    Here are some ski pictures from my season so far

    I spent 3 weeks driving and traveling around Georgia. Skied Gudauri, Bakaruani, Tetnuldi, Hatsvaldi and also did some splitboarding.

    Skied at Mount Hermon, Israel in February which turned out to be an amazing powder day.

    3 weeks in georgia cost me and my wife around 1300 euro. its the cheapest country in the world to go skiing. lift tickets are $10 in brand new resorts with brand new lifts.
    norway cost 700 euro on a special deal i found on facebook.
    i dont live in australia so flights are cheap.

    Looks like you had some poor weather in Lyngen, which is a shame as that place is soo awesome and some really cool terrain so easy to access... if the weather is good. I was there late April and early May, but lucked upon 10 days of good weather and then a couple of fizzlers at the end. But everyone we met was commenting that it's regularly windy, bad weather etc.

    But you certainly got around this winter. :thumbs:
