“Vinternatt i Rondane” (Winternight in the Rondane) – Harald Sohlbergs famous painting, vote Norwegian’s favourite painting, shows off the characteristic blue winter light, especially seen in late December, January & early February – often a period of stable calm weather. With the great natural light, northern lights in the night and well prepared trails, it’s a great time to learn to ski.
Ski trails: Great ski trails start right outside the door and when the weather is good, there’s easy access to the mountains in the north. If the weather is a bit windy or grey, turn southwards to the variety of sheltered trails in the birch forest.
Troll-løypa 170 km from Høvringen in Rondane to Sjusjøen by Lillehammer. One of the most wonderful ski tours in Norway, skiing in an easy mountain terrain from cabin to cabin or hotel to hotel or a mixture of both. This is for experienced skiers, and mountains skis with steel edges are required, as well as knowledge of map and compass. The trail is marked, but not prepared, since this is in the high mountains and the track will blow again in short time. When in local trail nets, parts of the distance might be prepared. But this is a wilderness experienced – and you ski the way skiing was originally used, having skis that bring you forward independent of tracks.
Ski waxing room is available every day.
