This family-run ski resort has exceptionally good service, easy-going slopes and an excellent range of non-ski activities.

Beitostølen (pronounced bait-oh-stir-len) has a down-to-earth feel. Easy to navigate, the ski area is ideal for building confidence, with dedicated beginner slopes, English speaking ski school and wide pistes for cruising.

You've also got plenty of options if the skiing doesn't go to plan, from dog sledding and swimming, to rafting down the slopes on inflatable boats. On the edge of a National Park, the setting is beautiful and the scenic cross-country trails are some of Norway’s best - this a great place to try a new discipline.

In the traditional village, everything is designed for convenience, with all amenities on the doorstep. Après-ski is low key, with live bands at weekends. All in all, Beitostølen ski holidays are perfect for first-timers and family ski trips.

Every holiday is tailor-made, just for you.

The resort was very small and quiet but suited our needs perfectly - the slopes (and therefore ski school meet) were a one minute walk across the road. Snow maintained very well on the slopes despite the snowfall having been (apparently) disappointing compared to most years. Perfect for complete beginners, it perhaps lacked enough variety for my husband and I, particularly as the third lift did not open until the last day - this was a real shame as it clearly just opened in time for the Norwegian holidays and it had been too quiet in the preceding days (but the additional slopes did offer up more variety and challenge in terms of skiing). Friendly and helpful staff on the slopes.

This is a terrific resort for beginners and families. More advanced skiers could find it limiting, given the size of the ski area and variety of available runs.

Great ski-ing for beginners. Lots of other activities available. Very quiet resort, only a small selection of shops and restaurants within walking distance.

Powder Weekend in Norway

29th January 2019 - Craig Charley

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...
