    Im Hege (50), live on a farm with my mother, 160 sheep, 35 cattle,12 horses/ponys, 1mule, 1 Donkey, 3 dogs and a cat.

    The farm is in the middel of the skiarea,so in wintertime i go skiing(alpine) almost every day.
    In the summertime i spend a lot of time in the mountains,looking after my sheep.I also have a farmhouse in the mountains where i use to stay for some days.

    There is a gondol who goes to the top of the mountain here,who starts 300 m from the farm.
    A lot of trails for walking and bike around the farm, rafting, paragliding.
    Close to Dovrefjell where the wild muskox and reindeer lives
