|Excellent weather. No snow until Sydtopp's glacier peak. Camping near Fjällstation.|
Our trip: First, we went up to Tuolpagorni - this 'Extra peak' is fantastic, more than worthwile, but I recommend to do it before continuing ascent to Kebnekaise - after that, one's maybe too weary. We continued our route up and down Vieranvarri, and reached Kebnekaise Sydtopp without crampons.

|rautavuori||Route Climbed: Winter route via Sinnivaggi (from west) Date Climbed: 25 March 2005|
|Excellent weather. There were almost no clouds at all on the sky when we reached the summit at 18:00. |
We took our skis off near Kaffedalen, attached them to our backpacks and continued walking. As there was lots of soft snow, snow shoes would have been good choice for the final ascent - at least much better than the telemark skiing shoes I had.
As both of us are quite inexperienced downhill skiers, we decided to walk down from the summit back to the place where we took off our skis. From there we skied back to our camp nearby Sälka - some 15 kilometers of skiing.

|Nice weather, nice view!|
Been there again 18.10.07. Summited this time via Västra Leden. Lot of snow and ice on the route. There was no one else around and we got the whole mountain all for ourselves. Back to our tents, we were rewarded with magnificent northern lights!What a great day...
