Trysil is Norway’s skiing resort par excellence and thousands of visitors come here to ski each winter. Trysil-Knut Ski Museum and Experience Centre offers you an unforgettable skiing experience, regardless of the season.
The first of its kind
The world’s first ever ski jump is one of the museum’s main attractions. Here you can try jumping the legendary Holmenkollen ski jump under the instruction of Norwegian ski jumping ace Espen Bredesen. Hear the crowd roar as you take a seat on the boom! You start from the same spring board used by the Norwegian national team. Once you’ve landed safely in the enclosure your distance appears on the score board.
Skiing superstars Brå and Dæhlie
In the ski museum’s commentary box you can provide your own commentary on the time when Brå broke his ski pole, and in the waxing shop you get the chance to meet the Norwegian skiing legend Bjørn Dæhlie. Dæhlie won a total of eight Olympic gold medals over the course of his career, and in the waxing shop you can hear him speak about his many duels with skiing contemporaries Vladimir Smirnov, Gunde Svan and Vegard Ulvang. Dæhlie’s numerous trophies and awards are on display on the back wall of the shop.
Trysil-Knut Ski Museum and Experience Centre illustrates Norwegian skiing history, from Trysil-Knut’s heyday in the 18th century to the present day. Hallgeir Brenden, Elling Rønes, Johan Sætre, Halvor Næs, Anita Moen and many other local skiing heroes are represented at the museum, and so is of course also Trysil Mountain itself. You can view the state-of-the-art skiing equipment manufactured by Trysil’s own manufacturer, Sweet Protections, and familiarise yourself with some of Trysil’s up and coming skiing stars.
