THE TRIP

Me and a friend from school wanted a nice ski experience so we looked at a map for a while. We wanted to see more of Jämtland and we decided to ski the triangle. We started from Storulvån and skied to Blåhammaren the first day. The weather was really nice and we had great fun and even bigger smiles all day. Blåhammaren has a really nice sauna and we stayed there for a bit before eating. The second day we decided to leave the triangle and ski to Storeriksvollen on the Norwegian side. We had a really nice cabin (DNT key needed) and soon had a fire going. Before long we fell asleep on the couch for a while. Later we decided to ski around the houses and ended up doing a summit attempt nearby. Later on in the evening we were standing on the top looking out over the white alps. We stayed there for a while before going down Snowroller (Swedish movie) style. The third day we crossed over the lake and skied towards Sylarna. The small cabin near the peak Fiskåhöjden (half way) made a perfect shelter from the wind and I had a small nap there before skiing the final stretch to Sylarna. We had really nice weather everyday but today we had wind and we were pretty cold the last hour to Sylarna. After Sylarna we went north back to Storulvån and completed the “triangle”. Overall we had a great time..

ABOUT THE TRIANGLE

This is a classic Swedish hiking trail, between the mountain stations at Storulvån, Sylarna and Blåhammaren. Food can be purchased at the mountain stations, Blåhammaren and Storulvån have first-rate restaurants as well. We did a detour and visited Storeriksvollen in Norway.

(The red line is our detour to Storeriksvollen and the black line is Jämtland Triangle)

Blåhammaren

If you walk this triangle and start in Storulvån you can ask them if it’s high season and therefor book you stay and food in advance to Blåhammaren. You can also email them or book at there website. The food and sauna is well worth a visit.

History

There is a lot of history in the surroundings. In Storulvån you can see and read more about the Carolean Death March. Sylarna Mountain Station is STF’s first station, 1897. Ask the personal about there history; one exempel could be the one about the big fire in 1980 and the stuff they saved.
