About

Gausta Ski Center offers 35 slopes, several children's areas and parks with jumps and rails for twintip and snowboarders. Here are challenges for all levels, night skiing and many nice places to take a break. Barbecue areas, a heating room, restaurants, freshly baked pizza and a prep machine that has been converted into a food truck can be found next to the slopes.

Free lift pass for children under 8 years *
Children are especially welcome at Gausta. Lift tickets are free until the child has reached the age of 8 (but all children who ride the lift, must have a keycard). If you book a group lesson at Gausta Ski and Snowboard School, ski rental for children between 0-7 years is also included. Ski school is offered for all ages, and with a destinguished play and children's area, it is safe to learn to swing and ride a lift yourself. Besides, the mascot is happy to visit!

* Keycard from Skidata will be added

All equipment can be rented or purchased on site
Gausta offers both the sports shop Sport 1 and ski rental. In the service building at Skipsheisen vis-à-vis Gaustablikk Høyfjellshotell, you can buy lift passes and rent ski equipment or via our website gausta.com. Choose from different skis, snowboards or randonee equipment. Do you need clothes, warm mittens or cool sunglasses? No problem, everything can be bought right here.

Ski school for young and old
Many great skiers have taken their first plow turns on Gausta. Here you will find a ski school with trained educators and groups for different ages. Nothing is so wonderful as watching the pride and confidence rise in children when they manage to drive downhill and even take the lift up themselves. Adults are also welcome. How about refining the technique with a knowledgeable instructor. Welcome to book your ski lesson in the ski rental! This winter, Gausta Ski & Snowboard School offers several new products for skiers of all levels and ages. Gausta Top Skiers and Topp tour with a guide are aimed at the experienced skier, while "Ski adventure" with a private ski instructor offers experiences for the whole family.

Snow-sure and many altitude meters on Gausta
With its height, the first snow of winter often falls on Gausta and stays until May. For the past three years, Gausta has made major investments in a new snow production facility - which makes the conditions optimal for building slopes for a long and wonderful ski season!

Scandinavia's toughest off-piste?
At Gausta there is not only a child-friendly, large and well-groomed ski center. Here you will also find adventure, wilderness and advanced off-piste right next door. For those who love randonee, there are several exciting mountains here, including the iconic Gaustatoppen.

With its 1883 meters above sea level, Gaustatoppen is no ordinary mountain peak. It is a unique top experience. The deep and steep runs down the mountain invite to challenges of the highest class and all skiing is at your own risk. Guide can be booked in advance. With good access to snow, it is possible to drive off-piste all the way from the top down to Rjukan - a total drop of 1650 meters.

Cross-country skiing with a view
Gausta delivers high-class cross-country skiing. The beginner tracks are perfect the first time, but the experienced can develop their skills and enjoy panoramic views of the mountains. As darkness approaches, a 3-kilometer-long light trail awaits. And every morning you can follow the prep machine via GPS and be the first on the newly prepared tracks.
