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 passes and ski rentals for all children age 0-7

At the ski rental at Gaustablikk and Hovdestaul all children up to 8 years old can borrow ski equipment and helmet free of charge. The lift pass is free too (0-7 years).

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. On Saturdays at 2 pm, all children are welcome to meet the Gausta king and join his own patrol. All children are given their own patrol number and can help guard the castle or do other fun activities with the Gausta king and his assistants. And, of course, everyone gets a diploma to bring home as a proof that they have helped the Gausta king guard the kingdom!


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!
