This is NOT a quiet family weekend in the mountains.

There is an outside festival-style concert on the Saturday with 5 acts (rap, punk rock and others) plus concerts at both the Skarsnuten Hotell and Hemsen nightclub on the Friday and Sunday evenings.

There are also ski and snowboard competitions.
