Summer Ski at Gladhopiggen

Hey ski folk we need your help..

We're hoping to spend a couple of days skiing on our september tour of Norway, we're driving north from Bergen. Gladhopiggen sounds like the best possible chance we have of having guaranteed ski conditions, are we wrong?

If we're right, we want accommodation as close to the skiing as posssible. Lom seems to be the nearest town but what is the deal with getting to and from the slopes?

I've only ski'd once in canada so I don't really know much about it or terminology.

Any help greatly appreciated.

If you have a car, you drive towards Juvasshytta from road 55. You don't need to stay overnight at Lom (40 km away), many options. Road up is steep and slow

The summer skiing at Stryn is somewhat more accessible.

Thank you, I've looked at Stryn now and agree it sounds like a go'er. Would you have any recommendations on accommodation? I've viewed Hielle Hotel as It's nearest but are there any jems just around the corner? We want somewhere quite nice as we will be aching after skiing for sure.

I think there is one Videseter hotel next to Stryn ski.

The big hotel in the area is Alexandra in Loen.

Hjelle hotel and Stryn-Skjåk mountains were location for the movie "into the white"

September? September is fall in Norway. The summer ski season is over in late July normally, but it may be extended to mid August:
