Possibly Norway’s most popular resort, and for good reason; Hemsedal has a brilliant range of terrain from exciting blacks that run through the trees to long green runs that snake from the highest point all the way down to the base, opening up the mountain to beginners.
The resort is known not only for its brilliant skiing but also for its breathtaking scenery. It is the snowboarding press' most photographed resort, and the views from the mountain down the valley will stop you in your tracks in order to take a quick photo or ten.
Hemsedal’s height and location provide it with some of the best and most consistent snow conditions in all of Europe. The off piste skiing here is brilliant with plenty of powder fields that are easily accessible from the pisted runs.
The village itself feels typically Norwegian thanks to the traditional restaurants, and wood clad buildings, however with trendy bars, cool sushi restaurants and some lively clubs the village is well set up for European après ski, with a Nordic twist of course.
