Day 1. Oslo - Lillehammer

Of the three international airports serving Oslo, Gardermoen is the biggest and closest to the city, 30mins to the North.

Oslo Torp sits 1hr 45mins away on the South West side of Oslofjord, while Oslo Rygge, is an hour to the South East on the opposite bank.

The trip to Lillehammer as very straight forward and can be done easily by road or rail.  From Oslo Gardermoen it should take 2hrs.

Day 2. Hafjell

Hafjell is the biggest resort in the Lillehammer Valley and the third biggest in Norway.

With wide, open, and often empty slopes, it is the perfect playground for families and intermediates to hone their skills.

Two parks and a rail garden should be enough for the jibbers out there, while expert riders can test themselves racing down the Olympic GS slope.

Away from the slopes, Hafjell is relatively quiet and not as developed as you might expect from an International resort.  With Lillehammer just 15mins drive away however, you can find an array of shops, bars and restaurants to keep you entertained.

Highlights in the area include a visit to the Ski Jump and trying the Olympic Bob sled track.

Day 3. Sjusjøen

Sjusjøen is a 35min drive up into the mountains from Lillehammer.  It is an area popular with criss country skiers but the small downhill centre can offer some fantastic off-piste when the conditions are right.

Drive a little beyond the ski centre, heading towards Sweden, you will come across a huge frozen lake with dog-sledding trips.

Day 4. Gålå

The drive North from Lillehammer to Gålå should take under 1hr 30mins.

With skiing on two moutains, stretching up on either side of a lake, Gålå is a very pretty resort connected with it's natural surroundings.

348m vertical drop from the highest lift at 1148m with 20km of slopes.

 

Day 6. Skeikampen

A 45min drive from Lillehammer or 30min from Hafjell, Skeikampen is popular with alpine skiiers and cross country enthusiasts.

With 21 km of slopes Skeikampen is serviced by 9 lifts and offers good family skiing.  When there are fresh lines to be had however, the resort takes on a whole different look with some great off-piste terrain.  Stand at the top, choose your next lift, and pick your line.

Day 7. Kvitfjell

Kvitfjell is a regular stop on the Downhill World Cup Tour and offers some of the most challenging in bounds terrain in Norway.

Ski 854m of vertical and try the Downhill slope with enough here to entertain beginners through to pro's.
