Ski Lodge at Vradal

Vradal is a ski area in Norway that's got some challenges, yet isn't too intimidating for beginners to enjoy.  Some Norwegians consider Vradal to be a "hidden gem" because it's got great views, but no lift lines, and is is not very well known by those outside of Norway.  Situated at the top of the mountain, and within walking distance to the top of the Vradal ski slopes, the Ski House of the Day is the Mountain Lodge at Vradal:

Probably not what Lennon and McCartney had in mind, but the kitchen has an abundance of Norwegian wood:

The living areas are basic and simple, and almost command you to get outside and ski.
While the fireplace isn't exactly what I'd expect to see in a Norwegian ski lodge, if you're cold enough, any heat source is a good thing.

The house has five bedrooms with beautiful wooden beds that look oh-so-Norwegian; and something I notice right away about them is the thick, fluffy, comfy feather-bed comforters on all the beds:

This ski house has the requisite Scandinavian sauna, and this one also has a view:
