Norway's largest ski resort and perhaps Europe’s best kept secret, Trysil is considered a skiing paradise by many and a haven from busy resorts elsewhere. The resort is renowned for its great snow conditions, long ski season, uncrowded well-groomed pistes, barely-there lift queues and world class ski instructors.
Exceptional skiing for all abilities
As with most Scandinavian ski resorts, Trysil has a long guaranteed season which starts in December and runs through until the end of April - and sometimes even into May!
The resort consists of four main interconnecting ski areas, totalling an impressive 81km of downhill skiing spread over 69 well-groomed slopes. There's a fantastic choice of long, wide pistes perfect for beginners and those looking to improve their technique, whilst several snow parks and expertly maintained black slopes are a favourite with expert skiers looking for something more exhilarating!
Embrace Nordic skiing
For those who relish the timeless allure of Nordic skiing, the mountain unveils over 100km of meticulously groomed cross-country tracks, allowing you to savor Trysil's beauty in a unique and invigorating way.
Great for families
Trysil is often voted the best ski resort in Norway for family skiing with lots to do in resort and the surrounding area. Enjoy a swim, practise your bowling skills, experience the thrill of husky sledding or marvel at the stunning snow-covered landscape on a horse sleigh ride.
