The family doing winter sports

Mette-Marit went cross country skiing with her mother and Ingrid Alexandra (atleast that is her sleigh) Haakon and Marius went to the slalom hill instead

Thank you Larzen for the great photos and information on their upcoming events. I am a little confused, and this may seem like a stupid question to ask; what exactly is Mette-Marit doing in those photos? What is she trying to put in the bag?

I think it is a pulk.

Basically it is a sort of sled, where you put your baby, or other stuff you need brought with you when you travel by ski. It's also commonly used by those who have travelled in the polar areas, I've been told.

You bind the sled to your waist by the belt hanging onto those long sticks, and can bring the baby with you when you do cross country skiing, even up and down mountainsides. It consists of a frame, and some material protecting the baby against the wind. Of course the babies have to be suitably wrapped up in warm materials from beforehand, as they don't move much in the cold.

I can't see from the pictures whether Mette-Marit is assembling it or taking it apart.

A link I found explaining a bit more: http://www.kidznsnow.com/tahoe/SITE/...0/0/direct?c=1

Thank you very much norwegianne for explaining it, and for the website link. I knew what cross country skiing was, that's why I was a little confused about what Mette-Marit was doing. That Pulk Sled is such a wonderful idea, now that I know what it is. I'm sure I-A had a wonderful time being dragged around while her poor mummy had to do all the work. :)

Se og Hør says its Ingrid, Sverre was not seen outside, they further says that Haakon who was pulling the sled and had the backpack could not keep up with his wife and she had to wait for him several times. They were skiing at Pelleståva at Hafjell. Marius was meanwhile attending slalom school also at Hafjell

I read in another board that in Norway this past weekend there was a big holiday and there were reports about intense traffic conditions. Is this a national holiday or what ? Could anyone enlighten me? Do the above pictures of H and MM show that this was the weekend in ?
Thanks,
Linda 85

The colors choice for Ingrid Alexandra is soooooo boring. Someone should save her from her mother lack of style! Good grief this is a little infant girl so put her in children colors. Something with colors! Anything with colors! Not serious-as-a-pope boring brown winter suit with faded away pinkish anonymous hat!

I love Mette-Marit and I adore Haakon but she wins ab-so-lu-te-ly no medals at style.
