Norwegian Powder Ski Paradise in one Ski Pass

Norwegian Powder Skiing gets easier to explore – as five small Powder Resorts in the northern part of the Fjord Norway region launch a new ski pass – giving access to 25 lifts and 53 slopes in the Sunnmore region.
The Alpepass lift-pass will be available in the 2008-09 winter season, joining the ski resorts of Strandafjellet Skisenter, Sunnmørsalpane Skiarena Fjellseter, Stordal Alpinsenter, Stryn Skisenter and Harpefossen Skisenter with up to 800m of vertical drop. You'll find the very essentials of skiing: good powder snow, interesting terrain and great people - and basically nothing else. "Almost every season we are rated in the top 10 list on average snowfall in Europe" says Strandafjellet Manager Hans Anders Rindhølen.
Those who read subtitles in big international ski movies may recognize places such as Strandafjellet, Stryn and Fjellsetra (the "Get Lucky" ski movie from Field Productions contains a bonus track from Strandafjellet). The Sunnmøre Alps mountain range is also amazing for ski touring and winter climbing, and some of the best winter surf in Europe is only two hours away at Hoddevika, Stadlandet.
