Location: North 61.17223, East 010.22303 (GPS on summit)
March 26. 2018
Difficulty: YDS class 2
How to get there:
Drive to Forset in Vestre Gausdal. Immediately south of the bridge (across the main
river) turn left (if you just crossed the bridge) and follow the main road south as it
climbs the hillside. Fork left for Rindåsen and follow the road to its end (in winter).
There is parking here
and groomed ski tracks continue. Self serve toll, pay NOK 50 in 2018.
This location is N61.16767, E010.18883, elevation about 750 meter.
Follow the groomed tracks as they climb a long, but gentle hill. Near the top,
the ski tracks fork. Take the left
branch. Follow this track
as it winds its way
with many turns. If the skiing is good, one may short-cut directly towards
the summit point. Following the ski track in a big arc, one gets to location
N61.17148, E010.22273, elevation around 840 meter. Leave the track here (go right)
and locate the highest point
in the first small hill with many good sized trees
We needed some supplies and the weather was not as expected, it was snowing while our
forecast said sun. We drove to the parking and skied along the track until it seemed
to continue the wrong way. We then cut across and located a small top that seemed to
be the highest locally. The trip had taken us 30 minutes. Next, we also visited
the second highest point (according to the map). It was very similar and my GPS, quite
consistently, showed it to be 2 meter lower.
We then returned to the car. the whole
trip about 1:15. Thanks to Pål Jørgen who came along.
