Kvitfjell Ski Holidays

The world’s best skiers come here to train & race every winter and yet Kvitfjell is relatively undiscovered by recreational skiers. That means you can access world-class slopes with limited queues.

Norway is renowned for great snow conditions and Kvitfjell stands out as one of its most snowsure resorts. It is consistently one of the first ski resorts to open and the last to close.

At Kvitfjell (pronounced quit-fee-yell) the snow arrives in mid-November and stays all the way through until late April. Originally developed for the downhill alpine events at the 1994 Lillehammer Winter Olympics, it's now a regular venue on the Alpine Skiing World Cup circuit. The Olympiabakken downhill course (designed by Berhard Russi) is highly regarded among the world’s best skiers. The consistent snowfall, long season and combination of world-class slopes make it a ski enthusiast’s dream.

Ski holidays in Kvitfjell aren't just for experts though. There’s also a wonderful range of wide-open slopes and gentle terrain for less technical skiers which are perfect for learning and building confidence. Many of the slopes are pretty tree-lined runs with beautiful views of Gudbrandsdalen, Rondane and into the Jotunheimen National Park. The scenery from the area provided inspiration for Henrik Ibsen’s fairy-tale stories about Per Gynt.

Three distinct sides make up the ski area: the newly expanded Varden area, Kvitfjell Vest (west) and the original ski area of Kvitfell itself - home to the Olympic downhill. The modern lift system allows you to easily access the full ski area and terrain to suit all levels of ability. Excellent on-mountain dining options complement the all-round experience: from the traditional Norwegian cabins at Tyrihanstunet & Koia to modern cafes like Plaza & Gondolen Fjellbistro.

Every holiday is tailor-made, just for you.
