Avoiding Oslo VM 2011 subway chaos

2 Mar

Recent newspaper headlines here in Oslo screamed “They Treat Sheep Better!”

There have been serious transport problems getting up to Holmenkollen for the VM 2011. But there is a better way–by ski. With positive temperatures now forecast, I think I’ll be taking skate skis up. The only trail near me wide enough for skating goes up the West side of Sognsvann. That route starts with a hefty climb. But, as one colleague put it, walking up on your hands might be easier than taking Oslo’s “T-bane” metro.
