Lifjell Ski Resort

Lifjell Ski Resort is centrally located in Telemark, only 1 hour away from Langesund and 2 hours away from Oslo. 2 ski lifts and 3 downhill alpine slopes.

Lifjell is your nearest high mountain whether you're coming from Denmark or living in the central eastern region. Lifjell is only 12 km from the trading post of Bø in Telemark. The Lifjell area is a mountain plateau located between Seljord, Notodden, and Bø. The high mountain terrain in the area is like a "Jotunheimen in miniature," with around 20 peaks over 1100 meters above sea level.

Ski Center and Winter Land
The alpine offerings at Lifjell consist of the Ski Center and Winter Land. Winter Land is a separate area ideal for children and beginners in downhill skiing, snowboarding, and cross-country skiing. Here, you'll find an easy downhill slope of about 350 meters and a magic carpet lift.

In the Ski Center, you'll find a T-bar lift and four slopes with varying levels of difficulty (ranging from 300 to 1200 meters).

Lifjell Park (Terrain Park)
The park's features will vary depending on weather and snow conditions. Lifjell Park has been developed in recent years into a diverse and exciting park with both easy and more challenging elements. Many jumps, rails, and pipes make it suitable for a range of skill levels. Continuous efforts are made to further develop the park and introduce variety in the elements throughout the season.

Lifjell Ski School
Lifjell Ski School has highly qualified instructors. Whether you want to give your children a good start in their skiing career or it's the adults in the family looking to try snowboarding, we have instructors to provide you with a great experience. See here for more information and bookings.

You can find a fantastic 360-degree view of the slopes here.

Cross-Country Skiing Trails
At Lifjell, there are 80 km of groomed cross-country skiing trails. On the Jønnbu plateau, there are four child-friendly circular routes, each spanning 2-3 km.

There are also many opportunities for more challenging ski tours in the beautiful high mountain terrain. Varied trails at altitudes of 1000-1100 meters above sea level, surrounded by several peaks reaching up to 1300 meters above sea level. All the trails start from the large parking lot at Jønnbu. If the weather is rough in the mountains, the Vihus trails (a 5-minute drive from Lifjell) in lower-lying forest terrain can be a good alternative.

Lifjelltunet Cabin Park
Lifjelltunet Cabin Park has cozy rental cabins in beautiful surroundings at the top of Lifjell. Most cabin areas are centrally located around the Jønnbu area, which is at an elevation of 700-800 meters above sea level.
