Norwegian ski patroller Linda Haaland shows her B.C. counterpart and pro skiers around her home hill while on location filming Warren Miller’s Line of Descent.
A Norwegian ski patroller meets up with her B.C. counterpart for an adventure on her home mountain and the backcountry beyond.
COUNTERCLOCKWISE FROM TOP RIGHT: Store Lenangstinden shoots 4,060 feet above sea level, making for an impressive sight from below; from the top of a peak to the edge of the sea, former Olympic ski racer Kaylin Richardson gets a face full thanks to conditions rivaling those you’d find in Utah, Richardson’s home state; Kevin Giffin, Richardson, and Linda Haaland explore; Marcus Caston (far right), local Lyngen Adventure guides, and B.C. patroller Giffin wait out a storm (one of many during the trip) in an old lighthouse. “I’m happy it decided to clear up because it would be such a shame to come all this way and not see a mountain,” Caston Ca on says. sa
Warren Miller athlete Kaylin Richardson earned her turns after a 3,000-foot climb in the Lyngen Alps. “There are few things that make me feel more alive than dropping onto a ridge and all I see is mountains and water.”
