Four top trips that will give you long lasting ski memories!

Ansokhornet (888moh) - The small peak with the amazing view

Ansokhornet is a great peak for those who have not been on many top trips, but also for those who have been on mant top trips and got a lot of experience and wants a shorter trip with amazing view. The view from Ansokhornet is phenomenal. From the top, you will see across the fjord to Stranda. With Strandafjellet, Slogen, Brekketind and Sunnmørsalpene roaming in the backround, inwards to the mighty Sunnylvsfjord, with its steep mountain sides, and all the way to Tafjord to the east. Simply a magnificent panorama. 

Getting to Ansokhornet: 

Ansokhornet is located on the other side of the fjord from Stranda. You will have to start the trip by taking. the ferry across the fjord. If you want, it is possible to get to the top straight from the ferry dock, but then you have to be prepared to carry your skies hundreds of metres high. We recommend taking the car. You have to drivetowards Liabygda, 200 metres after Ringsettunnelse, you have to take to the right and up towards the farm Ansok. Here you will eventually enter a dirt road, and approx. 300 metres after Grinda, there is a parking lot on the right side of the road. (If it is difficult to drive, we recommend to park down by the factory where you take off from the main road)

The trip follows the summer route from the mentioned parking lot, first trough the spruce forest at Haslevikmyra, then along the tractor road and the red-marked pine trees up to the birch forest. At the tree line you will come to Ansoksætra and will see the top ahead of you. Already here you will see something out of the ordinary and it is a nice place to have a break. From Sætra and up to the top the terrain is moderate landslide. Even if the terrain is not appreciably... steep, it is important to use common sense and make goode decisions based on the landslide forcast. 

Estimated time for the trip: from the parking lot at Haslevikmyra it is about 3 hours to the top

Required equipment: avalanche equipment and regular winter packing

Grøtet (1519moh) - The Storfjord's finest panoramic view and 1000 altitude meters with wonderful skiing 

There are few mountaintops that beats the view at Grøtetm 1519 metres above sea level. Sitting at top of Grøtet with good friends and feel the sun heat in your face, while enjoying the view to Ålesund and the ocean in the west, in north to? and in south to Lodalskåpa is an experience that will be remembered long after the ski season is over. 

Getting to Grøtet: 

Grøtet is located in Eidsdal. You have to take the ferry from Stranda to Liabygda. Then follow the signs in direction Geiranger, to Linge ferry dock. From Linge, the ferry will take you to Eidsdal. Then you continue to follow the signs to Geiranger. After 6 km, you turn to the right with the sign direction Hesthaug/Kilsti, and follow the road to the parking lot at Kilsti. The most common way to walk up to Grøtet is from Kilsti (here is the best parking lot). In addition, you can also go from Rønneberg. But then you have to inquire with the farm people at Rønneberg regarding to parking.

From Kilsti, there is a sign to Kilstivatnet. Depending on if it is winter or summer time, you can choose if would like to walk on ice over the water, or if you want. to go around the water to Kilstisætra. From here, there is a trip that goes further to Kilstiheia. This area can be susceptible to landslides, so it is advisable to plan your route in conservative terrain from Kilstisætra, and continue around and up the back of the "heia". Then you are able to avoid the steepest terrain.

From Rønneberg, the hike goes in a more relaxed terrain. You get a smooth, longer and even backhill all the way. Just before you reach the top, it gets a bit steeper. 

Late spring we recommend t0 go up and down via Kilsti, as the snow is further north. You are able to experience nice skiing at Grøtet until late may. 

Both from Kilsti and Rønneberg, you will experience up to 30 degrees steep, and some places even steepes. As always, you need to check the avalanche conditions, and make good assessments along the way. 

Estimated time: About 5 hours to the top

Required equipment: Avalanche equipment and regular winter packing

Kvitegga (1454moh)  - Downhill towards Geirangerfjorden

The Geirangerfjord is the main icon of Norwegian fjords. Endless of visitors enjoy the view of the world famous fjord every year. But there are only a few who gets to experience the pleasure of being 1454 metres above the world-famous fjord. Then dancing down the mountain side in bliss. Kvitegga has been one of the most hidden (and wonderful) places, but an increasing number of top-tour enthusiast is discovering this place every winter. SImply a summit and a trip you must experience!

Getting to Kvitegga: 

From Stranda, you drive towards RV 60 Hellesylt / Stryn. After about 20 minutes, you will arrive at a view point called Ljøen, where you can park at the parking lot. The view to the Geirangerfjord is already magnificent here. May be the finest place in Norway to put on your ski. 

Then you follow the Trondhjemske postvei to Ljøsætra, which is a nice place to take a break on the way up. There are not many Sæter's with as good location as Ljøsætra!

Further from Ljøsætra, you follow "postveien" a few more hundred metres, then you go into Ljødalen with. the view of the top 1454 metres high, which many refer to as Kvitegga. If you do not want to walk straight up, you can walk on the back to the right of the valley. 

Kvitegga itself is a little further on the back than the peak 1454, and is 1489 metres high. But the best skiing area is from the peak that is 1454 and back to Ljøsætra. 

Estimated time: about 4 hours to the top

Required equipment: avalanche equipment and regular winter packing

Heimste (1336moh) og Fremste Blåhorn (1478moh) - Two local classics.

Heimste and Fremste Blåhorn are two local classics. Fremste Blåhorn is the most common destionation, but you can visit both peaks on the same trip. From both Blåhorn's, you get a wonderful view to Stranda and Liabygda with all surrounding mountains. Especially from Fremste Blåhorn you get that majestic view of the mountains on the other side of the Sunnylvsfjord even closer...Grøtet, Smogehornet, Tretindenibba. And in the backround, you will see the mighty Skorene. Who just as well could have been in Switzerland as in Sunnmøre.

If you like to go on mountainski, you can go to Blåhorna via Dregetua and Vardnakken. This is a magnificent, but long mountainskiing. But we will describe the tour where you go from Fjørstad "in the valley". 

Getting to Blåhorna:

From Stranda you follow RV 60 towards Hellesylt and Stryn. After about 12 km, you will arrive at Fjørstad, where you take to the left and park by the old school house, which is now Grendahus. Remember to bring coins to pay for the parking. At the entrance of the Grendahus, there is a postbox and deposit envelopes for payment. 

At the fence above Grendahuset, there is a sign pointing up to Blåhorna. The tour starts with a walk over the open pasture and you follow the red marking through the birch forest. After a couple of hundred meters, you are past the forest border, then you follow the ridge further up to Heimfjørstadsætra. Many people have a small break here, with something to drink and a chocolate break at Sætra. Already here, you got a nice view down to Strandadalen towards Strandafjellet and over to the Sunnmøre alps to the west. 

From Sætra, you follow the ridge for about 150-200 meters in height, before crossing the river in the direction of Blåhorna. It is important to take into account prevailing snow conditions when crossing the river. After crossing the river, you will aims at the intersection between Blåhorna. When you get up to .. you can choose between the tops. If you plan to go on bothm we recommend going to Heimste first, because you got a longer continous descent from Fremste Blåhorn. 

On both peaks, you must be very careful and not step on the large shovels that hang to the east. It can be tempting for many to take a few steps out to get even better view towards the fjord, but do not do it as it is very risky. 

Estimated time spent from Grendahuset at Fjørstad: approx 4-5 hours to the top of Fremste Blåhorn.   Calculate a bit shorther time to Heimste. 

Required equipment: avalanche equipment and regular winter packing

Safety

The peaks mentioned are not particulary steep. But on all, except the Ansokhorn, you will at some point of the trip be affected by terrain up to 30 degrees, or steeper. It is important that you become well acquainted with prevailing snow conditions. Always check varsom.no before going on a trip. In addition, it is advisable to download NGI's app bratt.no, then you can both be oriented on the map, and see the steepness of the trip in the color codes of NGI. A memorable summit tour already starts when you plan it.
