The west coast of Norway is a breathtaking landscape of towering mountains and glacially carved fjords where the sea weaves fingers into the mainland. In winter, frozen waterfalls garnish the walls of the fjords and the tops are dusted with meters of snow, where high snowfall rates make for great skiing conditions right through to the end of April.
Fantastic ski resorts such as Voss Resort provide excellent skiing for those that enjoy sticking to the pistes with the odd foray into uncharted off-piste areas. If you feel like seeing the fjords of Norway from a different perspective, the multitude of untouched mountains which line the west coast give endless possibilities for ski-touring.
Voss Resort is an established ski resort in the mountains of west Norway with a good selection of pistes great access to off-piste areas and a reliable snow record. The ski resort is just 10 minutes’ drive from the town of Voss; a historic town perched on the edge of a lake with beautiful views and high-standard historic hotels. Voss is just a few hours from the bustling city of Bergen and short drive down to the shores of nearby Nærøyfjord where you can cruise to Flåm as part of the Norway in a Nutshell tour. Voss would be a great choice for a pure skiing holiday, however its excellent location also lends itself to combining skiing with exploring the cultural and natural attractions of Norway’s Fjord region.
Skiing in Voss is well known in Scandinavian skiing circles but less known to the British skiing market. That means Voss Resort is a good choice if you’re looking to ski in some of the more traditionally busy times and want to escape the crowds. Outside of the main holidays flexible direct flights to Bergen also make Voss Resort handy for short skiing breaks.
If you’d like to see the Norwegian fjords from a different perspective then the miles and miles of practically untouched mountains are ideal for ski-touring. With peaceful ascents and stunning, uninterrupted views across valleys, fjords and snow-capped mountain tops, ski-touring really allows you to see a different side of skiing in Norway.
