The winter season at Gausta was short this year. Following the the Coronavirus pandemic all facilities on the mountains were closed immediately on March 13. Most have remained closed since then, and it’s long been uncertain whether Gausta would open again for the summer or not.

Now, it’s been decided – there will be a Gausta summer this year as well. And it’s not that far away. On the first of June Gaustablikk Høyfjellshotell and its facilities open for the summer. Also opening in June are Gaustabanen and Gaustatoppen Turisthytte.
