Alpine skiing

muteplay/pauseplay/pause

In Norway’s ski resorts, the season is long, the conditions are good, and the slopes are so well prepared that you can have fun and feel safe no matter how old you are.

Due to the corona situation, there might be restrictions in the Norwegian ski resorts this winter. Do not visit our resorts if you feel unwell or are in quarantine. Make sure you read up on Fnugg’s corona measures in Norwegian ski resorts before you start planning your ski holiday.

Imagine being three years old and skiing down a hillside for the first time. What an adventure! It was at this age one of our greatest alpine heroes, Aksel Lund Svindal, took on his first full day of skiing. The feeling is something he still treasures.

Why skiing in Norway is more than curves and snow

Norway is considered a skiing paradise by many, and not just because of the long season or the great snow conditions. The main reason is that there is something for everybody on offer here. Play in the children’s slopes, cruise down a red piste, or chase the perfect powder further up in the mountains – the important thing is that you have fun when you do it.

These are Norway’s best ski resorts!

You’ll find family-friendly ski destinations all over the country, and most of them have ski schools and staff who are happy to teach the children to stay on their feet. Common to all facilities is that they work hard to be both safe and enjoyable at the same time. Many resorts have ski lifts literally right on your doorstep – which also means that you can ski all the way back to your room after a long day in the slopes. And after a quick change of clothes, you can lean back and relax with tasty and often local food and drinks in front of you.

Alpine destinations in Norway

If you want to explore different types of resorts, you have a lot to choose from. Find alpine centres all over the country on the map.

Eastern Norway and the Oslo region

Several of the country’s largest – and most snowsure – ski centres are located in Eastern Norway, within easy reach of the capital and close to airports. The capital of Oslo has a varied and exciting winter park just over 30 minutes from the city centre.

Fjord Norway

In Fjord Norway, you’ll find dramatic scenery with high peaks and fantastic possibilities for powder hunters. In most resorts, you’ll get a magnificent fjord view all the way down!

Southern Norway and Telemark

Southern Norway is usually known as a summer island paradise, but the region also has some great ski resorts. In Telemark – the cradle of modern skiing – you can take the cable car Gaustabanen inside Mount Gaustatoppen, and freeride down the mountainside with or without a guide.

Trøndelag and Northern Norway

In Northern Norway, you get a panoramic view of the fjord from the ski centre Narvikfjellet. And if you’re lucky, you’ll be joined by the northern lights! The largest alpine resort in Trøndelag is spread over four mountains in Oppdal.

Olympic champion Aksel Lund Svindal has been skiing almost everywhere. He calls it an eye-opener to have travelled around the world, only to realize that Norway has some of the most wicked conditions on earth.

10 rules of conduct for skiers and snowboarders

1. Do not put yourself or others in harm's way.

2. Adjust your speed according to skills, terrain and conditions.

3. Respect your duty to yield to skiers and snowboarders in front of you.

4. Always leave room for voluntary/involuntary movements when you pass another skier or snowboarder.

5. When you ski into or upwards a slope, make sure to yield to others.

6. Do not stop or sit down in areas that are narrow or obstructed from view.

7. Use the outer edges of the slope when you move around on foot.

8. Always follow signs, markings and directions.

9. Everyone is obliged to assist in the event of an accident or injury.

10. All witnesses (responsible party or not) are obliged to leave their contact information at the scene of an accident.

    Get your snow fix summer skiing

    If you thought that springtime signals the end of the skiing season, remember that there are high-altitude resorts in Norway where you can have fun on snow all summer long.

    However, getting an early start is essential. The glaciers can be icy at first but will soften with the first rays of sun to provide hours of good skiing. By about midday, the slopes might turn to slush – a perfect time for a cold beer, a swim and some sunbathing.

    When these summer ski centres open and close depends on the snow and weather conditions, so check the snow report before you go.

    Leaving it as you found it

    Take only pictures, keep only memories.

    Norway is a country of outstanding natural beauty, with dramatic waterfalls, crystal clear fjords, majestic mountains, and gorgeous glaciers. Preserving this landscape, its communities, and the way of life is essential for locals and visitors alike.

    Norwegian philosophy is very much that conservation is everyone’s responsibility. Enjoying nature and the outdoors is considered a national pastime, and this is reflected in our attitude towards the preservation and use of the wilderness.

    Whether it’s skiing in the mountains or on the trail, Norwegians try to leave as small a footprint as possible. Leave it as you would like to find it is the mantra, regardless of where you are.
