Relatively undiscovered, Myrkdalen is blissfully uncrowded, with quiet slopes for beginners and untracked off-piste for the adventurous.

Set in a serene region of fjords and frozen lakes, this modern resort opened in 2003. Still fairly unknown, Myrkdalen has grown each year, creating an uncrowded ski area that’s snow-sure from December to May.

If you’re an expert skier, don’t let the small piste area put you off - there's more off-piste terrain than you might expect. For beginners, the quiet slopes are ideal for building confidence, while intermediates can look forward to some of Europe’s best snow on the wide cruisey slopes.

Below the ski area is the ski-in ski-out Myrkdalen Hotel. This is the hub of the resort, with three restaurants and a couple of bars. Après activities include sledging, sleigh rides and, our personal favourite, indoor skydiving at the local wind tunnel.

Less than two hours from the airport, Myrkdalen ski holidays are a great option to combine with Bergen and Geilo for a Norwegian ski safari, while the local fjords and Flåm make for a magical day trip or even overnight stay.

Read Matt Carroll's account of his daughter's first ski holiday (and his first time on skis!) in Myrkdalen for the Evening Standard or learn more about the lesser-known off-piste opportunities in Fall-Line Skiing Magazine.

Every holiday is tailor-made, just for you.

I'm an experienced skier with little off-piste experience and found this mountain a perfect weekend retreat for me. It's an astonishingly beautiful landscape and an unpretentious resort that lets you get right down to the skiing business, which suited me perfectly. I'd recommend this for serious skiers who want a lot of variety and challenge over the course of the day. There's so much to explore and the snow cover & depth is outstanding -- and I heard from some locals that this wasn't even a particularly good winter for snowfall! The powder was up to the knee in some places, so I can't imagine the fun I'd have in an above-average winter. Not recommended for novices, though. The unsettled weather, which can sometimes create low visibility situations in off-piste terrain, demands a certain stamina. And whilst there are bunny slopes, they're not the most well-loved parts of the mountain.

An Unbelievable Year With Ski Safari

23rd May 2019 - Jack Scotford-Smith

My journey with Ski Safari all started with one email, before a job vacancy was even advertised… “ Dear Ski Safari, I love skiing. Please hire me ”. Having worked two seasons in Tignes in the French Alps, I knew that I desperately wanted to work in the ski industry when I returned home. I have...

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...
