Think safety when choosing a line down the mountain. Our suggestions are just recommendations. Read the terrain carefully, and consider the current snow and weather conditions. You are responsible for your own safety.
Before setting out you should gather information about snow and weather conditions. Local tourist information offices, ski schools and ski rentals will help you. For the Hovden area, map sheets describing the various randonee routes have been prepared, and these are available at the tourist information office.
Choose between numerous pistes of varying difficulty, check out the terrain parks and the floodlit pistes. There are also great opportunities for free boarding, some through the forest.
Hovden, located 850 metres above sea level at the top of the Setesdal valley, guarantees a long snow season. Also in Brokke and Evje offers excellent cross-country trails, including floodlit trails.
