Beitostolen 2019 Lodging

If you are new to the AXCS trip or new to the lodging placement process, scroll down past the deposit payment info below for more info.

**********************************************************************

PAYING YOUR MWC2019 LODGING PACKAGE DEPOSIT
To hold any lodging reservation within the AXCS reserved rooms for the MWC2019 trip, AXCS requires a $600 per person deposit paid via AXCS no later than June 15, 2018 or (if you join the trip after June 15) within 10 days of your name going on the "officially going" list. Options for how to pay are listed below.

Terms On Deposits:
The deposit holds your room/board space in your AXCS lodging placement for the number of nights you request. If you cancel between June 15 and August 31, the association will refund all but $50 per person of your deposit(s). For cancellations between September 1 - October 31, all but $75 of your deposit will be refunded. Refunds on cancellations starting November 1 will be subject to hotel policy + AXCS retaining a minimum $125 amount (a portion of which is tax deductible). All trip participants are strongly urged to obtain trip insurance within one week of paying your deposit. AXCS has had good experiences in the past working with Travel Guard for trip insurance. Travel agent Diana Lynn Rau has helped many AXCS members in the past with travel insurance so she is worth consulting for this part of your trip. Diana's contact info: Dianalrau@cs.com -- 970.887.3095 or 970.655.8036

Trip Deposits can be paid by the following methods:

One option is to pay via a check/money order sent to AXCS. Just write a check payable to AXCS and mail check to:
AXCS
P.O. Box 604
Bend, OR 97709

The other option is to pay via on-line with PayPal credit/debit card payment — this amount is a little bit higher (+2.5%) to cover card processing fees.

AXCS LODGING OPTIONS (last update: July 1)

Read this first on how placing skiers into lodging options will work before scrolling down to various descriptions of the lodging menu:

Most of the lodging options below are currently filled. The exceptions are double rooms (no single rooms) in the Gronolen Hotel, one single spot in an all-male USA apartment, and then we have one super large apartment completely open.

But with over 200+ USA skiers on our current list, it is probable that we will still have more moving and shaking in our group as life tends to happen for everyone.

Any person wanting to be added to the AXCS trip should first email jd at xcskiworld dot com to let AXCS National Director J.D. Downing know you want to go on the trip and also to find out what lodging options are available specific to your needs.

Please specify if you are a single or double reservation. With singles, you need to know we almost certainly will not be able to place you in a hotel room by yourself. But in several apartments we can have single rooms. So you need to let J.D. know if you are willing to be matched up with a roommate in a two-bed room (hotel or apartment) and/or if you wish to hold out for an apartment single. For couples J.D. needs to know if you are OK being placed in a shared apartment (you'd have your own double room of course). Open hotel doubles are hard to say at this point if they'll be available later in the summer or not. Right now not, ??? later on.

AXCS MENU OF LODGING RESERVED FOR TEAM USA

For comparison purposes ONLY (remember, 100% of the AXCS reserved space is already booked -- singles and doubles).....here is the info on the Radisson Blu Hotel.....

https://www.radissonblu.com/en/resort-beitostolen

AXCS Hotel Lodging Package:
-- Double per person: 11,100 NOK for 10 nights including half board meals.
-- Single per person: 14,650 NOK for 10 nights including half board meals.

******************

Double Hotel Rooms
10 double rooms at Grønolen Fjellgard 4 km from Beitostølen

https://gronolen.no

This is a very nice older hotel located slightly west of the main Beitostølen village. The hotel will provide on-site half board and there are some nice amenities (see website for pictures and info, you will need to use Google translate or other program as all text is in Norwegian).

AXCS Hotel Lodging Package:
-- Double per person: 11,100 NOK for 10 nights including half board meals.
-- Single per person: 14,650 NOK for 10 nights including half board meals.

J.D. is pretty certain there is ski-in/ski-out access to Nordic trails that connect to the MWC courses and ski stadium (this is being verified). For certain there will be some type of shuttle provided to get skiers to/from stadium on all days and also nightly to/from Radisson for all ceremonies and social events.

Important notes:
— AXCS is not allowed to book these rooms as a “single”, you'd have to pay for two double spots.
— This hotel option is great for someone wanting a “true” Norwegian experience, but will be a little trickier if you have any mobility issues as it is 4km from the main village.

Super Size Brand New (as of January 2019) Condos
Team USA also now has the option to fill two x 8 bedroom-4 bath super size condos in the middle of the Beitostølen village that will be brand new and open as of January 2019. We don't have pictures, but we know all rooms will have two beds and -- notably -- we can't put singles in a room so anyone wanting their own room in these places would need to pay for two spots.

Half board at the Radisson Blu comes with this option at the same apartment double rates as listed in the Spring Digest. Notable: eeveryone in the unit has to be on the same plan with or without half board.

This option is perfect for a really big group of skiers (16) that want to interact together the entire trip as if you had rented your own house. Right now we have the Vamps from Idaho placed in one of the units so currently only one of these super size units is available.

AXCS Apartment Lodging Packages:
-- Double per person: 9,550 NOK for 10 nights including half board meals.
-- Single per person: not available in the super size apartments, you'd have to pay both spots of a "double" to have a room to yourself.
