 winter tour Funäsdalen 1999/2000

In order to test my self-made arctic sled, we did two shorter tours in the near of Funäsdalen, which is in the border area between Sweden an Norway, south of Åre; quite a popular place to do cross-country or downhill as well. Usually, we do sled-dog tours there but this time we went on snowshoes. The two trips where about 50k's each, with a pit-stop in the hut in Funäsdalen in-between, in order to go for a decent sauna and a tiny beer. Being beginning of the season, the ice on Rogen was not really perfect to go on, no scooter lanes where visible, no walking tracks as well, which made it intense sometimes. The weather was quite nice and not too cold, except a temperature drop to about 40 below for two days. The first trip was to the Rogen (lake), while the second was a tour around Storvigelen, in order to feel some wind (maps to look at are Swedish mountain maps W1 and Z8):
