With a major investment in significantly expanded snow production, a widening of slopes and new signage, Gausta Skisenter is investing heavily ahead of the winter season. Two snow parks with jumps and rails are also among the plans for winter. Now we’re just waiting for the cold weather.
Last year the two ski systems Gaustablikk Skisenter and Gaustatoppen Skisenter became one. During the year, major investments have been carried out to further improve connections between the western and eastern parts of Gausta Skisenter.
– We’ve expanded the Svarten slope below the Gaustaekspressen chairlift so that it starts right from the top. We’ve widened Linken, slope 19, which runs from Svarten to the slopes in Brendstaul, so that it’s easier and nicer to ski, says Bjørn Tverberg, centre manager at Gausta Skisenter.
What’s more, the snow production at Gausta Skisenter has been significantly increased. A full 50 million kroner has been invested in new fully automated equipment from TechnoAlpin. Together with a new pumping station for the Hovdestaul area, this represents a big increase in capacity.
– If we get the right cold, wind and weather conditions, we can get snow in much of the system in a far shorter time than before, says Tverberg.
Two different snow parks are also planned for adventure lovers. As in previous years, there will be a blue park in Hovdestaul, and in the centre area there will be a park with slightly higher elements at Hotellbacken.
– To make it easier to find the parks and get from one end to the other, we’re also putting up new, clearer signage, says Bjørn.
