Overview
Details

Vestre Glidbjørgsnuten is located between Bykle and Hovden, east of the main road RV9. Although not that spectacular from a distance, the descent has many fun surprises and some very fine stretches. The challenging part is finding the straight lines through the forest. In some sections you have to make quick turns, and good skiing technique is therefore required.

When you are ready to climb the mountain, we advise you to follow the local road for a short distance after the barrier until you see an opening in the forest. Try to find the most open terrain and imagine that you will follow this track during the descent.

Vestre Glidbjørgsnuten is a good option in rough weather as most of the track goes through forest. However, the 1201-metre summit is exposed to wind and weather. Regarding avalanche risk, the vegetation makes the terrain relatively safe, and after a heavy snowfall you may enjoy good powder skiing.
