Tuesday has been clear sunny and cold (-8°C) - a beautiful, peaceful day in
Sirdal, with the
only noise coming from the steady hiss of the snow cannons making the slopes ready for the new
Sirdal Fjellheiser has around 22 snow makers of various types, with a flow-rate of 2500 litres
of water per minute, and can produce more than 100
tons of snow per hour
Some slopes will be open at Aalsheia from this weekend (Saturday 15th December), with more slopes
on the Aalsheia side, and slopes on the Tjørhomfjellet / Sirdal Alpint side opening soon,
after a little more snow or good snow-production days.
From around the second weekend in January the new lift and slopes should be open that will join
the two centres together. There will be new runs down from the top of the chairlift, to a new
200 metre button (or tallerken) draglift. From the top of this lift you will have a choice of
going left to two other draglifts on the Ålsheia side, or going down a new slope that
brings you back to the Tjørhomfjellet express chairlift.
Lift passes will be valid for the entire resort, unless you buy a cheaper
"Huldreheim" pass, for the
family-friendly area in Tjørhomfjellet.
With 25 slopes totalling 25 km, and 9 lifts, we will report more on these exciting developments
