Kvitfjell was built for the 1994 Lillehammer Olympics. Since then, it has become one of the most modern ski resorts in Northern Europe.
In Norway, Kvitfjell is known far and wide as one of the best ski resorts. In a country that is obsessed with skiing, and is home to some of the top athletes in winter sports history, that says something.
Together with neighboring Hafjell, this is where the world’s best alpine skiers competed for fame and glory in the 1994 Winter Olympics. A pass grants access to both sets of lifts, letting you enjoy a range of competition-level slopes, large terrain parks and off-piste areas – as well as a range of family friendly slopes and a ski practice area.
You can also bypass the pistes altogether and head into the surrounding nature and mountains along – literally – hundreds of kilometres of prepared cross-country tracks.
Kvitfjell is proud to be a destination free from junk- and deep fried food. By the slopes and cross-country tracks you’ll find charming cafés serving snacks and hot beverages, and there’s also a number of après-ski and dining venues. Go to the easily visible GudbrandsGard hotel in the middle of the slopes for their swimming pool, spa and nightclub – and a great restaurant for fine, Norwegian dining.
It is easy to get to Kvitfjell, and if you want to spend the night, the mountain has several accommodation alternatives, from cabins and apartments to modern ski in/ski out hotels.
