Trysil, Norway


Most Scandinavian ski resorts are spread across several peaks with limited or no interconnections between ski areas, but Trysil is an exception to this. This makes it suitable for families and groups who can ski different areas according to ability and then meet up for lunch or whatever.

The skiing is a mixture of open mountain and tree line skiing. Most of the downhill skiing is intermediate, but Trysil is famous for piste 75, the top part of which drops 220m at a 45 degree angle straight down the north face of the mountain to Hogegga. The cross country skiing is excellent, with a wide variety of trails.

Trails: 75 km
Lifts: 6 (+ 25 surface lifts)

    Does anyone know if the new lifts in Trysil for children are ready for this coming season or they just start building them?!

    A little info here:

    We haven’t decided between Trysil and Sälen and children facility is key to our decision. However – really love both places – and the kids do too!!

    Trysil is an extremely nice place for beginners but also for pro’s. The cabins are cosy and many of them have ski-in/out. I have visited Trysil three times when i was a beginner but i would like to go there again as they have also many black trails that i would like to try out.

    Trysil is without doubt the best skiresort in Scandinavia. The entire resort is centered on only one mountain instead of multiple peaks. This makes the resort very accessible for every level of skiers. The resort fits both experienced as well as beginners. There are some black tracks those who wants a challenge, however most of the tracks will suit beginners perfectly.
    I’ve been to this resort about 4 times, and it is where I started skiing myself. In recent years I’ve traveled here with my family, because my younger brothers also needed a beginner friendly resort to learn how to go skiing. Even though the area didn’t challenge me that much, I enjoyed the trip and the resort. I could go on a couple of hours of solo runs, while my family went to ski school.
    Overall I really like Trysil and I would definitely recommend this place to everyone who wants to start skiing.

    I’ve been to Trysil about six times. It is the perfect place for families with children, or new skiiers.
    The area is big for Scandinavia, and even though it is a perfect area for beginners, experts also can have a lot of fun. There are some quite steep slopes. The area is well connected and you can easily ski back home for lunch or a cup of hot chocolate.
