Why ski in Norway and Sweden?

Quiet slopes and short lift queues. Even during the main holiday periods you will find the slopes quiet and crowd free.

Excellent ski schools. Our exclusive ski schools are designed by us to fit your family. They are lead by experienced and trusted instructors, and the adult and children's lessons are synchronised for ultimate ease and peace of mind. 

Paradise for families. From the fantastic choice of activities to the fabulous gentle and safe slopes, you and your family are sure to have a great time.

Long season and guaranteed snow. As with most Scandinavian ski resorts, Trysil has a long-guaranteed season which starts in December and runs until April (and even into May sometimes!)

Beautiful scenery. From unique rolling hills to an alpine paradise - you will not be disappointed by the views.

Choice on and off the slopes. As well as fantastic alpine skiing, our resorts have a great selection of cross-country trails and snow parks. Off the slopes there is a varied choice of what to do in your free time, including husky sledding or relaxing in the hotel spa.

I'm thinking of taking my family skiing for the first time. Is Scandinavia a good choice?

Norway and Sweden are a paradise for families. Children are especially well catered for with exclusive clubs, activities and crèche facilities. The skiing is safe and gentle with separate skiing areas especially for young children. Most resorts offer free children's lift passes all season long.

What are the ski schools like?

The ski schools in Scandinavia are renowned for being passionate, welcoming and fantastic with children.

All of the instructors are fluent in English and understand how to help you achieve your goals on the slopes. You and your family are guaranteed to have a fantastic and memorable ski school experience.

Is childcare available?

At skiScandinavia we strive to create relaxing family ski holidays, which is why we offer complimentary childcare services at the SkiStar Lodge Trysil, in Norway during the February Half Term and Easter school holidays.

Our complimentary childcare is run by our passionate skiScandinavia nannies and usually entails a mixture of indoor and outdoor play.

You drop your children off at the assigned point at the start of each session and once everyone is all set, the nannies and children will start their morning/afternoon of activities and games based on the children's ages.

Activities include crafts and painting as well as sledging and fun in the snow if the weather is suitable. At the end of an enjoyable session you will collect your children from the assigned point and the nannies will update you on what a fun day it's been.

As per UK guidelines, group sizes and child to carer ratios are based on the age of the children to ensure the best possible care is provided. Our skiScandinavia childcare team are CRB checked (or Scandinavian equivalent) to give you complete peace of mind. Group sizes are limited so early booking is recommended. 

Can I pre-book lift passes, ski rental and ski school?

Yes, we recommend pre-booking your lift passes, ski rental and ski school with us as we can arrange the best ski school times and have your lift pass collected and ready to use on the day of your arrival.

Do I need any special clothing for skiing in Norway or Sweden?

As with skiing anywhere you will need windproof, waterproof and warm ski wear. For example, it is best to follow the rule of many layers as opposed to one big heavy jacket. Thermal underwear and thermal socks are suggested for all skiing holidays as they will work with your body to keep you warm. Helmets are provided free of charge.

When will I receive my travel documents?

Your final, detailed holiday information will be issued approximately 10 days prior to travel in your Vamoos App.
