This was our fifth stay as a group at Haugastol for a week of ski touring for a school group from Scotland. As ever our hosts Terje and Eldbjorg went out of their way to make sure this was a great success and all 15 of us could not have had a better time. The accommodation and food were first class and the facilities made available were amazing. Our hosts showed their usual initiative in anticipating our sometimes difficult requirements but they never failed us once. We had few other guests around which helped, as did the perfect weather after Easter. But we've been there when conditions outside were bad and we still enjoyed a very full week of outdoor teaching, thanks to the kind consideration of the family who run it so well.
