Winter in Myrkdalen 

Ski touring and cross country skiing
Myrkdalen has great terrain for cross country skiing and ski touring. Årmostlia, which is situated across the road from the ski resort contains many kilometres of groomed tracks. This is a perfect location to excersise or bring your kids skiing. A 5 km loop is illuminated, so you can go skiing even after it`s dark. 

The mountain plateau at Vikafjellet has many options for cross country skiing, A common starting point is at the parking lot by the county border between Hordaland and Sogn og Fjordane. Please note that there are no groomed tracks in this area – here you make your own tracks in the pristine mountain terrain.

Off-piste and backcountry skiing
There are many beautiful mountains around Myrkdalen and often you can start right from your doorstep. The most accessible mountain is Finnbunuten (1358 m) – as you can gain height by taking the Kari Traa lift up and walk to the top. On the other side of the valley is Bjørndalskamben (1402 m) – the highest mountain in Myrkdalen with amazing views.

If you walk a little from the ski lifts, you can find untouched snow several days after last snowfall. Just remember: While off-piste skiing you are responsible for yourself and your friends. Be especially careful on days when the avalanche danger is moderate and high. There is a training area for avalanche transceivers at the ski resort, feel free to use it! And do not hesitate to contact the ski patrol if there is an avalanche situation. 

Did you know that Myrkdalen is only 30 minutes away from the famous Nærøy Fjord? There are many great mountains with stunning views to explore in this area.
