People have used skiing as a mode of transport for over 4000 years. However in the 1800's downhill skiing as we know it today was influenced like never before by Sondre Norheim from Morgedal. Who was this charismatic character who changed ski design and gave us the world's first carving ski and full heel binding? Where did he live and what was it about the terrain he grew up in that so inspired him to develop skis and new techniques just for the pure rush of the downhill? The answers are waiting for you in Morgedal, this magic little Norwegian valley which gave ski sport to the world.

Ski making has long traditions in Norway and there have been many famous ski makers spread around the country.
Sondre Norheim changed the way people saw skiing; he designed and made skis which enabled skiers to tackle the slopes in ways never seen before. From transport to sport, skis were now being used for the pure joy of the downhill, jumping and racing to the bottom of the snowy hills; it was the dawn of ski sport. These skis are the originals in a long story of ski sport development and the roots for this exciting pastime rest here, in this small and unassuming valley called Morgedal.
Now you have the opportunity to make from scratch, add the finishing touches to, or simply buy a finished pair of "Sondre Originals".
Ski testing is and always has been an important part of ski development (tough job, but someone’s got to do it) and no trip to Morgedal is complete without a spot of ski testing. In the winter you can make your own skis and then head out to the "world’s first slalom slopes" and test them out. Skiing on these original models is guaranteed to be a unique experience and will truly test your skills as a skier. After attempting this there is every chance that you will be humbly in awe of the first ski pioneers and what they achieved with these slippery planks of wood!
If any of this sparks a flame of interest then we would love to welcome you to Morgedal. Whatever your time constraints, level of interest or ambitions as a ski maker – we have a range of offers to meet your needs.
