Kvitfjell is one of the most modern ski resorts in the world, having been purpose-built for the 1994 Winter Olympics. Since then it has become a regular stop on the world cup circuit and famous for having one of the steepest slopes on the tour. Popular due to its accessibility, being just 2,5 hours from Oslo, on the main north - south highway in Norway
and on the main train line; Kvitfjell is also popular destination for weekenders.
Due to Kvitfjell’s modern, purpose-built nature; it is not the most charming or largest ski resort in the world - having only 11 lifts and 29 kilometres of trails and there are only a handful of cafes. However the skiing is second to none with a massive looping red run, coming right down into the bottom of the resort and opportunities for some off-piste skiing up on the treeless top of the mountain. There is even a ski cross track and terrain park there. You lift pass also covers the nearby villages of Hafjell, Skeikampen, Gala and Sjusjoen - making a total of 45 lifts and 117 kilometres of trails.
