The chairlift to the summit Nos has been in operation since 1968. Today, the Hovden Ski Centre is a modern and well adapted facility for the whole family. The children's area "Tusseland" has become an eldorado for our youngest guests; and the terrain park "Bukkerittet" is more spectacular than ever! The Hovden Ski Centre has slopes for every skill level, and some of them are floodlit during evening skiing. Our service building has ski rental facilities and a ski repair shop, cafe, cafeteria, after-ski and bistro. Hovden offers a total of 34,2 kilometres of groomed descent, a vertical drop of 420 metres, two 4-seat express lifts, five ski tows and one 2-seat lift. The capacity is 9000 persons per hour.

Great skiing and good facilities, very kids friendly. Big area for kids to play in the snow, and also play area inside with babysitters if parents want to go slalom.

We went in summer, not winter, but who cares, it is a fantastic area to be in at any time of the year. We did several relatively easy walks. Everywhere we went the scenery was fabulous! The hotels, self-catering, shops, restaurants are excellent.
