World-class, English-speaking instructors and great beginner runs make this an ideal place to learn. Once you’re ready to move up, there are green runs that start practically from the mountain peak and amble their way down – ideal for those just starting out. And since most of the accommodation is close to the slopes, you'll never have far to go when you need a break.
The grooming is spot on and the snow is incredibly consistent, so you'll have the best pistes imaginable - whether you’re taking it easy on a green, shooting around on the blues and reds, or even trying your luck on the black runs. You won’t tire of the terrain and it’s usually pretty quiet, so you'll have time for plenty of runs and lots of hot chocolate stops.
As with the easier runs, the black slopes are groomed, groomed again and then groomed once more for luck. Combine this with incredible snow conditions (and some man-made) and you have steeps that you can really go for it on. There’s also some off-piste to be found, with guides and lessons available.
Cross-country addicts will love Hemsedal - you can access the groomed tracks straight from most accommodations. The trails then head off in different directions, up the mountain, down to the valley and through the forest, so there's lots of exploring to be had. For those seeking a challenge, try out the high-mountain track which starts from Storelia and makes a circuit of the lakes beside Tinden.
