Trysil is Norway’s biggest ski resort. It has 71km of skiing, about half of which is easy. There are also a reasonable amount of reds and some blacks.
The resort is spread over four linked sectors. The Turistsenter offers a variety of piste levels as well as a children’s area, snowpark, family park and the main express lifts.
For the more adventurous, the Høgegga area offers fast black runs and early morning skiing on Wednesdays and Saturdays. Families should head to the Trysil Høyfjellssenter, where you will find a heated 6-seater chairlift. For open, sunny slopes, follow the locals to the Skihytta. The main snow park has been voted the best in Norway and offers a variety of features and half pipes, as well as an informal competition every Saturday.
There is also a smaller pipe and mogul area for beginners. And there’s night skiing three days a week, including access to the snow park. The resort’s snow pledge promises at least 8km of skiing or your money back. Like other Norwegian resorts, there’s a long season from November to May. There are several areas to stay at the foot of the mountain, and more areas, consisting mainly of cabins, higher up. All are connected by free bus. Almost all the accommodation is slope-side. The resort is an easy 160km from Oslo by road or rail.
