· ski in / ski out hotel 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 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.
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, plus it also serves up some pretty superb food too. Clip your skis on in the morning and you’re away, and 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.
· sauna · free WiFi · restaurant and large modern bar area both with great views of the slope and live music some nights · ski lockers · solarium (extra charge) · fitness room · lift · 37 rooms
for 2 people on Half Board sharing a hotel room with twin beds or double bed, and double sofa bed (max 3 adults) and en suite bathroom with shower, sink and WC. Rooms on upper level floors with better views are available (some with baths) at a supplement. Deluxe Rooms on the highest floor have stunning views over the valley/slopes, bathrobes and L'Occitane bath products – we love these rooms and would recommend paying the extra money for the view and added little luxuries. All rooms have minibar, telephone, satellite/cable, flat screen TV, free WiFi
· extensive hot and cold buffet breakfast · 3 course a la carte evening meal · the food here at Skarsnuten is absolutely top class, we love the restaurant too with its floor to ceiling windows with views down the valley and over the slopes.
•Unspoilt surroundings •Norway’s #1 resort •Nation’s best après
Often hogging the title of Norway's greatest place to ski, this small resort with its trio of peaks has a lot going for it. The cragginess of the mountains here has earned them the nickname of the "Scandinavian Alps" - and it suits them.
