Kvitfell shares Lillehammer's fame in hosting the 1994 Winter Olympics. The men's downhill course was created here just for the Olympics, and the Super Giant Slalom was also hosted here at Kvitfell. While not a huge resort like Lillehammer's Hafjell, Kvitfell is a sure beauty and offers a snow guarantee-you're ensure great conditions throughout the season! Like most of Norway this resort enjoys a long ski season, from October to the end of April, and if the snow isn't falling there are snow cannons to provide it on the hill in replacement.
You can ski or snowboard 20 kilometres of downhill pistes on Kvitfell, which also features 800 kilometres of Nordic trails. The maximum vertical is 950 metres and you'll find a variety of trail types to ski and snowboard
here. Don't just pack it in after a day of skiing-you can go night skiing here from 5:30 pm to 8:00 pm on certain days throughout the season. Riders will also want to check out the two terrain parks on Kvitfell. The main park consists of 6 jumps and 7 rail boxes, and there is also a beginner park for those just learning to bust tricks.
Small and large groups will enjoy other activities at the resort as well, including dog sledding, ice climbing and ATVing. Be sure to check out these activities and book ahead of time.
There is a limited amount of accommodations at Kvitfell, but you can choose between modern apartments and cozy sizeable chalets. There are a number of restaurants and cafes to grab a bite in after a big day on the mountain and enjoy après entertainment as well. Lillehammer is only 50 kilometres away so you can travel between the resorts and try them both out for activities and ski terrain.
