Tamok spring preview with Mikka Hast
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.
