Skiing options

In Myrkdalen there are some cross country skiing tracks if you want to do that - if you do not have skis you have two options:( a) there is equipment you can borrow in the printer room. It is first come first serve - return it after we get back!( b) You can rent skis in Myrkdalen.

Myrkdalen also has downhill skiing right by the hotel - bring your own downhill equipment / snowboard! If you do not have equipment, you can rent it at the hotel. You will have to pay for the lift pass yourself, but we do get 20% discount as hotel guests.

**If there is enough interest we will arrange for skiing/telemark/snowboard instructors (and cover the expenses for the instructor, you still have to pay for lift passes and your own equipment). If you are interested in a skiing instructor, please send me:-- The type of skis you want instruction in ( Downhill Skis / Snowboard / Telemark )

-- Your level: Begineer, Intermediate, Expert

For each of the 9 possibilities, if there are 4 or more takers we will arrange an instructor in this category. If you would like it - please respond what you would like instruction in by Friday the 10'th of February.
