Ski and snowboard enthusiasts from around the world:

We have been proud to provide you with free access to snow reports, resort guides and more, and we are beyond grateful for your readership and contributions to our community over the years.

Unfortunately given the changing media landscape, Mountain News Corporation has experienced financial declines in recent years. With additional economic challenges from the COVID-19 pandemic now facing our business, it is not financially viable to continue operating.

Mountain News Corporation and our OnTheSnow and Skiinfo websites will be shutting down. We will explore the possibility of selling, partnering, or contributing assets to another media outlet if there is an opportunity to allow for a consistent or enhanced online experience. For inquiries about Mountain News Corporation, please email Feedback_OTS@mountainnews.com.

We want to thank our loyal employees for their tireless work over the years to bring great information to all of you. We take comfort knowing that our collective passion for the sport of skiing and snowboarding will certainly live on.

We’ll see you on the mountain.

Husbakken

The traditional tenants farm of Husbakken is a perfect base for tranquil relaxation or expeditions into the wilderness. Tie your hiking shoes and take off from the kitchen door towards lakes, valleys and peaks. If you like, we’ll guide you to the best spots. Back in the 120 year old wooden house you make a fire in the old stove, sit back in the rocking chair and enjoy the peace and view over the Jolster lake. Next morning, pick your own fresh eggs and herbs. Fry an omelett. Or pick rhubarb and make a pie. Fill up with energy before a new adventorus day. Rent a boat and go trout fishing at the Jolster lake. Go with Jolster rafting on a wet and wild experience or a guided trip on the glacier. Get inspired with guided tours in the home of the renown painter Nikolai Astrup. The logged farm house from 1890 belonged to the oldest couple in Jolster, who lived to become 102 and 105 years old. In 2010 we restored the house to its original tenants style, and added floor heating under the slate floors, a bathroom, fully equipped kitchen and soft beds.
