Description

Edland/Haukeli has a good network of well-groomed ski tracks, mainly to the south of the Kjela river, which flows through the area. All the tracks are wide enough to allow room for both skating and conventional skiing. Large parts of the track are lit every evening throughout the winter to 22:00.

The tracks run through forest terrain and offer a variety of challenges to skiers of all abilities. A good starting point is the Sundflaten ski centre, which has slalom and jump hills and a clubhouse (I.L. Rein). Turn off highway E134 at Velemoen Camping. Alternatively you can start from Edland school/Storeguthallen, where the shower
facilities, indoor swimming pool, sauna and fitness suite are open on Monday, Wednesday, Friday and Saturday evenings.

The flood lit track in Edland is 5 km (the longest stretch) and is groomed mainly during the week for skiing competions/practice. In the weekends the ski tracks in Vågslid are prioritized. For information about the ski tracks in Vågslid, call Haukelifjell Skisenter tel +47 46 42 44 44 or see www.skiinfo.no or www.visithaukeli.org
