"Gummy forest"

Trees everywhere, close together. Not just straight up and down, but slanting, sideways, bent, twisted, and seemingly randomly placed.

To the untrained eye of a forest skier, the gummy forest may appear as complete chaos of trunks, bushes, and branches. However, for those who can see the forest beyond the gaps between the trees, it's a paradise for powder skiing – as long as you're quick to hit the slopes after snowfall.

The first encounter with a classic Norwegian off-piste in dense birch forest can be tough for many. Skis may feel unusually heavy, or the board too long when facing slightly steep terrain with densely packed small Norwegian dwarf birch. There are definitely other places where it's easier to navigate down on skis or a board.


Food and beer in the heart of the slopes.
