The Vålådalen Square has varied skiing between the Lunndörren, Vålåstugan and Stensdalen mountain huts. You ski through Vålådalen Nature Reserve, where mountains frame the wide valley’s old-growth forest. A day’s skiing between the huts is 12–16 km.
Each hut has a warden to welcome you, tell you how everything works, and for you to pay, unless you’ve paid in advance. You chop wood, collect water, wash the dishes and clean up after yourself. You can choose to ski with a light rucksack and buy provisions in the huts’ shops, but you should never cut back on safety! Read more on page 78. Lunndörren and Stensdalen also have fantastic saunas.
