Hemsedal in 2 weeks time with no car - doable?

Hi everyone,

I'm looking at going snowboarding at Hemsedal for the first week of December. I've found accomodation at the slopes which looks good, and I can get flights at a reasonable price to Oslo.

I don't drive, and have found out that I can get a train from Oslo to Gol, and then a bus from Gol to Hemsedal.

There seems to be confusion about when this connecting bus runs, with some people saying its only after the 21st Dec. It also seems there could be two buses - a year round local bus and a late december onward ski bus. Does anyone have knowledge/advice on this?

I'd also need to use taxis to get from the slopes to Helsedal village (about 2 miles). Are these easy to come by in early season?

cheers

Matt

There are taxis in Hemsedal, but as that is only a village do not expect to see a taxi on the street any time (you should order one).

"Ski" is the name of a municipality near Oslo, it is not a forum about skiing.
