This past weekend has seen bumper snowfall in Norway - up to half a metre in places - resulting in heaps of fun on the slopes.

Sadly, none of our team were there to enjoy it, but we've heard great things from our customers and from the resorts themselves.

Geilo

'Magical' is the right word to describe Geilo after 63 cm of snowfall. Imagine waking up to this before heading up the mountain!

Norefjell

Is this Norway or Japan? These faceshots in Norefjell are about as deep as it gets!

Hemsedal

One of our favourite lesser-known destinations for off-piste powder, don't be fooled by Hemsedal's piste map - there's plenty for experts in the trees. Especially after 50 cm of snow...

Beitostølen

Beitostølen isn't top of our list for a powder trip, but a fresh helping of 44 cm of snow keeps the resort looking like a winter wonderland - perfect for a first winter holiday.

Voss

The caption below loosely translates to "not a bad start to a Saturday" and we can't disagree. 42 cm in Voss followed by beautiful sunshine over the fjords.

Myrkdalen

Scandinavia's snowiest resort, Myrkdalen didn't have a huge amount of snow over the past week but a 142 cm snowfall total in January means there's still heaps of fresh to be found in the extensive off-piste.

Trysil

Again to act as translator, Trysil had a "wonderful start to the week" yesterday. Bright blue skies today mean perfect conditions for those on the slopes.

One of the handful of non-skiers before joining Ski Safari, I've now skied in North America, Europe and Asia and can't imagine a winter without at least one ski trip!
