Location - where is Skarsnuten Apartments

· ski in / ski out apartments perched on the side of the slopes overlooking the valley · 500m from the nearest ski lift · ski school meeting point is 2km from the hotel so first timers will need to get the bus to the base · resort centre 6kms (downhill) but a free shuttle bus runs during the day until 8-9pm most nights and thanks to the night skiing you can get to and from the base to the Skarsnuten Hotel/Apartments via ski lifts and slopes (you’ll need to ski/snowboard) until 8:30pm Tuesday to Friday · once lifts/bus stops you need a taxi (extra cost, approx £25) to get to and from the hotel if you stay out late in Hemsedal base village or town

Please note:
due to the location of this hotel we don’t recommend it for complete beginners, ski school is at the base area which will mean using the shuttle bur or taxi (extra cost, approx £25) to get to the base area. It’s an easy run down from the hotel for intermediates but not complete beginners.

Overview - apartment description - Skarsnuten Apartments description

This is such a special place to stay - it really feels like you are in a luxury, secluded ski lodge. And that isn’t too far from the truth. Perched at the top of the ski area the views from this hotel are incredible. The best place to watch the sunset over the mountains is in the restaurant with its floor-to-ceiling windows, and where it also serves up some pretty superb food. Clip your skis on in the morning and you’re away, plus you can ski right back to the door. You can’t beat that for ski-in/ski-out access and thanks to night-skiing running four times a week you can ski back to the hotel until 8:30pm most nights. Getting to and from the village is a doddle using the shuttle bus but you’ll be pushed to leave this little mountain oasis
