The Norwegian Mountain Code

The Norwegian Mountain Code (Norwegian: fjellvettreglene) is directed towards your safety.​​​​​​​​​​​​​​
  1. Plan your trip and inform others about the route you have selected.
  2. Adapt the planned routes according to ability and conditions.
  3. Pay attention to the weather and the avalanche warnings.
  4. Be prepared for bad weather and frost, even on short trips.
  5. Bring the necessary equipment so you can help yourself and others.
  6. Choose safe routes. Recognize avalanche terrain and unsafe ice.
  7. Use a map and a compass. Always know where you are.
  8. Don't be ashamed to turn around.
  9. Conserve your energy and seek shelter if necessary.

Being strong

Being strong is not
- to run fastest
- to jump longest or lift heaviest
Being strong is not
- always to win
- always to be right or
always knowing best.
Being strong is to
- see the light when it's darkest
- fight for something you believe in
even if you do not have
more powers left
- see the truth in your eyes
even though it
is hard...
