Trysil Ski Holidays

Trysil is blessed with fantastic snow conditions and wide, uncrowded slopes. The locals are polite, friendly and speak superb English - for me, that’s a perfect combination for a ski holiday.

One of Norway’s best family resorts and its largest ski area, Trysil has wide pistes, easy-going terrain and guaranteed snow cover.

With a high proportion of confidence-boosting greens and blues, Trysil (pronounced tree-sill) is widely regarded as Norway’s best family resort. Children under seven ski for free, and the kids’ ski areas feature magic carpets, forest trails and a talking tree. In several sections, different graded pistes run almost in parallel, so all levels can start and finish together.

Steeped in ski heritage, Trysil hosted some of the very first downhill ski racing in 1862. It's also very scenic, with tree-lined lower slopes and panoramic peak views of elk-filled forests.

From restaurants and shops, to ski schools and childcare, you'll find everything you need in the main hubs of Turistsenter and Høyfjellsenter (also known as Fageråsen). The après-ski bars are fairly laid back, and the water park at Turistsenter’s Radisson Blu has an indoor surf wave.

Confident in the area’s snowfall, Trysil gives a guaranteed snow promise throughout the season. It's qualities like this that make Trysil ski holidays popular with Norwegians and Swedes. It’s never too busy but, to make the most of the uncrowded weekday slopes, we can schedule your holiday for Sunday to Friday.

Every holiday is tailor-made, just for you.

4th visit to this resort!! We like the wide pistes which aren't too busy even in school holidays. Good selection of runs (for daring kids and a scenic green runs for mum!!) Fab restaurant at Knetsettra. Fab views.

We thought the resort was excellent. Plenty of varied skiing for the whole family - the children all skied black runs which they were very proud of, and all near enough that we could ski happily while the children had lessons. All staff very friendly and kind. Plenty of lifts and very few queues. The only criticism would be that food in the various restaurants was all a bit the same - lots of burgers, but then that kept the kids happy.

Trysil was a fabulous resort with a multitude of different levels of runs to choose from, plenty of fresh snow and a great ski school.

A First Time Skier, Learning in Scandinavia

I’m something of a rarity at Ski Safari, in that I joined as a complete novice when it comes to skiing! Since joining the team in July 2016, my colleagues have imparted a lot of valuable knowledge and their passion for skiing has been so infectious that I’ve been dying to get out and see what all...

Epic January Conditions All Over

26th January 2018 - Craig Charley

What a start to the year it's been. From Canada to Japan via Switzerland, resorts are reporting metre-plus snowfall for the past week. We're not even halfway through the season yet, but 20 of our resorts have already passed the five metre mark and one of them is very close to an unbelievable 10...
