There currently excists a proposal concerning an indoor cross-country track for year round use. The trail will deliver a stable temperature of -3 degrees, and is planned to have 800 meters of windows with lovely views over the mountains in Hemsedal. The length of 2600 meters will contribute to raising the bar, and marking it as the world’s longest indoor ski tunnel.
The starting point and finish line will be integrated as part of Skigaarden, which will make Skigaarden a natural meeting point for all ski enthusiasts, all year round. The facility is designed so that parking and other necessary functions will be closely linked to the use of the skitunnel.
The skitunnel is designed by Hermod Bjørkestøl (NSF), a world authority in the field of cross-country design slopes. The trail will offer great variety with opportunities to train moderate, and in addition find usable interval slopes.
