Hafjell is the closest ski area to Lillehammer (just 15 minutes by car/bus) where the 1994 Winter Olympics were held, with many events held on the slopes of the resort. It has since then has gone from strength to strength, becoming the 3rd largest in Norway with 50km of marked runs.

Despite being a snow sure resort that receives regular and plentiful snowfall, it nonetheless is covered by artificial snowmaking meaning that every single season is guaranteed snow.

An excellent resort for beginners, the sunny slopes offer quick progression and a real confidence boost for nervous intermediates.

There are some red runs for more experienced skiers, some with steeper black sections, as well as a slalom piste with start gates, timer and filming.

There are 3 well-maintained terrain parks offering a wide selection of jumps, boxes and rails for all levels. The ‘Main Park’ is renowned as one of the top ten in the world and has hosted the X games in the past.

Night skiing is held twice a week on Tuesdays and Thursdays and there are an impressive 300km of groomed cross-country ski tracks.
