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.

It was a wonderful friendly resort

03/05/2017 Josephine Burston

Everything just seemed to work seamlessly from the moment you arrived. Collecting ski equipment and lift tickets couldn't have been easier. Great slopes particularly for beginners but there was enough off piste skiing to satisfy all levels. Definitely not the alpine ski experience (i.e. France/Austria/America) but reminded me of skiing in Australia and such a good confidence builder for my son. Loved the snow parks with all the bumps & jumps. Maybe it was the time of year but no crowds on the slopes or at the cafes on the slopes (which were at times eyewateringly expensive but that goes with the territory). Looking forward to our next visit.

Not the most beautiful resort, but everything we needed was there. Great skiing for us as a family, as there were plenty of intermediate runs and a couple of easier black runs too, so we never felt bored.
