At the end of March I spent a few days cross-country skiing at the North-Eastern end of Jotunheim in Norway. It was cold, sunny and windy.
Even high up there was lousy thin snow, with plenty of exposed rock, and abundant ice. But stunning views.
On 30 March we'd have needed ice-axes and crampons to reach the 2258m summit of Nautgardstinden (final picture below, with way barred by ice).
