Sauda skisenter at Svandalen

Sauda skisenter is at Svandalen, about 8 kilometers from Sauda, in the Ryfylke area of west Norway, the northern part of Rogaland county.
It is special for several reasons: you get a great view of Saudafjord (the sea) from the slopes, the top lift goes up to 850m, it is 6 kilometers down by the longest (easiest) slopes, and you can come here for the day by boat from Stavanger or bus from Haugesund.

Sauda has wide and long slopes

beginners area was new for 2007 There are two T-bar lifts from the facilities at the bottom, another T-bar lift that takes you further up the hill to Smalanuten, and another button (tallerken) lift up to Tjuanutane, at 850 metres.
Don't be fooled by the few lifts - the scale of this ski resort is BIG - with long runs and wide slopes, and with big plans for the future.
New for 2007 is a beginners area with button lift, just beside the ski-hire shop.
