Trysil Ski Resort

Trysil is Norway’s largest resort and is home to perhaps the most varied terrain too – the 360 degree skiing around the fjell has something for everyone.

There are some fantastic beginner facilities as with many Norwegian resorts, but don’t let this put you off if you are a better skier or snowboarder – the hill has something for everyone. Accommodation at the resort has lots of variety, from large hotels with great facilities for children to pretty log cabins in the woods surrounding the mountain.

Trysil Skiing and Snowboarding

For beginners there are few better places to learn than Trysil. There are fantastic beginner zones at the Turistsenteret and at Høyfjellssenteret on the other side of the mountain, after which progression on to long greens is great – particularly at the latter. Intermediates will love the wide open slopes above the treeline, in particular the long reds above Skihytta.

For more advanced skiers and riders, there is a great selection of often well-groomed blacks which are steep in places – in particular Piste 75 which reaches 45 degrees. After fresh snow there is some off piste but it does track out quickly. For those into freestyle, there are some great terrain parks – which by the second half of the season are full of big jumps and features.

  • Total Pistes: 71km
  • Green: 32%
  • Blue: 32%
  • Red: 21%
  • Black: 15%
  • Lifts: 31
  • Altitude: 415m – 1100m

Trysil Resort

There are two primary bases, Høyfjellssenteret and Turistsenteret. The former is best suited for families as the slopes above it are somewhat more gentle – but both are great places to take kids to. Off the slopes there are a huge range of activities on offer, ranging from dog sledding to of course as it’s Norway, cross country skiing.

Accommodation can either be found in large hotel resorts, which have excellent facilities for families and good access to the slopes, or in cabins and chalets in the woods – most of which are still ski-in-ski-out.

How to get to Trysil

The drive up from Oslo is around 180km and takes approximately two and a half hours, traffic dependant.
