Family-friendly Trysil is the largest and most varied skiing destination in Norway, with 66 slopes and 31 lifts. In Trysil, the whole family can take the same lift to the top of a slope and then choose different pistes of varying degrees of difficulty back down again. Green, red, blue and black runs are all available, and are all perfectly prepared. This makes it even easier for all the family to go skiing together.
Trysil consists of one large skiing area. The mountain's three faces are tied together by lifts and slopes. There are three routes over the mountain, and the quickest way to make the trip is on the Hesten and Kanken ski lifts, which will carry you up to a height of 1,100 metres above sea level. From the top, you can see for miles and miles in all directions. Trysil is also home to one of Norway's best and largest terrain parks.
The season starts early in Trysil. Skiing begins as early as 31 October and the season lasts up until 2 May. Fortunately, snow coverage is never a problem. If necessary, the resort can fire up the largest and most advanced snow‐production equipment in Norway. All in all, this means more than 150 skiing days for you -- and just as many nights preparing the pistes for the people working at the resort. On Fridays, Sundays and Tuesdays, you can go evening skiing at Trysil. You can enjoy skiing on floodlit slopes until 8 pm. If you would like an extra‐early start to your day, the resort offers early morning skiing every Wednesday and Saturday from 10 February until 10 April. Early morning skiing is for early birds who want to start the day with a good breakfast in Høgegga and then head off onto the newly prepared pistes. This offer is only open to small groups, to allow you to experience the exclusive feeling of having the slopes to yourself for a few hours. Just remember to book the day before.
Holidays in Trysil should be fun for children too. To make sure that skiing is as safe and as much fun as possible, the resort has set up three large children's areas where they can ski to their heart's content in safe and secure surroundings. All of the children's slopes even out at the end of the run, and the lifts are easy for even the youngest visitors to use. The Smottes -- the Trysil mascots -- are out on the slopes in the winter and come up with all kinds of fun and games for the children to enjoy. Trysil also offers day‐care for children and the ski school runs a number of courses for young skiers.
