Project C: Tverråknuden

Wind

Best: S –SW perhaps SE.

The SE wind sometimes wraps around the mountain and provides lift.

Description

Tverråknuden is a popular top tour goal that can be approached from the Tomannsbu car park (1hr on skis). The mountain is definitely kiteable with nice terrain up the western slopes and on the eastern flank where the terrain is flatter. Fexible kites with good depower are needed for the ascend due to the high wind differentials.

It pays to walk up at least 1/3 of the mountain side before starting to kite…. On sunny powdery days you will pass lots of jealous sweating top tour skiers…. Remember to greet them (-:

You should be fairly advanced and kite with good friends when you try this spot!
