The research station has a snowmobile (Arctic Cat - Bearcat Z1 XT), which may be used with approval from the station director Torbjørn Ergon or manager Erika Leslie.

Any driver of the snowmobile must show a valid driving license for snowmobiles. Our insurance only covers employees at the University of Oslo. Other users must provide their own insurance (liability insurance is required by law). If you plan to use the snowmobile for research, please contact the director or manager well ahead of time to make arrangements.

The snowmobile can be used to transport equipment or supplies between the Finse railway station and the research station without a special permit (other than approval from the station manager). Permission for any other usage must be applied for on a project-by-project basis – see information here. For contribution toward fuel expenses and maintenance, we charge. NOK 5,- per km.

Here is a quick manual for the use of the snowmobile. You can also find a copy of this manual at the station.
