Winter at Oslo Winter Park

Oslo Winter Park offers good skiing only 20 minutes from Oslo city center.

Oslo Winter Park

Oslo Winter Park is just 20 minutes from central Oslo, and is the largest ski resort in the area. It offers many downhill slopes and a vertical drop of 1,250 feet. The facility has several lifts, including one six-seater express lift. This is one of the few places in the world where you can easily combine big city pleasures with fantastic skiing.

The Winter Park has something for most people, from easy slopes in the beginner's area near the bakery, to the only European superpipe open to the public. Oslo Winter Park is one of Norway's largest activity parks with its own slopestyle line, and offers wide tracks for everything from family fun to carving.

At Oslo Winter Park you'll find a ski school, ski rental, repair shop and café and everything else you expect from an alpine park that aims to cover all your needs. The location, at 1,742 feet above sea level, along with snow cannons at every track, insures a season lasting from early December to the middle of April. Throughout the season, all tracks are lit by floodlights and open for evening skiing five days a week.

Discounts are available for businesses and schools.

Ski school

Oslo Winter Park's ski school aims to inspire and excite by focusing on play, fun and a sense of achievement, in order to create a life-long love of skiing and snowboarding.

The school offers both classes and private sessions at all levels, in disciplines such as cross country, alpine skiing, telemark and snowboarding. The ski school is open every day from December until Easter, both in the daytime and in the floodlit areas in the evenings, and tutoring is available in Norwegian, English, German and French. All necessary equipment can be rented at the main building (Toppsenteret).

The ski school can be reached by email to skiskole@oslovinterpark.no.

Ski rental and repair shop

Gear can be rented several places in the park: At the main building 8Toppsenteret), by the car park, and in the Wyller area. Here you can rent alpine skis, snowboard, cross country skis, and warm clothing. At the service shop there are helmets, gloves, goggles and everything else you might need for a good skiing experience. Equipment can be pre-booked for rental online, if you wish to plan ahead.

Test center
In ther Wyller area you'll find Norway's largest test center, where more than a hundred pairs of skis and many late-model snowboards are available for rent. You can try them out just for fun or to test before you buy your own. The test center has everything from regular skis to advanced racing skis.

Repair shop
A new repair shop has been opened in the Wyller area, equipped with a new edge-grinder. There, your equipment can be taken care of by the same experienced crew as in the center's old shop.
