About Klybersteinberget

To get to Klebersteinberget you drive from Beito, past Grønolen Fjellgard and the ski resort. Turn left at the junction and head towards Sølvsmia 10-15 meters until you see the sign showing the path toward Klebersteinberget, on the east side of Sauebekken. Follow the marking with white bricks up the lush birch hillside. In a mountainside in Kjøsalia, soapstone has been taken out for hundreds of years. The material for most of the soapstone fireplaces in Valdres is most probably from this place. First in the 1800s, ovensbecame more commonly used as heatsources and soapstone to build fireplaces was no longer so relevant. But because the stone is so soft that it can both be sawed, felled, planed and cut with a sharp tool, it could be used for other things as well, like tombstones, tubs, weights in clocks, molds for metal. From ancient times on soapstone was used for pots and pans because the stone withstood the heat. You can still see remnants of the operation of the quarry which was discontinued in 1918 because it was not profitable anymore.
