Progress in deep snow is the most common. Also there are snowmobile tracks with packed snow and B roads cleaned by machine due that there is trafic on it. So you ski and walk.
Following is the gear we recommend to do the Lapland Extreme Challenge.
- Forest skis: For deep snow forest skis are the best. There are two kinds of forest skis,
thin and long and short and wide. Thin forest skis can be more than 2 meters long.
- Also splitboard is ok.
- If you don't know about the wax, is recommendable to use seal skins for the forest skis
and extra seal skin for the OAC skins, just in case.
- Pulka: As short and small possible. For us the right is 130 cm long and 40 cm wide.
Brands: Fjellpulken, Acapulka. Snowsled. We recommend poles dragging system.
