A couple weeks ago we decided to take a ski bus to Romme to ski for the day. The bus pass includes a ski pass and it’s an economical way to go skiing for the day that’s not a mole hill in Stockholm.
I spent most of the three hour bus ride staring out the window waiting for a blanket of soft snow to cover the landscape. Instead, the further north we went, the less likely for winter wonderland.
Romme, is a small town just 10k south of Borlänge and is in the southern part of Dalarna. Dalarna is one of the northern states and translates to “The Valleys.” People usually tease that the Swedish men who speak the least come from this region.
I also realized when I was on the bus that Happy Hedgehog, the cute store sponsoring the giveaway, was just 10 minutes away from the slopes! We ended up missing each other :( Still, if you haven’t entered the fabulous giveaway, what are you doing reading this article?!
Anyway…here’s to photos!
It turns out that I suck at using the button lift (knapplift – which I renamed to knappgök lift) on skis equally as much as on a snowboard. I also sucked at skiing even though my snowboarding was slightly above mediocre. Therefore, a beer was prescribed to calm my nerves.
