Alpine skiing and snowboarding

The five ski resorts in Numedal (Vegglifjell, Fagerfjell, Uvdal, Blefjell and Dagali) offer downhill skiing, snowboarding, airboard and jibbing. Fagerfjell Skisenter has three ski lifts and seven slopes of varying difficulty. Here you will also find rails and jumps and two tobogganing slopes. Dagali Skisenter has a family friendly downhill area with three slopes. So has Blefjell. Vegglifjell Skisenter offers downhill skiing, snowboarding, jibbing and airboarding.

The ski resort in Uvdal consists of Uvdal Alpin (Uvdal Alpine Resort) and Alpinparken (the Alpine Park). They offer downhill skiing, snowboarding and jibbing. In total there are 25 slopes of varying difficulty. Both resorts offer skiing lessons and ski rentals and have cafés where you can buy hot and cold meals and drinks. Uvdal Alpin has a designated children’s slope with direct access to a heated cabin and flats, and Alpinparken has jumps, fun boxes, corners and rails for jibbers.

For the children

All the resorts are family-friendly with both easy and more challenging slopes, as well as lots of activities. Uvdal Alpinsenter has a separate area just for children, with their own “lift” and a variety of easy challenges.

Ski rental

Ski school

There are ski schools at Fagerfjell and at Uvdal Alpinsenter.

Cross-country skiing

There are about 50 miles of prepared tracks in easy mountain terrain at Vegglifjell, as well as a variety of more challenging tracks. These also connect to DNT’s (Norwegian Trekking Association) network of tracks and self-serviced cabins.

In the Blefjell/Fagerfjell area you will find around 62 miles of prepared cross-country tracks in winter.

In Nore og Uvdal, over 248 miles of cross-country tracks are prepared each year in the mountains near Dagalifjell and Imingfjell, as well as in the lower valley near Åsbøseterdalen, Øygardsgrend and Tunhovd towards Langedrag. All in all, a wide range of areas and levels of difficulty to choose from.

Winter without skis

Skiing is not the only way to have fun. Langedrag Nature Park is open all year, and here the whole family can see native wild animals up close. For the thrill seekers out there, how about driving rally cars on ice or being part of an elk safari on snow mobiles? Dog sledding and ice fishing are also popular activities. Both Dagali Skisenter and Fagerfjell offer tobogganing.

Where to stay

In Numedal you can stay in accommodations close to the resorts, apartments, individual cabins or traditional mountain lodges.
