Storbekkhøa is a classic winter trip in Oppdal, with wonderful skiing from Storlidalen valley and through Storbekkdalen valley. At the top you’ll find panoramic views of the mountains in Trollheimen.
The trail starts from the parking lot at Storli, near Storli Gard “Storli farm”. Follow road 70 west from Oppdal towards Sunndalsøra. After about 20 km you will reach Lønset. Turn right, driving past the Lønset church, and continue for 21 km into Storlidalen valley before arriving at Storli. A sign will direct you to the parking lot and there is a small fee for parking.
From the parking lot at Storli, head north up into Storbekkdalen valley, to the right of Veslebekken stream. Once you are past the treeline, continue west across Storbekken stream. Follow the long ridge that leads up to Storbekkhøa. It is not especially steep, with a steady incline. When you reach the steepest part, look west for the trail that leads to the top.
Return along the same route, or follow the ridge down to the pass between Storbekkhøa and Halsbekkhøa before continuing down Storbekkdalen and back to Storli Gard.
