During the winter, normally we have several heavy snowfalls. There is a local record in Tromsø, on April 29th 1997, with the official measurement of 240 centimeter or 2,40 meter. Because of the amounts of snow, we need to shovel a lot. Actually, occasionally we have to shovel 3 times a day. Shoveling snow in our own driveways, may be considered an art. There are specific principles on how to shovel, where to step while you shovel to make sure you prevent the snow from becoming hug snow, and how to plan for a long season of snow shoveling, so that you have space to store also the snow of tomorrow. You will experience the art of shoveling, learn about the different types of snow and the different layers of snow. Being outside in the snow should be a treat, but it is also nice to go inside afterwards. A warm lunch will be served at our local coffeehouse Bryggjentene at the pier. Afterwards we will retur to Radisson Blu We will also introduce you to the wide range of activities we can do in the snow.
