An informal silent memorial for Atle Husby and Nikoline Røkenes, who were killed in Saturday’s avalanche, is planned at 9 p.m. Christmas Eve at the barrier on Vei 230 where access is still restricted.

“Feeling like a strong need to think about and remember Nikoline and Atle,” Heidi Jorunn Brun wrote in a post on a Longyearbyen community Facebook page that has received more than 200 “likes” since the evening of Dec. 23.

About Post Author

Mark Sabbatini

I'm a professional transient living on a tiny Norwegian island next door to the North Pole, where once a week (or thereabouts) I pollute our extreme and pristine environment with paper fishwrappers decorated with seemingly random letters that would cause a thousand monkeys with a thousand typewriters to die of humiliation. Such is the wisdom one acquires after more than 25 years in the world's second-least-respected occupation, much of it roaming the seven continents in search of jazz, unrecognizable street food and escorts I f****d with by insisting they give me the platonic tours of their cities promised in their ads. But it turns out this tiny group of islands known as Svalbard is my True Love and, generous contributions from you willing, I'll keep littering until they dig my body out when my climate-change-deformed apartment collapses or they exile my penniless ass because I'm not even worthy of washing your dirty dishes.
