The largest ski resort in Norway, Trysil, tempts tourists with the best slopes in the country and the most beautiful views. Modern lifts, a wide range of après ski and snow guarantee is the perfect holiday.

There is no shortage of places ideal for skiing in Norway. Especially when we go to the eastern part of the country and visit its largest ski resort, the magnificent Trysil . It advertises itself as the resort with the best prepared slopes and slopes in all of Norway.

Trysil - the magic of Norwegian snow

In Trysil, we have 66 excellent slopes served by 31 lifts. The season lasts here from the beginning of November to the end of April , and snow is guaranteed by the snowmaking system. The big advantage of the resort is the possibility of going up the mountain with the same lift and downhill along routes of all difficulty levels. Three slopes are connected by one system of lifts and ski slopes, thanks to which we can reach any place without taking skis off.

Beginners are assisted by over 120 instructors of the ski school , offering group and individual lessons. 100 km of trails await fans of cross-country skiing, and snowboard enthusiasts - one of the best and largest snow parks in Norway.

Ski pass in Trysil - prices in the season 2013/2014

As befits a modern ski resort, Trysil offers the possibility of connecting routes with one skipass (Trysil Skipass). When buying a day or longer pass, skiers can ski at night on illuminated trails. Children up to 6 years of age ride for free, but they must wear a helmet. A 1-day pass for an adult costs NOK 385 (approx. 190 PLN), and for young people or seniors - NOK 310. People who decide to purchase a seasonal ski pass for the Trysil routes must expect an expense of NOK 4,995 (adults) or NOK 3,995 (seniors and youth).

But man does not live by skis alone. Apart from the madness on the slopes, tourists can get to know the area in a dog sled or a sleigh pulled by horses. Knettsetra , a mini housing estate made of log cabins, also has a tempting offer. In winter, it is impossible to reach it other than on foot, but after many hours of skiing, it is worth pointing your skis to this place. There is a restaurant and a pub in it, where we can warm up, eat a filling meal and have a good time.

There are over 17 pubs and restaurants in Trysil itself. There are also clubs with live music (including IC: Blu, Ski Pub`en, Laaven or T2). For those who have stayed at the Radisson Blu Resort Trysil hotel, visit the Chill Bowl & Dine located there, drink a fine wine or fortify yourself with a hamburger. As the name suggests, bowling is the favorite pastime of club visitors.

Where to stay in a motorhome?

Radisson Blu is not the only place where you can spend the night. Admittedly, Trysil is extremely camper-friendly. Fans of independent travel will have no problem choosing the right campsite. Both in the city itself and in the vicinity of it, there are several nice accommodation points that offer motorhome owners a stay. Those interested can stay at Trysilfjell Utmarksl ag or Trysil Camp - Fredbo . The first one is right in front of the ski resort, so it's perfect for those who come to town with the intention of testing themselves on the slopes. The second campsite, on the other hand, is located by the river, and tourists staying there are close to most of the local attractions: the forest stretching nearby and the mountain peaks decorating the horizon.

Wherever we stay, we will be delighted with the beauty of the area. Trysil guarantees that, and so does snow.
