Set in a serene region of fjords and frozen lakes, this modern resort opened in 2003. Myrkdalen is growing each year, yet it is still fairly unknown, with uncrowded slopes and a snow-sure ski area 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 runs.

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.

Approximately two hours from the airport, Myrkdalen is a great option to combine with Bergen, Voss and Geilo for a Norwegian ski safari, while the local fjords and the village of Flåm make for a magical day trip or even an overnight stay.

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

"This up-and-coming ski resort is in Norway’s spectacular Fjord region. With an average snowfall of five metres a year, the snow sure terrain is fantastic for both beginners and experts."
