Dark Days Photo Challenge is a photo competition in Sogndal, Norway.  The second edition of Dark Days Photo Challenge will be hosted at UTEPLASSEN  January 13th - 17th 2016. Our idea is to showcase backcountry-skiing in the best possible way by inviting the best photographers and skiers for a photo-showdown.

The Location


Sogndal, Norway

Sogndal is a small town by the Sognefjord, on the west coast of Norway. Thanks to the surrounding mountains and glaciers the Sogndal-valley gets loads of snow each winter! During the last years the valley has become famous for the great snow, beautiful mountains and endless opportunities for skiing.

skiing in northern-Europe.
 

The venue for Dark Days is UTEPLASSEN, a smal ski lodge and afterski pub situated in Sogndalsdalen, twenty minutes from Sogndal city-centre. Here you find great skiing from the doorstep! Read more about UTEPLASSEN here!
