Local news about the arena two days before competition start.

Sogndal Freeride is kicking off the Norwegian Freeride Series for 2016 as a 4-star FWQ-event of the season. We are excited to present a freeride competition in a ski town with a passionate freeskiing community. The ongoing season has started off the best possible way, with massive dumps of snow coming in since mid November. This will make for a great base and opening up a lot of possible competition faces. Hopefully the event will be held in perfect blower Sogndal-pow!

Registration is now open

Weather conditions and terrain
As the event will be held in February, weather conditions may be a bit unstable. Due to weather and daylight this time of the year, the starting list is limited to 60 riders in total.

Competition face will be chosen a short time before the event based on the prevailing snow conditions and weather forecast, to ensure safety and good riding conditions. Nevertheless the face will most likely be convex, ranging from 30 to 50 degrees, with cliff bands, rollers and chutes. Previous years the faces have had between 350 m to 600 m of vertical drop.

Sogndalsdalen receives an average of about 3000 mm of precipitation a year and the snowpack is usually between 2 and 4 meters average. Our local ski resort Hodlekve has received between 145 to 450 cm of snow the last three seasons.

About Sogndal and The Sogndalsdalen
Sogndal is a beautiful town located deep inside the Sognefjord in Western Norway, with mountains, glaciers and fjords just outside our door. We have a lot of mountains to choose from and normally there is a lot of good snow which is perfect for hosting the freeride competition. There are no skilifts at the contest venue. Therefore, riders will have to skin (or bootpack) up the mountain. Snowshoes or splitboards are recommended for snowboarders. The competition is part of a big winter mountain sports festival known as Fjellsportfestivalen.

Transportation
You can get to Sogndal in many ways; by air, by land, by sea or by a combination of these. By air it´s preferable to fly to Oslo Airport, Gardermoen (OSL) or Bergen Airport, Flesland (BGO), and directly to Sogndal from there with Wideroe (the only airline flying to Sogndal Airport Haukåsen). By land you can of course either drive or take a bus. For directions you can search in the map above. For bus transportation you can book tickets by www.Nettbuss.no or www.Nor-Way.no. By sea you need to go to Bergen and catch the express boat.
