Good times at Gausta – 6 places to rest your legs

A festive après-ski, a cup of coffee in the winter sun or a friendly game of shuffleboard. Sometimes, a break is the best part of skiing. We have listed 6 places where you can rest those tired legs and have some fun at Gausta.


Den Lykkelige Sportsmann – always a good choice

Den Lykkelige Sportsmann (“the happy sportsman”), that’s the name of Gausta’s popular bar and après-ski in the eastern part of Gausta Skisenter. Situated right on the slope, overlooking Gaustatoppen, it’s designed for feelgood moments. Just get out of those skis, get a seat and you’ll be a very happy sportsman indeed.

Good times – here we come!

The Loft is the name of the brand new Gausta après-ski concept. On the top floor above Gausta Food Court, you will find this cozy bar with a whole lotta shakin’ goin’ on.  With great drafts on tap, dartboards, and screens showing winter sports there is always a good time to be had at the Loft. But just wait till the live music kicks off at the weekends.

Bygget – the place to be in Hovdestaul

Situated right at the bottom of the slope at Hovdestaul, entering Bygget is very much like crossing the finish line. Finally! Come in for lunch, for a hot drink or for summing up a great day of skiing over dinner and a few drinks. For the season 2019/2020, Bygget is run by a new enthusiastic team promising an interesting new menu! Don’t miss it.


Try shuffleboard at Gaustablikk

Challenge your friends or family in a game of shuffleboard – the fun game where touch and smoothness beats strength. Very much like curling on a table your job is to hit the other team’s stones and protect your own. Welcome to book your table at the Gaustablikk reception desk

Don’t go running on empty – visit our food truck

Take a break, get a treat. Whenever the good mood wobbles it’s a good idea to sneak by the Gausta food truck. Housed in a pistmachine and parked on the slope it’s the perfect pitstop for a hot chocolate or a snack.

Don’t drink and drive!

Let the Gaustablikk Tesla take you safely back and forth. When you reserve a table for dinner at Gaustablikk Høyfjellshotell – private transport is included free of charge.  If you decide to take a walk, don’t forget to wear something reflective when it’s dark for better visibility.
