What stuff do I need to bring?
All campers need to bring their ski/snowboard gear including skis/board,
pools, boots, helmet, and back protection. Gear such as skis, wetsuits and life
jacket for the water ramps is supplied by the organiziation but you need to use
your own ski boots and helmet. If you want to skate, bring your skateboard. If
needed also bring protection for skateboarding. The weather in Folgefonna
can vary a lot. Expect sunny summer days as well as a bit of rain and chilly
weather so make sure to bring clothes for all kinds of conditions. Sheets and
towel is provided at the hostel.
