Review Detail
Small resort 2.5 hours north of Oslo. It's got a mix of difficulties, but mostly towards the easier end. While low altitude, it's fairly snow sure due to the inland location and northerly latitude.

The raw numbers don't do it justice - there is more to do here than it looks on paper. While vertical height is not huge, fast lifts and short queues even in peak times like half term means that you can get a lot in a day. It's a family oriented resort, and with many more skiers than boarders. Unlike some resorts I've been two you seem to get fewer idiots bombing right past ski schools on the red runs.

The entire area is linked (with a new chairlift coming 2017 to make it easier) meaning there's no need for a car or local buses to get around the whole mountain.

Show while we are there has been good at the top, icy in the middle and slushy at the bottom, and there was fresh snow even this late. The main lifts are fast modern chair lifts, and these do tend to have queues at peak times, but rarely more than a few minutes. There's also a lot of surface lifts - these are OK but always going to be a bit of a pain on a board. Lift staff are good - they have a separate 'single rider' queue which can be used to get back up fast, and ensures the lifts operate with all the seats full most of the time, and the staff make sure the lift run efficiently.

There's a range of accommodation from full-board to self-catered split across three main points, each with their own key lifts.

Eating out is expensive - the best options are in the tourist centre or on the mountain - but there are 'warm huts' so you can bring food - they even have microwaves.
