About Blåe Berget
From the top of Blåe Berge you get a fantastic view of several 2000 meter peaks in Jotunheimen. Torfinnstindene looms majestically between Eidsbugarden and Bygdin. Here the snow stays for a long time (May). You can somewhat decide the steepness yourself, but is between 25-35 degrees.
Take the E16 at Hemsing bridge and follow Fv 293 past Åsvang school. Park your car at the start of Slettefjellvegen.
Blåe Berget is one of many fine ski-touring trips at Hensåsen. A small village in Vang. The ascent starts at the beginning of Slettefjellvegen, by the river Rysna. The recommended route to follow takes you first to Slettefjellet before you start the last climb toward Blåe Berget.
There are several options on how to descend from the summit. The recommended route to follow starts in the bowl between Blåe Berget and the 1681-peak. The snow conditions is usually fairly good due to the bowl formation creating a shelter from the wind usually coming from the north-west.
