Norefjell ski resort, Norway

ski hotels


Not far from the capital city of Oslo is Norefjell, home of the alpine skiing events during the 1952 Oslo Winter Olympics. Norefjell is only 100 kilometres from Oslo, making it an easy destination for a shorter stay in Norway. The mountain features terrain for all levels of skiers and snowboarders as well as terrain parks and off-mountain activities.

The resort is located south of Hogevarde, the highest point in this mountainous area. In fact, one trail from the resort goes up to Hogevard-at 1,459 metres-where a mountain lodge owned by the Norwegian Trekking Association is located and available for use on the weekends during high season. The ski resort has 13 lifts accessing over 25 kilometres of slopes. The vertical drop here is 1,010 metres. Powder days are plentiful thanks to Norway’s abundance of winter snow.

There are two terrain parks, one for advanced riders and one for intermediate. They both feature a variety of boxes, rails and jumps for everyone to practice on, and show of their skills. Night skiing is also available at the resort a couple evenings a week.

For Nordic skiers, there are 120 kilometres of groomed trails to ski on. Other activities available around the resort are ATVing, dog sledding and a visit to the local nature park. There are another 40 kilometres of cross country tracks along Lake Kroderen in the valley.

There is a good variety of apartments, hotels, cottages and even tourist farms for visitors to stay at. The resort features excellent après dining, cafes and pubs to warm up in after a day spent in the snow.

Other things to do in the area include kiting, indoor climbing, horseback riding, dog sledding and spa. The facilities at Norefjell are modern and charming-this would be a great family or couples getaway.
