind. Park the car at Moen farm (private parking), on the north-west side of the river. Follow the tractor road up the hill side, keeping to the left in the beginning. The tractor road goes almost up to the old mountain farm.  From the farm houses follow the ridge to the summit of Kaldtind. Just before the top there is a flank, from here the easiest way to the top is to cross westward over to the left and follow the south ridge up to the top. Back down you can follow the same route, or if the snow conditions are good, ski straight down from the top. Avalanche risk in Romsdalen!

Skjervan (1545 M.ü.S.)

Long and heavy ski tour, from the fjord to the summit of Mt Skjervan, rewarded with more than 1500 vertical meters of hillarious descent. Skjervan is the name of the distinct alpine Ridge that can be seen on the west side of Innfjorden. The summit can be ascended from the east (Innfjorden) as well as the west side (Måndalen). The east side is the easier way up, it only gets steep on the final part to the summit. As a reward, the scenery on top is fantastic. If you ascen from the west, the views are perhaps not as spectacular. on the other hand, when conditions are good you are compensated With a fabulous run down a long, steady slope. [caption id="attachment_5799" align="alignnone" width="650"] Skjervan in Innfjorden[/caption] This route is described from Innfjorden. You can find ohter route options described in the book Ski Touring in Romsdalen. Drive to Innfjorden, and you can park the car at Grande Trevare, or you can try to get a bit further up. Turn the first road to the left after crossing Innfjorden river. After 500 metres when the road makes a bend Down to the river you can see a toll road to the right. Here you can park the car, depending on the snow conditions there might be a possibility to drive further up the toll road. Remember to pay the toll fee. From here begins the ascent through the woods until you get on the track that leads to the the old farm houses, around 500 meters of altitude. Continue further above the treeline. Gradually the landscape opens up more and with views towards Skjervan right in front, and a majestic fjord landscape when you turn around. Follow the easiest way in the terrain, and aim for the north side of the peak at 1270 m elevation. You keep the direction towards the conspicuous rock hammer, which leads up to the north ridge of the mountain. From here the terrain raises smoothly and keep follow the ridge under the apex of the west side, before taking the final steep climb up to the summit at 1545 m. Enjoy the wonderful views from the airy top, facing Molde in northwest and several well-known peaks around us in the south and east. Down again we have two alternative descents. There are more than 1,500 meters skiing from summit to fjords. If the conditions are good, you get the finest descent from east flank of the mountain. However this is more avalanche prone. The steep flanks can accumulate a lot of snow. Especially if the wind has been blowing from the west. If you are uncertain about the conditions you should choose the regular route. It's the same way down as up. It is difficult to ski from the higher parts of the summit. It is very steep.  Avalanche risk in Romsdalen! The weather circumstances and snow conditions can soon change.

Skitouren auf Tarløysa (1086 m.ü.M.)

This is a short ski tour where you get a fantastic view without putting too much effort in climbing height meters.

A little heavy start through the shrubs, but the landscape soon opens up, and you can enjoy the magnificent view over the Romsdal Fjord, Molde town, wild mountain peaks and even to the coast line of the North Sea. Follow the left edge (West direction), up to the edge where you have excellent view down to Herjevatnet Lake. After the first cairn on the top, there is a nice flat stage before the last piece that follows a sharp ridge to the summit.  On top there is a small stone cottage where you can seek shelter if the weather is bad. Warnings - Cornice hazards! Always keep a good distance from the edges and mountain crest. On the way to the top and on top of the mountains there are visible and non-visible snow cornices with unpredictable sizes!
