    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 a day at Cerler in the Pyrenees in Northern Spain

    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:
