    Competing tourism information in Otta/Rondane

    by Saagar Written Jul 27, 2006

    Northern Gudbrandsdalen area is locally known for lack of intra-municipal collaboration and quarrelsome - or to be politically correct - vocal and argumentative people. For tourists, the main outcome is a confusion over what body is the official tourism authority and lack of complete information. The "warring" parties are carving up their respective territories...
    Sel-Rondane Reiselivslag is a private outfit that covers the northern Gudbrandsdal areas of Sel, Otta and the Rondane Mountains. Otta Turistkontor AS is the official body, with an office and information centre at the railwaystation at Otta. These two boduies have limited if any cooperation. Chance is that you will not be given helpful info about what the other group is offering, so cock an eye to the info you get from either bodies and be extra inquisitive here... Geographical info, transport info etc should still be quite ok.

    If you’re not the person who are just longing to feel a rush of adrenalin, you should follow some basic rules.
    When skiiing in unknown places you should listen to the avalanches news, weather rapport and talk to locals before making the trip.
    It’s more likely to be a avalance when extreme snowfall about 20 cm or more,it blows
    Avoid stream valleys
    listen for the boom in the snow...

    feel safe, follow the mountain ridge

    You should always have a spade with you, in case you have to dig your friends up from the snow+ an avalanche transceiver

    Useful link :
    but what if you end up i the middle of a advalance?
    If you see it comming, you should try to ski diagonally

    If you’re not eable to do that, get lose of you skies and poles.
    try to make a pocket to breath in the middle of the snow, be pasient and wait until they find you.
