Kart over skiløypene rundt Skillevollen og Båsmofjellet Skisporet / Norgeskart

At Skillevollen, you’ll find a ski resort, ice rink, groomed ski tracks, and a biathlon arena. There are many ski trails to choose from, with varying levels of difficulty. Here’s something for the whole family.

The Skjerpeløypa is approximately 17 kilometers long and winds through beautiful hiking terrain over Båsmofjellet. The trip starts at the top of the slalom slope, and it’s possible to buy a one-time ticket for the ski lift to make the start of the journey easier. The trail passes by Stortjønna, which is a nice and popular spot to stop for a picnic and make a fire.

The illuminated ski trail consists of several loops closer to the parking lot. It traverses gently rolling terrain and is a very popular training area for both competitive skiers and recreational skiers.
