Kite skiing near Haugastol on Hardangervidda
The area around Haugastol, including Hallingskarvet and west into Hardangervidda is an extremely exposed, fairly flat plateau area, very cold and often windy - quite dangerous - just the place for the rapidly growing sport of kite skiing then, which is sometimes called snowkiting.

RV 7 road crosses Hardangervidda from Hardanger to
Geilo and beyond, and
is frequently closed during the winter. Driving between Duranut in Hordaland
and Haugastol in Buskerud, are many popular places for kite skiing.
This is not a beginners sport - you are likely to be a good skier and have experience with kites. The ski equipment is likely to be Telemark binding.
Drive along RV 7, either from Hardanger at Eidfjord or from Geilo.
