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.”
