How to get there:
From Bergen, drive E-16 towards Voss, but exit (right) at Dale. Continue through Dale and up the narrow (spectacular) road that runs up Bergsdalen. About 30 years ago, this was the main Hwy. connecting Bergen to Oslo, very hard to believe when driving there today.

Pass the first lake and the small power plant at Fosse, continue in a big left bend around the small hill with elevation 519m. Locate parking (there is an old open gate there) on your left in the next right bend on the road. This is location N60.57592, E005.89968, elevation about 425 meter.
Route description:
Continue along the road about 250 meter, then take the small road/path that exits right and connects to the bridge ahead. Ski up the nice slope on Revanjuken, stay to the left side at the upper (slightly steeper) part. There is a cairn placed around 760 meter of elevation.
From here, continue on very gentle terrain directly towards Storafjellet. There is a rock/cairn indicating a good passage across the small valley/trench that separates the mountain from Revanjuken. Finally, ascend on easy terrain to the summit.
The forecast was good and I started early from Bergen. I started at 0750 and had a very nice ski, arriving at the summit by 1050. My trip then continued to Storafjellet. at 1100. The skiing was nice and I came across a small group of reindeer before crossing the distinct ravine forming the upper part of the Møyadalen valley. I was on the summit by 1055 and had a short rest in the superb weather, no wind and blue sky. Leaving shortly after 1105, I had a nice ski back to my car, arriving shortly before 12 noon.
Since it was still early, I decided to also visit Såta before returning home.
