Park in focus
For those who want to do a bit more than just ski alpine slopes - we’ve also got four parks, where there are challenges for everyone.

This specific park is open for all, full of fun lines and creative elements.
Tasty food and drinks
A deep love for gastronomy and use of local ingredients defines the kitchen at Myrkdalen Hotel. All dishes are made from scratch and most of the ingredients are delivered from local farmers. At the hotel you will find three different restaurants with à la carte, fondue and home made pizza, as well as three cafés for people who want to grab a quick bite to eat and get back onto the slopes.
In the forest below the Storhaug express lift, lies ‘Tråfjosen’. This converted wooden barn used to be home to milking cows dating back hundreds of years.
Inside the cattle barn, the stalls are still intact, with beautiful slate that separates one from the other. In the south end of the barn, a module has been installed where four adults can sleep. The window creates a three-dimensional feeling; this is the only thing that indicates that the old wooden barn has changed and gives a modern look to the south facing facade. This is truly a unique, charming and modern stay - that you can experience all year round.
