Norway

northern-lights1

If you’d like the antithesis of a traditional skiing destination and are looking for empty slopes, miles of untouched powder and something a little bit different, then a corporate skiing event in Norway could be perfect for your company.

Norway is the birthplace of modern skiing and is full of cultural offerings, as well as excellent snow and an opportunity to see the incredible Northern Lights. Sleep on reindeer skins in a traditional cabin, try your hand at telemark skiing or head out into the wild with old-fashioned dog sleds.

Trysil

Trysil, located in Eastern Norway, is the country’s biggest ski resort. Although the resort is very different to alpine resorts and is comparatively low in elevation, the fabulous Norwegian landscape combined with an excellent snow record ensures it’s popularity for skiers and boarders alike. The resort boasts a long season and plenty of snow cover with a typical season running from early November to early May. The resort is suitable for all levels of skier and boasts the best cross country skiing facilities in Europe.

Trysil is home to some impressive terrain parks and is equipped with half pipes and jumps to suit all skill levels. In addition there are plenty of non-skiing activities on offer including winter fishing, snowmobile excursions to Sweden and much more.

Hemsedal

Hemsedal is Norway’s ski paradise and has been Norway’s favorite resort for 40 years. The village itself lies at an altitude of 800m and the local climate, much like it’s sister resort Geilo, makes for extremely snow-sure pistes and a long season.

Fast lifts, minimal queuing and a variety of pistes make this a great resort for skiers of all levels. Beginners will find plenty of suitable nursery slopes backed up by several long and unchallenging green runs on which to build confidence and improve skills. There are a variety of challenges for intermediate skiiers with long reds ideal for cruising. The expert terrain is well laid out with some of the most difficult blacks in Norway along with plenty of opportunity for powder rich off piste skiing.

As is standard in Norway there is an extensive terrain park measuring in at just over 600m and containing a quarter pipe, several half pipes, a big jump, a fun boxer and various other challenges. The village itself is small and fairly quiet, with the emphasis lying primarily on the skiing rather than apres ski!

Norefjell

The small Norwegian ski resort of Norefjell offers 23km of downhill skiing with 19 individual pistes served by 13 ski lifts. The resort was host to many of the events in the 1952 Oslo Winter Olympics. Today Norefjell is home to Norway’s only ski flying slope, with World Championships in this sport staged here regularly. The ski season is relatively long and snow cover very reliable due to the Scandinavian climate.

Norefjell offers limited but enjoyable sking, and is particularly suitable for intermediate and beginner skiers.

Oppdal

One of Norway’s largest ski centres and the host resort to many World Cup Slaloms in the eighties and nineties, Oppdal is one of the larger Ski Resorts in Norway and offers skiing in four separate ski areas with direct access to 82km of downhill skiing, 28 individual pistes served by 16 ski lifts. Non skiing facilities include swimming pools, snowmobiling, sleigh rides and a 400m ice rink.

Due to the Scandinavian climate, snow cover is generally very reliable and a typical season runs from early November to early May.
