Norway’s largest ski resort and oldest too, Trysil is one of the country’s most popular resorts for good reason; the terrain is varied with 66 runs in total providing something for all abilities ranging from gentle greens to thrilling blacks.
Thanks to one of the best lift systems in Europe, with virtually no queues to be heard of, you can spend maximum time enjoying the beautifully pisted slopes. Better yet, if you can’t get enough of the snow during the day Trysil offers evening skiing on Fridays, Sundays and Tuesdays, with a selected number of slopes lit up until 8pm. However if you’re more of a morning bird than a night owl, the resort also offers early morning skiing every Wednesday and Saturday from 5 February until 19 April. With the freshly groomed slopes to yourself for a few hours before everyone else is allowed up you’ll feel on top of the world, literally. Only open to small groups, make sure you remember to book the day before.
Trysil’s ski season is long, starting as early as the beginning of November and running all the way through to late April and is full of beautifully dry snow. In fact, so confident is the resort of the snow quality that they guarantee your lift pass, so that if the conditions aren’t up to scratch they will refund you in full.
For an Après ski party, you’re better off heading to the lively resort of Hemsedal, but if you are after something rather more sophisticated then you are in the right place. There are plenty of restaurants and bars to choose from for a refreshing drink after your day on the mountain and for later, the resorts two hotels; The Radisson Blu and The Park Inn, both have a number of trendy bars and restaurants for you to spend the evening in.
