The first picture is taken from the blue run down from the chair-lift on the Tjørhomfjellet
side, and the lowest green line shows the new slope down to the new lift and transfer to Aalsheia.
The short red line pointing to the right is the new lift opened today. From the top of this lift
you can either ski down and into the "Ålsheia" area, with 2 lifts available, or
turn right and down a new slope to the bottom of the chairlift (it took 1000 kg of dynamite to
prepare that slope).
The long red line to the right is the "Nyestøl" lift. From here you can take a
slope back down beside the lift (not shown), or take the big hill right down to the bottom of
the Ålsheia resort (not shown). You can now also take a new slope along the ridge and down the new
slope to the Tjørhomfjellet chairlift
The long red line on the left is the new lift put in last season at Ålsheia, which has 2
good slopes back down on either side (one partly shown). There is now an extra slope running
down to the new connector lift, which then gets you to the Tjørhomfjellet chairlift
With a 4-seat express chairlift, 2 T-bar drag-lifts,
6 button (tallerken) drag-lifts, 1 rope-tow

was a good day for it, with many people from Sirdal, the Stavanger region and beyond making the
most of great snow, blue skies and new facilities
The second picture shows the
Huldreheimen family skiing area, on the
There is a beginners slope with rope tow, ideal for learning to ski. There is also a sledging
area, picnic areas, and a drag lift that has a green run back down to the left, or turn right
for the chairlift and the top of the mountain.
There is also a ski hire shop here, with
hot and cold drinks and snacks. The
main cafe is called Isslottet and is
by the bottom of the chairlift. Tjørhomfjellet is situated about 1 km before the RV 45
road from Stavanger and Sandnes reaches Sirdal.

ski hire and
large cafe, plus floodlit
