It was great weather, and the evening lights actually made the weather less of an issue. But most importantly, it was even more fun because my friend Heidi happened to be in town and joined me on the trip. Very nice!
Hammarbybacken is run by the way by the same people who run Åre and a few other nordic ski areas. But Hammarbybacken is right in the middle of the city, it was fun to see the city buildings underneath from the ski slope. And despite the fog, the night lights made the visibility great.
Worth another trip some day. And maybe also visit the other ski hill in Stockholm, Ekholmsnäsbacken that Heidi told me about. That one would also be even closer to my office in Kista.
