Upper Sirdal near Stavanger Norway
Sirdal is a very popular ski destination just 2 hours drive from
Stavanger on the west coast of Norway. It is the main skiing valley of Vest
Agder county, just east of Stavanger and Rogaland county. The 2 biggest ski senters
and Ålsheia have limked up with a shared lift-pass system,
making one of the largest ski centres in Norway,
with a new lift and slopes to ski from Ålsheia to Tjørhomfjellet and back again.
There is currently very limited hotel accommodation, but a good range of hyttes and apartments is available - or stay in Stavanger.
Shopping is limited - the main food shop is G.P. Tjørhom near Sinnes, where the RV 45 road from Stavanger joins the FV 468 valley road.
In the summer there are roads open over the mountains - Suleskar road to Setesdal and Aust Agder, and the Lysebotn road to Lysefjord (and the ferry back to Stavanger). These roads are closed from around October to May.
