Trysil Trysilfjellet Resort

Norway’s biggest ski resort, Trysil’s near the border to Sweden and about two and a half hours out of Oslo.

It’s been around for a while - the local ski club, Trysilgutten, is the world’s oldest ski club (having opened in 1861) and one of the first ever ski races took place here in 1862.

Everything’s built around the Trysil Mountain (or Trysilfjellet), with the main village bases being Trysil Turistsenter on the south side and Trysil Høyfjellssenter on the north side. The Turistsenter is the larger of the two, with Høyfjellssenter a good option for families for its gentle runs and excellent activities for sprogs. There’s also Trysil Town, a couple of kilometres from the ski resort on the banks of the Trysil River. All have their fair share of restaurants, bars, shops and accommodation – a mix of hotels, apartments and cabins – and all are connected by a ski bus.

When it comes to getting here, the Trysilekspressen bus runs between Oslo Gardermoen airport and the ski area. The resort doesn’t have its own train station, but the nearest is Elverum which is also served by the Trysilekspressen.

Skiing/BoardingSkiing in Trysil Trysilfjellet

The four ski areas here - Turistsenter, Høyfjellssenter, Høgegga and Skihytta - almost manage to cover the entire mountain.

Trysil Turistsenter (the nearest to the main hotels) can be found on the south face of the mountain. It’s home to the Eventyr kid’s ski area - the larger of Trysil’s two children’s areas with a magic carpet, ski carousel, mini jumps and much more. This is also where you’ll find Parken Trysil, which has green, red and black lines, as well as family-friendly features at Blåparken. Piste-wise, there’s a good mix of gladed beginner and intermediate terrain – blue #61 makes for a great confidence booster as you ski or snowboard back to the base station.

Over on the northern side is Høyfjellssenter, home to another kids ski area with a lovely forest piste. Green runs stream down the mountainside here, both above and between the tree line.

The Høgegga area is expert central, where wide black runs have gradients of up to 45° – most groomed, some left to the whims of Mother Nature. Other skiers aren’t forgotten, with greens #31 and #32 that cross over towards the Turistsenter and blue #84 that wiggles onto blue #36 for a cruise down to the bottom.

Skihytta’s lower lifts best serve beginners, with more for intermediates and experts as you climb the mountain. There’s a gorgeously long blue (#1 on the piste map) that links up to black #2 for added challenge, or connects with other blues for long runs to Skihytta or the Turistsenter.

The off piste opportunity isn’t enormous, but a local guide will be able to show you the best of it according to your level and the current conditions.

Trysil Trysilfjellet Apres Ski

Apres ski comes to life on Fridays and Saturdays, when Puben Sankt Olav in Høyfjellssenter hosts its live music performances and the DJ’s at Laaven in the Turistsenter create a big party scene.

The Ski Pub does simple favourites like pizza and nachos and the Loftet Bar has an American inspired menu. The Big Horn Steakhouse has restaurants all over Norway and does brilliant steaks, ribs and burgers. Happy Faces is the place to go for sushi and veggie dishes.

In Høyfjellssenter, families will love the Pilegrimen restaurant which has a kid’s corner with games and films (not to mention an incredible weekly Grill Buffet).

There’s no shortage of activities, from dog sledding and sleigh rides through the forest to spas, bowling and a cinema.

Best time to visit & ski Trysil Trysilfjellet

Being able to ski in almost all directions here means you can follow the sun throughout the day. The Skihytta area tends to get the most sunlight hours, making it a good option in the middle of winter when the daylight hours are low. Night skiing lets the area stay open even when the sun’s gone down, ensuring everyone gets their fill of slope time. Early morning skiing is often available in the springtime too. In recent years, the resort has had a snow guarantee, promising that at least 8km of runs will be open at the beginning of the season (between November and December) then extending the guarantee for the rest of the season to include 20km of slopes and the ability to ski between Turistsenter and Trysil Høyfjellssenter without having to step out of your bindings.

Families in Trysil Trysilfjellet

The Høyfjellssenter area is brilliant for families, with oodles of green pistes and a special children’s area with its forest run, heated shelter and BBQ huts. Apres ski around here is very child oriented – we love the films and games area at Restaurant Pilegrimen which’ll keep them busy while you sit back with a tipple. It also helps that the locals speak such excellent English, making the whole place feel homely.

GroupsGroup Holidays Trysil Trysilfjellet

Norway’s largest ski resort is great for groups – even if you’re a mixture of different abilities, you can still enjoy the same ski area, meeting at the top and bottom of the lifts then enjoying your chosen pistes in between. Apres ski bars like Laaven are on hand when it comes to letting your hair down at the end of the day, and there are group activities galore from sleigh rides to dog sledding.
