Welcome to Riksgränsen on Mothers Day!

Time for us in the Ski Patrol to write our last snow report for the season. With a mixture of sadness over the long months before we open again and a bit of happines to change to other footwear for the summer.

After yesterday’s fine afternoon, Mother nature chooses to give us fog and rain on the last day. Continued soft pistes that can be a bit messy and uneven as the machinists have had a tough job to piste in these soft conditions. In some places, stones are lurking underneath the snowpack. Ride with caution!

We in the mountains have already taken down some barriers and markings from some pistes, this job will continue during the day as we begin to prepare for the season closing. The pistes Smygarn, Lingon and Skimastern are not groomed. The easiest way down to the hotel from the top station is via Blåbär and Apelsinklyftan.

Banked Slalom competition has been completed and the competition area has been in Snobben. Note that the track is still standing and in poor visibility it can be difficult to see the banks. Ride with caution!

At the bottom of the frontside of the mountain, an excavator has dug a large ditch on both sides of the valley station, so that the train tracks will not be washed away by the melt water.

Temp valley: +5
Temp top: +4
Wind valley: Light 1-7 m/s SO
Wind top: Light 1-7 m/s SO

Avalanche information:

Virtually no refreezing is occuring in the snowpack during the nights. All cornices and steep terrain can be sensitive to trigger. Some cracks in the snowpack are present on the frontside and on some formations.
Note that low risk is not the same as no risk – always be cautious in extreme terrain like cornices and steep sections, especially on the front side of the mountain.

Vassivarvet 3,4 km: Will not be groomed for the rest of the season due to the melting snowpack.
