From the ferry at Aursneset drive 21.9 km towards Stranda on road 60. Take left towards Fjellsetra, and continue 2.1 km until you get to the Sunnmørsalpane ski centre.
From the car park at Sunnmørsalpane ski centre walk up along the ski-lifts that goes directly up the hill. When you get to the end of the shortest of the lifts turn a little right towards the small top to your right. From this top continue towards the next top (it has a small cairn), and then towards the summit (no cairn).
In winter follow one of the ski-slopes running right (as seen from below) of the ski-lifts. When you get to the top of the ski-lift follow the next slopes to the summit, a little behind the top of the ski-lift.
You can descend via your ascent route or you can select to follow the small valley back down to the long ski-lifts you followed when ascending.

Sigurd and I had already skied Auskjeret this nice Easter Eve, but he had then ascended on cross country skis and descended on snow board. Now he wanted to have his second hike ever using mum's Telemark skis, and I wasn't hard to persuade for a second hike of the day.
We set out after the ski-lifts had stopped running for the day, and enjoyed the sunny and warm conditions up along the ski-slopes. At the summit we rested a little and watched a paraglider circling above the Fjellsetra area, before heading back down.

The weather forecast for this Saturday was very poor so I hadn't planned anything ambiguous. But the conditions wasn't terrible so Elisabeth and me decided to pay a visit to Sætrefjellet, via the ski-slopes.
It was a few rain drops in the air, but of no concern, when we set out half an hour after noon, but the wind was quite strong even down by the Fjellsetra ski centre's car park. And when we got further up the wind was starting to get quite problematic. At one point at the first small top (~850 metres), she was blown sideways and was down on all four before regaining control!
The summit was a pretty hostile place, so we returned after having taken a few photos.
