The most usual approach and the easiest route is from the Rondvassbu Lodge. During the high season, around Easter and the high summer, the whole lodge is open. During the rest of the year there is a self service cabin available, for which a DNT key is needed to open. For access to Rondvassbu Lodge see the general Rondane section.

Storronden full size mapStorronden can be climbed from Rondvassbu Lodge in the spring on skis and by walking during the summer. The ski route, to all intents and purposes, roughly follows the summer walking path up the west ridge. However, a ski ascent may have to deviate off the apex of the west ridge if the winter winds have blown snow off it and onto the lee slopes. I have described the walking route but make some references to a ski ascent also.
