How to get there:
The natural starting point is Kvamsskogen on the highway
between Bergen and the Hardanger fjord. One can park
at the downhill ski area Gåsabotnen, or about 3.5 km further west
at Jonshøgdi. Route description:
Ski passing the lower part of the alpine ski area and continue a gentle
climb up the valley to the Mødalsseter.
(If starting from Jonshøgdi then the
route cuts across and joins the "standard
route" just below the final hills leading up to Mødalsseter.)
From here continue in
the valley aiming for the saddle between the small, but distinct
Såta and the larger mountain on the right. From the saddle climb
steeply up (to the right), this is the so-called "Stueveggen"
(wall of the living room). Continue over and across the higher ridges and
descend slightly into a nice basin before the main summit. The normal
ski trail climbs on the left (south) side and then gains the main summit
in a large arc to the right. Comments:
I have skied this mountain several times with both my boys. If the
weather is nice, then this is certainly a classic ski tour for anybody
living in the Bergen area.
