Norefjell Resort Guide

Insider tips from our team

Why Norefjell?

Only two hours from Oslo, Norefjell is a fantastic option for families and those wanting a bit of relaxation time. The resort isn’t enormous but offers a good variety of terrain with some great off-piste and tree skiing for the more adventurous while the gentle learner slopes are near the hotel so it’s easy to break for hot chocolate.

The Skiing

Starting outside the Norefjell Ski & Spa hotel, the easy slopes lead via the lifts to the more challenging main area of the resort. There’s more terrain than a quick glance at the piste map reveals, especially if the weather is good and you can go right to the top - the views are incredible from up there too. Worth noting that to get between areas there is a bit of skating required so snowboarders may end up walking a bit. There’s even a fun small ski cross course!

Ski school starts outside the Norefjell Ski & Spa hotel with group lessons for all abilities, plus private lessons available for skiers and snowboarders looking to improve quickly.
