In the forests you can get along with less gear and it does not have to have the quality needed for mountain hiking. The same applies to sheltered areas along the coast. Spring, summer and autumn can have winter weather in the mountains, so extra warm clothing is essential.
Pack light and don't take too much!
WINTER PACKING LIST
Right clothing and equipment are essential for successful skiing in the Norwegian mountains.
It does not have to be the latest fashion, but it should protect you against weather and wind. The innermost layer should keep the skin dry and provide insulation. Choose wool garments that fits snugly. The intermediate layer provides insulation and transport moisture away from the body. They may be made of wool or fleece. The outer garments must provide wind and moisture protection.
The following list is a suggestion of what you should bring on an organized ski tour from cabin to cabin. Pack light and don’t take too much!
In winter the prefered mode (only way) of transport is what we in Norway call "fjellski", basicly wide cross-country skiis with steel edges. Some prefer a backpack, some pack their gear in a sled.
- Long underwear (wool)
- Thick sweater (wool/fleece)
- Wool socks
- Windproof mountain hooded jacket or anorak
- Mountain ski trousers or wind proof trousers
- Woollen gloves and windproof mittens
- Skis (minimum 50 mm wide, with steel edges)
- Strong mountain ski poles with substantial baskets
- Sturdy ski boots (leather) size up
- Ski wax, scraper
Protection against weather
- Sun glasses and goggles
- Extra pair of socks
- Extra pair of gloves/mittens

PS! Wool or polypropylene is used for summer & winter. Cotton clothes is absolutly prohibited. Cotton does not have any thermal properties when wet. It can lead to hypothermia and frostbite easily. You could get by with cotton during the summer, but it is not a good type of material.
Ski boots should alway be 1 to 1,5 size bigger during winter. More room for thick socks and for the toes to move around. To tight boots leads easily to frostbite. Rule is loose fitting clothes traps air and warm air isolates.
Some gear can be rented for free from Tromsø Kommune TURBO
