NOREFJELL MOUNTAIN

There is no need for fearing lack of snow. The advanced snowmaking installations will provide that more than 9 km of the most popular trails are open. The snow-cannons draw water directly from the lake Krøderen, and the pump-capacity is as much as 6.000 litres per minute. The lift capacity is also impressive. Almost 14.000 people per hour. In other words; not much time is spent standing in line.

Norefjell, the high mountain closest to Oslo, only 1,5 hours drive, but not only a winter resort, offers many attractions for young and old. The 1952 Olympic Winter Games opened up this modern alpine resort boasting 11 skilifts and 24 km of downhill runs, from easy to tough ones, with a max. elevation difference of 1,010 metres.

There are good possibilities for offpiste skiing in a somewhat demanding and varied forest terrain. Additionally, separate area for children with it's own lift, and snowboard area.
