Skarverennet is the world's third largest cross-country skiing event and was organized for the first time in 1974. The 37 km long track runs from Finse over the high mountains to Ustaoset and more than 12,000 ski-loving people try this every year. The race takes place in the last half of April each year. The unique view and atmosphere are very special, and so is the joy of reaching the finish line at Ustaoset. Freestyle was introduced in 1987 and since then you have been able to choose a style. In 1996, the 25 km long ski track came from Haugastøl, which also has a finish at Ustaoset.
