Galdhøpiggen Summer Ski Center is a glacial ski resort which lies at 1850 m.a.s.l. at Juvbreen at the foot of Galdhøpiggen in Norway.
The Ski Center is one of very few in Norway that are located on a glacier. The ski lift is secured to the ice, which is in constant movement down towards Juvvatnet. The clear, green glacial water beautifully contrasts the surrounding permafrost landscape.
Galdhøpiggen Summer Ski Center, commonly called "Juvass," is the preferred training arena for many professional teams from all over the world, but during the summer they take a break. Then the slopes are available for you and your friends to explore and enjoy as much as you want.
The resort has a T-bar lift, with capacity of 1200 persons per hour, and one slope which is 1400 meters long with a 350 meter height difference. The ground is well suited to both alpine skiing and snowboarding. It is the highest located ski centre in Scandinavia. The season is usually from late May until October.
In July we're proud to host Norway's greatest summer skiing park, as well as the Field Production Camp - the most exciting skiing week during the the summer. You can rent skiing equipment, helmets and poles with us, at a good price.
If the slopes wear you out we have a cafeteria which seats 120 people, where hot and cold foods and drinks are served, as well as the best baked buns you can find at over 1000 meters above sea level. The lofty height makes the Juvass-bun rise a lot more than usual. Remember to check the weather and driving conditions before coming, and whether or not the road is open at www.gpss.no.
