Sunnmore alps

Hi Everyone,

Just looking for some advice on what season to visit the Sunnmore region in Norway. We would be keen to ski powder but equally would prefer to be able to skin from the outset on a tour. We have plenty experience of conditions much further north in norway, mostly on coastal mountains where almost invariably you are starting at or very near sea level. It seems that in the Sunnmore things are more complicated with some tours starting thousands of feet up and yet the roads maybe not opening till much later in the season.

Also how realistic would it be to travel to more inland colder snow pack areas if conditions on theĀ  coast are not great? Are the distances realistic?

Any advice gratefully accepted

Best regards to all
