Sjåmoen offers 21 kilometers of ski tracks, with 5 kilometers illuminated for night skiing. The illuminated tracks form several looped sections that are located close to the parking area.
For a longer ski trip, continue inwards towards the mountains to Kalvmoneset. Along the way you can enjoy the wonderful view of mountains such as Lukttinden and Brurskanken. Along the way, we recommend bringing hot chocolate, and perhaps making a cozy bonfire and make hot dogs (don’t forget to bring firewood and supplies).
The trails are well-groomed and suitable for skiers of all ages and abilities
