Little lakeside town with slopes 15km north at Hafjell (230m). This is a worthwhile little area with a vertical of 830m. The downhill and super-G races went to Kvitfjell, about 35km further north, developed specially for the purpose. It's steeper but smaller - 18km of pistes. Hafjell's slopes are varied, with some challenging reds and long blues through the trees.
There is an 'excellent' terrain park and night-skiing is popular. The ski school is highly praised in 2008: 'The quality of instruction and fun were the best I've experienced.' Facilities for children are good, with a new snow garden and child care centre. The resort has a couple of bars and restaurants - Woody's bar and Peppi's pizza are recommended.
