Bessheim the season 2017
The season at Bessheim in 2017 is from February 10th till October 8th. We are closed from May 21 - June 8. The season at Besseggen is from June 10 - October 8. Remember to book ticket for the boat at www.gjende.no
Road 51 between Beitostølen and Bessheim opens after have been winter closed at March 31. It is cloesed in the night untill may 17. From 20.00-08.00 every night. In the Easter, from April 8-17, the bus "Valdresekspressen" goes to Bessheim every day.
We can offer prepared and marked ski tracks in a variety of terrain from upland forest to mountain tops. We prepare cross-country tracks with snow scooters and track layers from the time we open.
Ice fishing is good in Øvre Sjodalsvatnet Lake, which is right on the doorstep. In good weather, ice fishing is both exciting and pleasant. The lakes around us contain trout.
A walk with snow shoes can be a good alternative if you’d like to do something other than skiing one day. We hire out light and modern snow shoes which are good to use. These shoes are most suited to fairly steep slopes, and it is a good idea to use ski poles together with the shoes.
It is 35 km to Jotunheimen Lemonsjø Alpine Centre, where you will find downhill slopes, half-pipe and many large jumps. The ski lift is 1400 metres long and there is a height difference of 380 metres. There is also a children’s lift, ski hire, snow rafting and a warm room with shop. For prices and opening times, see Lemonsjø Alpinsenter.
All season from June 8 - October 8 it is possible to be hiking Besseggen. Take a lock at www.gjende.no for time table.
