This tour follows groomed tracks. Please check the latest grooming status at http://skisporet.no/oppland/aurdalogkrukloypelag
Drive from Fagernes towards Lenningen and Nythun (12 km). Parking at Nythun Mountain Lodge against a fee (NOK 40,-). The trails start on the other side of the road. Keep to the left uphill towards Tveitastølen. After the ascend you cross a wide, open plateau (approx. 2 km) until you come to a crossing at its other side. Take left here, for another ascend. Keep straigh ahead in teh next to crossings. The tracks climb all the way around the mountain of Smørlifjellet until you reach the highest point of the tour southeast of the summit. In nice weather we recommend a side trip outside the groomed tracks to the summit point (1160 m.a.s.l.).
From the saddle, the tracks turns right, and you can now enjoy a beautiful long downhill run with the mountain of Binnhovdknatten ahead.
In the next crossing, where there’s a nice place for a rest in the sun in nice weather, turn right for a short, but steep ascend and then a fairly steep and curvy, potentially challenging (in hard snow conditions) downhill run to the summer farming area of Pilset. From Pilset towards Nyhtun via Smørlie and Tveitastølen.
We recommend coffee and the delicious home made cinnamon buns at Nythun Mountain Lodge, before you head home.
