A different kind of skiing

There is something special about skiing down a mountain that you paid with sweat to conquer. This is a different kind of skiing. Everything feels bigger. Stronger. You can feel nature rewarding your efforts by multiplying everything by ten. The colors, the view, the first turn that fills you with absolute excitement. This feeling is one that a chair lift can never give.

Ski mountaineering or backcountry skiing is an activity that is continuing to grow in popularity.

Would you like to go backcountry skiing in Oppdal, but you’re not quite sure where to go? In that case, keep reading.

The people from Oppdal love backcountry skiing. As soon as the first snow touches the ground- maybe as early as November, they are out and on their way. The excitement continues all through the winter season, and well into spring when the sun turns the snow into slush. We are proud to say that Oppdal is the best area for back-country skiing in mid-Norway.

You will not find sharp edges or steep mountains in Oppdal, but you will see mountains that offer varied and accessible hikes, winter as well as summer. Both the expert and the beginner has endless options. The most popular area for ski mountaineering is Storlidalen. The 20-kilometer long valley creates an Eldorado for adventurous backcountry skiers.

Oppdal keeps you close to the mountains, and wherever you may stay in Oppdal, you will always have to option of exploring nature.

If you are new to the activity, we suggest an avalanche course or a guided trip. Enjoy the mountains in Oppdal!
