Sauda ski area
(skisenter) is a scenic and snow-rich slalom arena located on a mountain above Saudasjøen
only about 5 kilometers from Sauda
city center, in Norway
. The base of Sauda Skisenter, formerly known as Svandalen
Skisenter, is at an altitude of about 360 meters above sea level. Visitors can reach 1100 meters by taking the T-bar lifts to the top. Surrounding mountains reach up to 1500 meters.
Family and youth recreational facility
Sauda Skisenter is an enticing family venue that offers extreme skiing peaks and a terrain park, with multiple half-pipes, big jumps, rails, and rolls with a skier-cross course. Sauda Skisenter was built in 1968, has a large base lodge, and offers ski/snowboard/telemark and other equipment rentals.
Facilities and major plans
Recently, Sauda Skisenter proposed to spend $2,000,000 on a new chairlift which would greatly encourage a lot of extra tourism. Ski-in and -out mountain cabins were built in 2002 in abundance around the ski area. The cabins are expected to rise heavily in value due to the expansion in the mountain village.
Popular places to stay are Sauda Fjord Hotel
(built 1915), Kløver Hotel, and many more appealing hotels.
Notable alpine racers and other athletes come from Sauda
