Trysil ski resort, Norway

ski hotels

Trysil is Norway’s largest resort, and one of its most historic. The world’s first ski club was formed in Trysil in 1861, and the resort is also known for its regular turnout of Norwegian Ski Team athletes. Trysil is also home to Scandinavia’s first six person chair lift-it’s also heated! Trysil is made up of four different ski areas: Skihytta, Høgegga, Trysil Høyfjellssenter, and Trysil Turistsenter. They all offer different terrain and even different conditions though you’ll find a good mix of ski trails throughout the resort suited to all levels of skiing and snowboarding.

The resort has 31 lifts covering its 66 slopes. Snowboarders can hit up either of the two terrain parks for added fun and challenge and young skiers have the option of skiing in any of the three children’s ski areas. Ski school is also available here. The resort enjoys a long season, from the end of October to the end of April, and cross country skiers can also enjoy 100 kilometres of trail built just for them!

Because a lot of Trysil’s ski runs are located around wooded areas, it is protected more from the weather and provides stable snow conditions year round.

Night skiing is available on both alpine and Nordic tracks. Three days a week skiers and snowboarders can tackle the six slopes lit up for night skiing until 10 pm. All ski passes valid for one or more days automatically includes night skiing.

Trysil is easy to access, being a 2.5 to 3 hour drive from Oslo. In Trysil you’ll find a good choice of accommodations including family friendly cabins, apartments and hotels with ski in-out access. There are also ski buses and shuttles that run back and forth throughout the resort December to April to get you to the slopes. The bus is free as long as you have a valid ski pass.

After-ski, as they call it in Norway, venues are plentiful. Trysil contains a good number of restaurants, with the majority being located right off the mountain, as well as pubs and bars. There are also a few nightclubs in the village should you still have enough energy to welcome in the early hours.
