Birkebeiner Rennet

Excellent snow conditions on the Birken track

“The whole track of 54 km is already good covered with snow” says Tor Skraastad, Track Manager at Birken. Most of it is groomed with some icy parts on the first and the last 5 km, but powder snow on the rest of track”. Although this winter will not go into record books as one of the coldest, the skiing conditions in Sjusjøen have been constantly good since early November and the skiing is now just excellent. The weather forecasts indicate more snow to come also down in the valleys of Rena and Lillehammer. In other words, quite ready already for Birken in March!

Entry still available for foreign skiers and Birken will this year also offer accommodation and entry, with packages of 2 or 5 days. For more infos, please look at
