Winter in Voss

One ski destination, two ski centers, and a long skiing tradition - Voss, the winter capital in Fjord Norway, offers much skiing fun.

Alpine skiing and snowboarding

With long skiing traditions and two ski centres, Voss Resort and Myrkdalen Mountain Resort, Voss has become one of the most established ski destinations in Norway – popular among families as well as skiing enthusiasts. It is not without reason that World Cup events are frequently held here.

Voss is one of the most reliably snowy ski destinations in Norway. Altogether 31 miles of well-prepared slopes await, offering varying terrain ranging from forest runs to high alpine slopes with breathtaking views.

The two ski centres in Voss cater for all ages and abilities, from small children and families to expert skiers.

Voss Resort is situated in Bavallen, only five kilometres from Voss centre. A ski bus service operates between Voss and Bavallen daily. Piste map (PDF 9 MB).

Myrkdalen Mountain Resort offers activities for children at weekends, during the holidays and on request.
