The terrain is slightly hilly. On very windy days, you are advised to ski in the forest rather than the mountains. Indeed, some of the forest routes are known as 'bad weather tracks'.

There is a network of tracks from Bergsjø to Hevjanåsen and Ål ski centre at the south side. At west you can follow the tracks to Iungsdalshytta and Myrland, wich is a DNT (The Norwegian Tourist association) marked route.
With Leveldåsen as a starting point you have well-developed networks of tracks close to the majestically peaks in the mountains of Ål.
To the west the slopes stretches towards the bare mountain Reineskarvet and Bergsjøområdet.
On a day with bad weather the tracks that goes in easterly direction against Votndalsåsen and Liatoppen ski centre and Torpo-Oppheimsåsen are good alternatives.
The route from Myrland towards Bergsjø, Votndalsåsen and on to Torpoåsen is known as the northern Hallingdal route.
