Just sitting on a ferry waiting to head back to the UK after a pretty full on ski season... Stumbled upon this shot thanks to @filmuphigh of skiing under the moody cliffs of Creag Coire na Ciste on Ben Nevis. #BenNevis #Coireoftheblackchestorcoffin #britishmountainguides #earnyourturns Until next year... 🏴󠁧󠁢󠁳󠁣󠁴󠁿 @brit_mt_guides @jottnar @filmuphigh @offpisteperformance @outdoorcapitaluk @nevis_landscape
Tromsø - Oslo - Copenhagen - Geneva today. @brit_mt_guides @flysas
Wild circumnavigating Jiehkkevárri yesterday. Didn’t see anybody for hours - might have been the 5 km of boulder fields! #britishmountainguides @offpisteperformance @brit_mt_guides Thanks for sharing your summits @espennordahl #earnyourturns
Long day with Mrs T, skiing around the Jiehkkevárri Massif. In Holmbukta - Goverdalen - Sløkedalen - Bálggesvárri (1627) - Sydbreen Glacier - Midtbreen Glacier - Tobreeskardet - Vestbreen Glacier and Rypedalsvatnet where the slopes looked ugly. Only one thing for it, a descent of Fornesdalen. 32.9km, 2350m of ascent. That it for the ski season I am off to Stoney! #britishmountainguides #earnyourturns #stoneymiddleton #bestcragintheknownuniverse #bestcragintheworld @offpisteperformance @brit_mt_guides @snicholson76 @duncanmccallum23 @jottnar

Filling in the summit book on ‘Ullstinden’... #britishmountainguides  @offpisteperformance @visittromso @brit_mt_guides
Nice spring snow on the shady north  facing side of ‘Bentsjordtinden’ #britishmountainguides #springsnow #springcorn #offpisteperformance @brit_mt_guides @visittromso @offpisteperformance
Spring has definitely arrived here in #Troms with a rapidly receding snow line. We were alone on ‘Ullstinden’ today, a rare event on this popular summit. #lyngenalps #troms #tromsø #skitotheroad #britishmountainguides @brit_mt_guides @visittromso @offpisteperformance
“Hard charging” @snicholson76 leaving the summit of ‘Buren’ today and heading for the fjord. #ersfjorden #ersfjordbotn #skitothesea #summittosea #hardcharging #offpisteperformance #britishmountainguides @brit_mt_guides @offpisteperformance @visittromso
There is a rich WWII history of the Tromsø area to match the striking peaks and deep fjords. Pictured is a crater from a “Tallboy” bomb from the operation to sink the Tirpitz on Håkøya in 1944.
Sitting out the weather today in Ersfjordbotn in preparation for the Off Piste Performance Kvaløya - Senja week. The good news is that the forecast is improving... 👍 #ersfjorden #ersfjordbotn #kvaløya @offpisteperformance @brit_mt_guides @visittromso
