August skiing and accommodation

Hi,

Can anyone report back what the skiing has been like @ Galdhøpiggen in the summer?

Also can you recommend any self-catering options - on a budget.

Thanks,

Caroline

The only convenient place to stay for skiing on the glacier below Galdhøpiggen is Juvasshytta: http://www.juvasshytta.no/ . Accommodations down in the valley may be cheaper, but you will depend on your own wheels to get up and down. You can do the math yourself. There are some buses in summer, but not frequent enough to serve the needs of summer skiers.

Also, be aware that the slope is quite small, length 1400m. altitude difference 350m.

Folgefonn summer ski centre in the Hardanger area near Bergen is another option with lots of options for accommodation within an hour's drive, including campsite cabins. See www.hardangerfjord.com .
