There are alpine ski resorts and trails for cross-country skiing throughout the country.
First-timers are usually impressed by the fast and efficient lift systems, the rather short lift queues and the modern ski equipment for hire.
Skiing in Norway is neither a fashionable fad nor an international industry. More than anything it is Norway’s national sport, and Norwegians’ favourite way of appreciating their stunning and unspoilt landscape. In a land passionate about its history and culture, skiing is one of the most cherished of all traditions.
Resorts usually open in November. The snow often remains light, powdery and deep until April.
And remember, cross-country skiing is free of charge.
