Gravset ski stadium

Gravset is the largest exit point for cross-country skiing. Here there is a large parking lot (parking fee), cafe in weekends and holidays, heated room and toilet open daily and a good starting point for different circular trails in different degrees of difficulty and lengths: classic, ski play area and light trails (until 10 pm). Here, artificial snow is made as soon as it is cold enough in the autumn, which may offer early skiing from November. See webcam.

Artificial snow for securing early skis

Artificial snow is produced at Gravset ski arena (750m + 1 km + 2 km), as soon as it is cold enough to produce snow. At Gravset and in Tottenskogen there are light trails until 10/11 pm.
