Why Norefjell?

Norefjell (pronounced "Nora-Fee-Yell"), made its name on the world stage back in 1952 when it hosted the Winter Olympics. Since then it has been slowly forgotten, but make no mistake this is a resort well worth discovering.

The resort is perched in the Scandes Mountain range with jaw dropping views of the Krøderen fjord below and less than 2 hours from Oslo. Here you can ski Northern Europe's greatest vertical drop (1010 metres) enjoying tree-line skiing meeting the fjord in the valley basin below.

Substantial re-investment has transformed Norefjell into a spectacular resort with superb ski-in ski-out accommodation. You're assured an exceptional skiing experience with a ski school headed up by no less than Norway's previous national ski team coach, Marius Arnesen.

This is a resort once discovered that will draw you back time and time again.
