This list is based on figures from the Norwegian Alpine Resorts Association. All the ski resorts below have developed excellent facilities for children in recent years, and are thus very family-friendly destinations.
Norway's largest ski resort, with around 40 lifts and over 70 kilometres of runs connecting three sides of the mountain into a varied alpine facility. Popular with families, Trysil has a good ski school and it was one of the first in Europe to achieve the prestigious Sustainable Tourism certification.
Considered by many the best ski area in Norway, Hemsedal is versatile with over 20 lifts, more than 50 slopes and activities for all ages.
As the site for the giant slalom and slalom events during the 1994 Lillehammer Olympics, Hafjell, located 15 kilometres from Lillehammer, offers cool skiing. Take the gondola to the top and choose between many long cruisers - the resort has over 40 kilometres of slopes divided over more than 30 runs.
Hafjell has recently merged with Kvitfjell, a relatively small ski resort just north of Lillehammer which features the magnificent Olympic Downhill Run used for the 1994 Lillehammer Olympics. By the way, the last pitch of the run is much steeper than it appears on TV. You will also find a large children's area at Kvitfjell.
