Winter in Trysil

Family-friendly Trysil is one of the largest and most varied ski destinations in Norway, with a great many slopes and ski lifts.

Alpine skiing and snowboarding

In Trysil, the whole family can take the same lift to the top of a slope and then choose their level of difficulty for the descent, with different pistes of varying degrees. Green, red, blue and black runs are all available, ready prepped for optimum ski experiences. A ski destination for the whole family.

Trysil consists of one large ski area. The mountain's three faces are linked by lifts and slopes. There are three routes over the mountain, and the quickest way to make the trip is on the Hesten and Kanken ski lifts, which will carry you to a height of 3,600 feet above sea level. From the top, you can see for many miles in each direction.

Trysil is also home to one of Norway's best and largest terrain parks.

Snow guarantee

The season starts early in Trysil. Skiing begins as early as 1 November and the season lasts up until 21 April. Fortunately, snow coverage is never a problem. If necessary, the resort can fire up some of the largest and most advanced snow‐production equipment in Norway. All in all, this means more than 150 skiing days for you – and just as many nights preparing the slopes for the people working at the resort.

If, against all expectations, winter should fail to arrive on time, Trysil will refund the money you paid for your skiing holiday. Accommodation, skiing lessons, ski hire and ski lift passes are all included in the snow pledge.

Evening and early morning skiing

On Fridays, Sundays and Tuesdays, Trysil offers evening skiing. You can enjoy skiing on floodlit slopes until 8 pm.

If you would like an extra‐early start to your day, the resort offers early morning skiing every Wednesday and Saturday from 5 February until 19 April. Early birds who want to start the day with a good breakfast in Høgegga and then head off onto the newly prepared slopes can opt for early morning skiing. This offer is only open to small groups, to allow you to experience the exclusive feeling of having the slopes to yourself for a few hours. Just remember to book the day before.

For the children

Holidays in Trysil should be fun for children too. To make sure that skiing is as safe and as much fun as possible, the resort has set up three large children's areas where they can ski to their heart's content in safe and secure surroundings.

All children's slopes and ski lifts are easy for even the youngest visitors to use. Valle and his friends are out on the slopes in the winter and can suggest all kinds of fun and games for the children to enjoy. Trysil also offers day‐care for children and the ski school offers a number of courses for young skiers.

Ski passes

The Trysil Skipass gives you access to 66 prepped slopes and 31 lifts. Children 0 - 6 years can ski for free as long as they are using a helmet.

In Trysil you must buy a SkiPass card for all lift passes. The price is NOK 45 and the pass can be reused the next time you are in Trysil or at any of the other Skistar destinations.
