Gausta Skisenter for children

At Gausta Skisenter there are slopes and challenges that fit every age and ski level. Apart from pists graded green (very easy) to black (expert) there are three areas designed for children, two snow parks and ski schools. Not forgetting the Gausta king, of course!

Ski slopes for every age and skill

At Gausta Skisenter there are prepared slopes that fit skiers of all ages and skill. At Gaustablikk every member of the family can choose its favourite slope and still meet at the same lift for another ride. The ski area at Bygget in Hovdestaul, closer to Gaustatoppen, offers slightly flatter slopes – mostly graded green and blue, with great views of Gaustatoppen.

Older children and youths with more skiing experience will find good opportunities for easy off-piste and varied forest skiing.

* Free lift pass for all children

  • Everyone who is going to use the ski resort must have a keycard that makes it possible to pass the turnstile at the lifts. We use keycard from Skidata. You can buy this at the same time as you buy a lift pass, or use a previously purchased keycard from Skidata. Children 0-7 years must also have a keycard that can be ordered * for only 75 NOK.
  • If you have a keycard from before, you charge it at the same time as you book. (Enter the 23-digit number on the back of the card.)
    If you do not already have a keycard, you can buy it online and pick it up at the vending machines outside Gausta ski rental or Hovdestaul.
Children areas

At the big children area at Gaustablikk Høyfjellshotell great fun can be had in a protected area.

Here you find an easy slope for beginners with a button lift and a conveyor belt lift for those just getting started. It’s important to let both lift riding and skiing be a fun game, and to let everybody feel confident and capable, don’t you think?

Meet the Gausta king

In the children’s area you can also find the Royal Castle and the Gausta king, Gausta Skisenter’s own mascot.

Mini park for the children in Lilleputt

This winter, the smallest ski enthusiasts can also unfold in a mini park in Lilleputt. Small jumps and a small rail are arranged in our popular children’s hill, Lilleputt.


At Gausta Skisenter you can find a snow parks featuring jumps, rails and boxes.

Here you’ll find fun challenges for both beginners and experienced action-riders. 

Ski school

Is it time for the youngsters to try skiing for the first time? Or maybe take their skills to the next level?

At the Gausta Skisenter ski school skiers at every age can refine their skills with our experienced teachers. Choose between group lessons in class or private tuition with your own instructor. Prepare for lots of laughs and good times!

In the ski rental at Gaustablikk / Gausta ski rental we supply free ski rental for all children who book a ski school.
