ON SNOW EXPERIENCE
You’ll have four full days on snow, skiing alongside your fellow Freshtrackers and the Ski Club Rep. Combined, the city’s ski areas have 45 lifts and around 130km of slopes – more than enough to keep all but the keenest skiers and boarders happy for a week. Snow conditions are usually reliable despite the low altitude and away from the slopes there is loads to do. This trip is aimed at Intermediate (Red) and Advanced Intermediate (Silver) on piste skiers according to our ski standards, but if you are unsure of your standard please see our Ski Profile Page.
This four day on piste weekend will be based in the 3* Hafjell hotel, with both the slopes and local town just a short walk away. The hotel is especially regarded for their breakfast options, perfect to fuel you up before a big day on the slopes. The hotel was recently renovated in 2017, with smart modern interior throughout. You’ll be staying in twin share accommodation with 4 nights full board.
Flights with British Airways to Oslo and transfers are included in the package and ski carriage is payable at the airport only, and cannot be pre-booked. Your Ski Club Rep will co-ordinate your transfer so please meet them in the entrance hall at Oslo airport on arrival.
The 1994 Olympic host city of Lillehammer is Norway’s oldest ski resort and is home to five great ski areas – all of which are a short drive from the centre. On piste and off, Norway’s ski pedigree is effervescent, just like the Northern lights which Freshtrackers often catch a glimpse of. Cross your fingers and hope for a front row seat to the greatest light show on earth! For more information check out the Lillehammer Resort Guide.
If you need to hire equipment, Skibua Hafjell Skiutleie is 800m from the hotel and opposite the main lift station.
