Trysil Ski Breaks Overview

Trysil holds the crown as Norway’s largest alpine resort. Four varied ski areas are seamlessly linked by 75km of beautifully groomed pistes with skiing and snowboarding for all levels. Norway is known for its uncrowded runs and a ski break in Trysil is no exception. Lift queues are blissful compared to those in Europe and you may even find a slope all to yourself.

Two main village areas sit either side of the mountain (as well as two smaller areas) and this is where the majority of the accommodation, bars and restaurants are located. Most hotels in Trysil are conveniently next to the slopes, so all you need to do is pop on your skis and away you go.

As an added benefit - it’s snow sure! There aren't many places to guarantee snow but Trysil does. They are so confident about the snowfall they receive each season that they promise you’ll get a minimum descent of at least 20km to ski on. We like the sound of that.

Skiing in Trysil

Forested runs encircle the base of the mountain for some fantastic tree-lined skiing whilst wide open pistes perch on top, offering spectacular views for miles around. Unusually the volcano shaped mountain offers 360 degrees of linked skiing so you can follow the sun around the mountain if you so desire.

Skiing in Trysil is geared towards beginners and intermediates but there is still something for the more advanced skier. Some of the world’s best skiers often use the black slopes of Høgegga to train on, where one of the runs (Run 75) is on a 45-degree slope. Or there are three snow parks of varying levels dotted around the resort so whether you’re a newbie on the jumps or a fully-fledged expert, you’ll be able to find something to challenge yourself.

From mid-December to April, night skiing is available until 8pm three days a week (Monday, Wednesday and Fridays).

They also have early morning skiing on Wednesdays and Saturdays from 2nd February till 20th March. You can get onto the slopes 2 hours before the lifts open and the price includes breakfast on the mountain.

The ski bus is free for those with a valid lift pass and takes you from one area to another but it’s easy to navigate around the slopes so you'll find you rarely use it.

Après ski

Après ski in Trysil is a fairly relaxed affair but there are a few places to go out and it is generally livelier at the weekends. Turistsenter has a good selection of pubs and après bars including the Ski Pub’n or Laaven 1790 where you can dance on the tables at the bottom of the slopes as the sun sets.

More pubs and restaurants are spread across all four of the villages but most of them are in the two main areas of Turistsenter and Høyfjellssenter. There’s plenty of choices so you can eat something different every night.

Trysil proudly boasts itself as a great all-round family resort, there’s as much to do off the slopes as there is on so make sure you don’t miss out on the dog sledding, sleigh rides or star gazing.

Accommodation in Trysil

We only feature hotels in Trysil so no log cabins here I’m afraid. Both hotels are ski in, ski out one in either of the two main villages. They are large hotels with a superb range of facilities including swimming pools and spas to cater perfectly for that post-ski soak.
