Sometimes they can ski before they properly can walk. Just like in Austria. It is amazing how soon the can handle skiing. The kids learn so fast. My younger brother was only 4 years old when we fist went skiing but in no time he was coming down the mountain like a bat out of hell.

Cheers, Erik

The best time to learn as there is no fear or self consciousness. Great shot!

Hi Billy, I'm pleased you like this one. I have tried x-country skiing. Every time I looked at the view I fell over, and I had ski poles ;-)

Thank you Eva, I am happy that you liked this one :)))

Greetings, Amelia

Dear JaninaI am languishing in the UK, waiting for flights back to Norway, also this site was inaccessible to me when I got stuck with Google, so all of my comments, as 'Amelia Scott', have been deleted. I am not unhappy about that as i have my site back again, but now I am even further behind with replies. many thanks my dear friend for your lovely compliment. The Norwegians in this region of southwest Norway had a wonderful winter - the best since 1951, and there was a lot of skiing and skating on the frozen lakes. When I get back, everything will be thawed out once more :)))

Hello dear Hazel, this is actually a very large lake, and everyone really enjoyed the snowy winter this year. We, Adrian and myself, were in fact 'walking on water' with boots and 'yaktrax' to stop us from slipping over. I'm so pleased that you like this wee Norwegian, who will have a claim to fame for being photographed skiing on the Stokka Lake, and being featured on Panoramio. I hope it gets lots of views in order to make it a prominenet photo :)))) Glad you got the laughs from Nick :)))

Warmest greetings to my 2 dear friends, Amelia

Hello Gabe, yep! They did so well in the Vancouver Olympics. We watched it every day, and felt very patriotic. For a very underpopulated country, under 5 million, they certainly had the edge in the x-country skiing :)))) Good morning John, I am really pleased that you liked this one. All the children were so confident on skis, unlike me :)))

Warm greetings, Amelia

A lovely shot! And what to do if they have snow a half of year?

ION BEZERGHEANU / … on October 25, 2010

True ;)

Marianne on December 13, 2010

And this is the proof!

Amelia Royan on December 14, 2010

Hello dear Olga, ION and Marianne, all I can say is that I'm glad that I am not a Norwegian female ;)

The young Norwegians seem to be able to ski almost as soon as they can walk. I have tried this - it's not easy :)

It seems that the skis can be removed dear Olga, so ordinary walking is recommended in the summertime :)

Warm greetings, Amelia
