Fun, food and fantastic skiing in Norway's largest ski resort.
- Norway's largest ski resort, with a range of piste difficulties on both tree-lined and open alpine slopes.
- Fantastic for mixed groups and families, with other activities like winter fishing and snowmobiling available.
- High quality ski-in, ski-out accommodation spread across two main villages and four ski bases.
Norway’s best-kept ski secret, Trysil isn’t yet very well known internationally, so the slopes here are quiet and uncrowded. There’s a great mix of slopes across the four areas. Høyfjellsenter is perfect for beginners, with lots of gentle greens and a large kids area; Turistsenter also has excellent nursery slopes as well as beautiful tree-lined blues and reds for intermediates; Skihytta has a mix of beginner and intermediate pistes, great for groups; and Høgegga is the place to be for more advanced skiers, with seven steep blacks and a new high-speed chairlift. The whole mountain is very well connected, and easy and more challenging slopes can often be found side-by-side, so mixed ability groups can ski together. For tricksters and boarders, the Parken Trysil snow park is the place to play – it’s got different areas for different abilities, right up to the resort’s largest jump, Night’n.
Trysil is also arguably the best resort in Norway for families. There are three big children’s areas (Eventyr in Turistsenter, Vallegard in Høyfjellsenter and Bamse in Skihytta) with easy access and extra amenities like sledging slopes and barbeque huts. Plus the resort’s mascot, Valle the snowman, organises loads of fun activities like treasure hunts and shows.
There's no Crystal rep based in Trysil, but support is available 24/7 by phone, email or Twitter. Check out your info pack or the Ski Explorer app for details on local activities and our resort tips. We’ll send by email any vouchers if you've pre-booked lift passes, equipment hire or tuition, and give you information on how to pick up your gear so you’re ready for the mountain.
There are two main resort accommodations – the Park Inn in Høyfjellsenter and the Radisson Blu in Turistsenter – which are both high quality and have excellent facilities. Even better, nearly all the accommodation throughout Trysil is ski-in, ski-out.
Like everywhere in Norway, you can expect a very warm welcome from the locals, who all speak perfect English. There’s a great range of restaurants and bars, both on the mountain and in town, as well as off-slope activities like horse-drawn sleigh rides, dog sledding and snowshoe walking. Add in mouth-watering cuisine and breathtaking scenery wherever you look, and you’ll never want to leave.
