Has anyone been to Hemsedal to ski/snowboard recently? Will be going in early April and wanted to see how things are. Thanks.

There are lots of snow in the mountains all over Norway. There is a general warning against going off-piste on steep slopes because of the risk of avalanches. Conditions in prepared tracks and slopes are the very best.

There has been some relatively cold days in the interior, Hemsedal was down to minus 20 - 25 C during the last days. Now days will be warmer, but still cold nights. 50-100 cm snow.

Thanks for all the info everyone. Is off-piste still safe this time of year if you avoid the steeps?

See reply nr. 1. The risk of avalanches is higher than usual this year due to the large amounts and condition of the snow. The steep slopes close to Hemsedal Ski Center are particularly dangerous, there's been several avalanches earlier this winter. Ask locals about safe areas before going off-piste.
