NEW! A great day on the slopes including après-ski

Ever dream of a full day of sun and snow followed by a great après-ski atmosphere? You don’t have to fly to the Alps. Rødne, Sauda Ski Center and Beverly Hills Fun Pub have teamed up to create the perfect day. This new package includes boat, bus and lift ticket plus free entry, without queuing, to the popular Beverly Hills Fun Pub, and a free snack pack and one drink. That’s a good deal! After your wonderful day of skiing, the Ski Boat docks at Stavanger’s Skagenkaien wharf. Then just cross the street and walk straight into Beverly for après-ski enjoyment, where the ski racks are waiting, the mood is rising and the hits keep coming.

The Ski Boat only runs when ski conditions are good enough. Check for updates on Facebook-side (in Norwegian) or contact us at or call +47 51 89 52 70.

"Relaxing fast boat"

“Good runs by Rogaland standards. Take the lifts to the top and it’s 6 kilometres down again (or something like that). Very relaxing fast boat there and back from Stavanger.”
