See this season’s first ski adventures in Norway

Many Norwegians are on autumn break, and some have even found their way to the ski slopes – having a great time in last year’s snow.


Already in the last weekend of September, when many Norwegians went on autumn break, the first snow-clad slope opened at Geilo ski resort.

Winter is still at least a few weeks away. Still, thanks to 45,000 cubic metres of natural snow saved from last year, supplemented by snow guns, Geilo were able to prepare a big hill, writes FriFlyt.no (external links are in Norwegian only).

– The autumn break is the new Easter, said the ski resort’s CEO, Henning Solhaug, to NRK.

What’s more, there are reports that the conditions are excellent.

Parallel to inviting the season’s first skiers and snowboarders, they’re also still open for downhill biking in other slopes.

These kinds of more summery activities are still open all over Norway. For example, Trysil is reporting a fantastic start for the autumn break, with families doing mountain biking and trail riding, horseback riding, mini golf and more.

However, Geilo aren’t the only ones with early snow. At Sjusjøen ski resort near the Olympic city of Lillehammer, they’ve opened a 100 metre park trail with boxes and rails.

The images and films below, that were posted on Instagram over the past few days, show that people are already having a great time in the snow. That bodes well for what will certainly be a fantastic winter season.
