End of season in Hafjell Bikepark
Welcome to this year's autumn holiday in Hafjell Bike Park!
It is the time to put an end to another fantastic season here in Hafjell Bike Park. Autumn time is a beautiful time in Gudbrandsdal valley and great conditions for biking.
For this last week we have put together a program with activities for young and old, races, challenges, and off course a classic end of season party.
The lifts are running for 10 days straight, and this is the program
Daily from Friday 01.10 - Sunday 10.10:
Lifts are running 10.00 - 16.00!
Bike rental and workshop is open 09.30 - 16.30
Big sale of this year's goods at Hafjell Sport 10:00 – 16:00
Collect the bottles: Starting Friday morning (1/10) and the next 9 days there will be 30 water bottles in the area . The aim is to find as many as possible before 9/10. 30 bottles are placed out on bike trails, walking paths, common areas and pretty much wherever in the areas around Hafjell. For every bottle (QR code in the bottle) you scan, you’ll receive a point. The podium for the top 3 searchers will be announced at the prize ceremony on Saturday 9/10 17:00.
You will find the bottles within the circles on this map. The bigger circle, the more bottles you will find within the area
Most runs battle final week: Every year we announce the top 3 riders for the season. It’s usually a tight race until the very end, and our top will step up on the podium and receive prizes and glory on Saturday 9/10 17:00 at the skier’s square
