Hemsedal is probably way better than Geilo, since that valley got it all. Not much ice climbing in Geilo. Valdres is also a good alternative, with good ice climbing and a couple of ok ski resorts. You can do a lot of nice ski touring in march in the mountains between Hemsedal and Filefjell (Valdres)
Good luck!!


Hvor Keeeeeeg er ikke jeg?? Ingierkollen er stedet à väre om vinteren! Skal kjöre ned bakken med porschen min, kegster som jeg er

Hemsedal is definitely your best choice. It has one of the best ski resorts in Norway (way better than Geilo), and good mountains to do off piste skiing off. Moreover it is well known for ice climbing.

I dont know any guides in Hemsedal, but Thomas Carlstrøm at the sport shop "skandinavisk høyfjellsutstyr" may be able to help you. The phone number is +47 32 09 00 67.
