Beitostolen skiing resort, Norway

ski hotels

Beitostolen is a great resort for a relaxing ski getaway. Located on the edge of the Jotuneheimen National Park, this resort is not only beautiful but is full of fun things to do-skiing being top priority of course.

There are two resorts that make up Beitostolen. Beitostolen Ski Center offers better terrain for beginners and children, while more challenging slopes are found at the Beitostolen Alpine Center in Raudalen. There is a ski shuttle that takes visitors back and forth regularly. One ski pass accesses both areas. The sunny Ski Center is right in the middle of the village and the lifts there access 12 different slopes, two of which are available for night skiing. The resort enjoys a long season, from November to May, and the snow conditions are often excellent. Like many of Norway's ski resorts the slopes are often crowd-free and Beitostolen's lift system is efficient so the queues are short.

Beitostolen skiing

Off-piste skiing and snowboarding is available here. Look into booking a guided tour ahead of time and be sure to have the proper equipment before adventuring out of bounds.

Cross country skiers will love Beitostolen. There are 320 kilometres of track, some stretching all the way into Jotunheimen National Park. There are some cross country paths that are lit until 10 pm. The World Cup Nordic skiing arena is considered one of Norway's best, and you'll also find a biathlon track.

If you need a break from skiing why not try snowmobiling or dog sledding? There are many fun things to do at this resort including snow rafting and even ice fishing. Afterwards cozy up in one Beitostolen's hotels, apartments or cabins--there are 2,000 beds available in the resort--and enjoy some of the local dining and nightlife. While it may be quieter during the weeks, weekends and holidays offer live entertainment and lots of fun after ski. As far as dining options you'll find both traditional and contemporary menus throughout the village. The village itself also has a grocery store and bakery should you want to eat in for an evening or pack slope snacks.
