Skiing in Myrkdalen

Skiing in Myrkdalen

Despite Myrkdalen’s focus on catering for beginners and families, there’s certainly something for everyone. The ski resort boasts 34km of slopes varying in difficulty. The resort also has great off-piste terrain and the high snowfall means there’s plenty of powder to go around, we’d suggest hiring a guide. The ski touring in the area is excellent too. If you hire a local guide you can find the best terrain and powder pockets safely. Easily accessible powder fields with low elevation, what more could you want?

On Friday evenings the runs are floodlit and the lifts stay open so you can enjoy some extra hours and a different slope experience.
