Thanks to Ralph for adding this peak.
Snohetta (Snøhetta) - easy and calm. The Norwegian name of the mountain can be translated with "Snow-Hat". This will probably describe the shape of the peak among the year.
And to say the truth on the summit there is mostly snow.
The trip to the summit (elevation 2,286 m/7,500 ft) is more or less very easy to reach. Thus it is also possible to plan a whole family trip up to the top.
But certainly this depends on the season and the weather conditions.
Remember that on wintertime the trip might be much more difficulty than on summertime, because af the coldness and strong wind.
How to come there?
The mountain is located in the Dovrefjell-Nationalpark in Norway.
From Kongsvoll Railwaystation (beside the European Street E6) one follows the path to Reinheim (cabin owns by the Norwegian Tourist Club).
It takes some hours of walking from Konsvoll to Reinheim and therefore it is recommended to stay there and try the summit on the next day.
The cabin is a good place to start up to the summit. The "way" up is marked in summer as well as in winter.
So if one needs something different try the Snøhetta and maybe one can also see musks.
One very useful link to further information (only in Norwegian):
