Isfjorden.com – Skiing to Blånebba

Mt. Blånebba (1322 mas) is one of many great ski-mountains in Isfjorden and Romsdal. The view from the summit is epic.

Eastwards you see straight into Vengetind, Romsdalshorn, Trollveggen and down to the Romsdalen Valley. Turn around, and you see the Romsdalsfjord and all the way out to the Atlantic Ocean.

September 2020: Romsdalen and Mt. Blånebba is one of Lonely Planets 7 favourite Ski Resorts in Europe.

NOTE! Before you ski in the Romsdal Mountains, please check the Avalanche Forecast for Romsdal

 

Hiking with fjord view by Fjordtours

Mt. Blånebba (1320m)

Start at the parking at Vengedalssetra in Vengedalen, Isfjorden. Same starting point as for the Romsdalseggen Hike.

Follow the same route as the Romsdalseggen Hike to the mountain ridge of Romsdalseggen, where you have a great view down to the Romsdalen Valley and the surrounding mountains. Continue the skiing towards east, uphill towards Mt. Blånebba. The last 100 meters can be demanding depending on the snow conditions, take care.

We recommend to ski down the same route as described when skiing upwards. It is steep skiing back down from the Romsdalseggen Ridge down to Jamnåbotn, then there are more gentle and fun skiing down back to the parking at Vengedalen.

NOTE! The snow can be blown to a large Snow Cornice (Snøskavl) in north direction at the top-ridge. Due to this, never ski further than you can see rocks/stones on the north ridge on Romsdalseggen and towards the summit of Blånebba. Never ski/walk close towards the edge where you don´t know if you have the mountain or just a snow cornice under your feet.
