Strynefjellet ski resort, Norway

ski hotels

Strynefjellet is one of Norway’s lesser known mountain resorts, though offers a great experience. Part of the ski slopes cover a glacier and you can see out to the fjords. Summer skiing on the glacier is also available. There are three lifts at Stryn, able to take up 3,200 skiers and snowboarders per hour. The plateau at the top is 1,600 metres above sea level and the views from up here are breathtaking. The ski resort consists of six red, one black and one blue run so is geared more towards intermediate and advanced skiers and snowboarders.

There are great off-piste areas, though be sure to either go with a guide or go only with a group that is experienced with riding on glaciers-beware of crevasses!-and riding in backcountry. The glacier Stryn is on is one of the largest glaciers, called the Tystigbreen, in all of mainland Europe.

There are cross country paths and snowshoeing paths available at Stryn. A snow park is also being added for 2010. There are snowboard camps held here throughout the winter.

Summer skiing is popular here, and starts at the end of May or the beginning of June. Summer accommodations from tents to huts are available. The Einetappen pub is popular for after ski enjoyment.

The Tystigen Café located at Stryn has a good variety of food and beverages. Be sure to get a spot on the patio and enjoy something hot off the grill after a great day on the glacier.

Don’t let winter be the only time you ski. Get out in the sun, enjoy the spectacular scenery and explore the glacier at the Stryn Sommerski Centre. You can enjoy camping and a number of other winter activities you would usually only have the opportunity to take part in in the winter, in the summer!
