Alaska aint the only place to be in april. Jones team rider Mikka Hast has posted up for the spring in Tamok, Norway. Heres his first dispatch from this off-the-radar freeride mecca in northern Norway:

I came to the Tamok Valley ten days ago to spend the rest of the season here filming, riding, camping and exploring new terrain. The area got hit by a big storm cycle so we have been waiting for the weather to clear up. Snow seems to be pretty stable and the coverage is the best I have ever seen here! We have had to settle for tree riding so far but the alpine terrain is looking good when the high pressure rolls in. High hopes for a long and good spring time! – Miikka Hast

Settle for the trees? Looks pretty buttery…Photo By Aadne Olsrud.

Blower pow in April! No surprise in Tamok. Latitude of Tamok – 63.39°N. Latitude of Anchorage, Alaska – 61°13′N. Photo by Teemu Lahtinen.
