D3 - Other activities... 


If you get bored of riding and drinking (!!?) then there's loads of other stuff to do here including hitting the Wheelbobs (a summer bobsled) and the Funkarts!!

Wheelbob
Speed: 100km/h
G-force: 3 G
Track lenght from start to finish: 1365 m
Time: 65-70 seconds

Funkart
Speed: 40 km/h

The cost is NOK 225 (about £19 - £20) for both!

Now, the disclaimer bit - All wheelbobs are steered by an authorised pilot. The wheelbob is specially designed for carrying tourists and are caged. All passengers must wear helmets (and back support) and safety unstructions are given by the pilot before the ride. We do not recommend wheelbob for people who suffer from, or have had any neck- or back problems or injuries of any kind. Those with any heart or lung disorders are also advised to refrain from taking the wheelbob ride.

The Hafjell Scene 


You might already be aware that the site for the Nordic Shore build is the resort of Hafjell, just outside of Lillehammer, Norway. What you may not know is that the resort of Hafjell hosted the '94 Winter Olympics and during the winter, is a huge and very popular ski resort. Hafjell offers a variety of other activities too like rafting and paintballing so there's loads to do all year round!

As for the riding, Hafjell already has a very cool scene, some amazing riders, amazing north shore and the best permanent DH run in Norway (used for the last 2 years in the Norwegian DH Cup and the chosen course for next years Norwegian Championship). The build quality of the current trails and north shore is excellent, trust us!

Want proof? Check out www.hafjellfreeride.no for some pics of the trails and local riders. The site itself is in Norwegian but if you don't speak the lingo it doesn't matter, the pics speak for themselves!

D3 - The test... 
The main purpose of this D3 weekender is testing and design. Riders testing the trails, trails testing the riders and, above all, everyone testing the park's future! (No need to worry about bringing your shovel just yet!)

When you arrive you'll be given a map which will allow you to map out your ideas for possible future routes and improvements to existing trails.

This will also be our first opportunity to work together with Hafjell, the amazing resort within which Nordic Shore will be built, which we're really looking forward to.

As we've said before to make Nordic Shore a reality we need you're support and have already had a great deal of interest in both Nordic Shore and the D3 weekend from around the world.

So raid your piggy bank, grab your bike, get out here for D3 and help design and test the 'shore to it's limits!

D3 Weekender 
Design/Dig/Descend

From 19th - 22nd August we're organising D3, a weekend of testing and partying. We want as many riders as possible to come along and sample the existing DH, XC and north shore trails at Nordic Shore in Hafjell, Norway.

There's going to be a welcome BBQ and party on the Friday night, a day's riding on the Saturday and party in the evening and on Sunday we're arranging a proper DH race with prizes etc. followed in the evening with the wind down party and an opportunity to tell us your thoughts on what you'd like to see more/less of and any design ideas you have for next years build.

Prices are being finalised at the moment but the ball park cost of the weekend, including flights, transfers, 3 nights accomodation, lift/ride pass, BBQ and a couple of free beers should be around £280.

We need as many people as possible to come along as we need to convince the resort that Nordic Shore can pull in riders and in return, we're sure you won't be dissappointed.

Join us and be a part of making this Park happen.

More info to follow as we get it....
