Trysil 2017/18

Thanks, I'll have a look for your report, I probably read it a few months ago when we booked but confess I may not have taken a lot of notice of the driving part at the time as we were originally going on the ski bus. Laughing We've just changed this week to a hire car after realising a taxi or transfer just to get us to and from the horse sleigh ride at Trysil Hestesenter (25km away) was going to cost over £100 on it's own(!) so that made the hire car hardly any more expensive overall, and a lot more convenient.

Just booked for Trysil for a long weekend in early March. Snow looks good for now, let's hope it holds on.
This will be the wife and I's first European skiing (just moved from the US last year) so we are pretty excited.

 Well, the person's real but it's just a made up name, see?

We have ended up booking for the last weekend in March, so will be driving up from Oslo the weekend before Easter - I'll report back if anything unusual.

@ster's experience matches a previous time I drove to Hemsedal - very easy country to drive in, almost car-advert type empty and scenic roads.

We have been to Trysil three times (with one year off to go to Finland). We stayed in both radissons but the tourists centre one is the best. Love skiing in Scandinavia, especially there being hardly any queues. Going to Austria on Saturday and can’t wait though certainly not looking forward to queues there.

In Trysil last year there wasn’t a lot of snow (about 62cm) but it was kept quite well. My biggest grumble would be all the buttons and t-bars. I understand there are so many because as the mountain has a lot of wind, they can still keep lifts going rather than having to shut down chairlifts. Have to say T9 terrifies me especially where you turn right and the green ends in a black. I lost my ski on it and watched it travelling down the mountain. I did however have my first (hopefully last) rescue skidoo ride though! That button up to the top always put my stomach in my mouth as well.

Have a great time - it’s a lovely place, especially for families.

Thanks, really looking forward to it. We're at Radisson Blu tourist center for most of the holiday but had to move over to the mountain resort for the last two nights as some corporate has booked out the entire tourist resort hotel the weekend after Easter for a conference rolling eyes

The only trouble with tourist centre we found was that when the nightclub on the top of the building kicks out in the wee small hours, people congregate at the hotel entrance and chat. Our apartment was directly above it, so if I were you, I would email them in advance flagging up that you want an apartment at the back and a lower floor. I went to reception and complained in the end as they were bloody shrieking. We did however have a generous discount of the following year's trip to mountain resort so not all bad! There are some lovely little greens over at mountain resort to get your legs warmed up first thing.

Welcome to snowheads! Norway is a non-traditional choice for a first European ski destination... But I presume you've done your homework and know the differences to the Alps. If you are based in Brighton, I'm surprised you didn't chose to go Gatwick-Åre/Ostersund with EasyJet and ski in Åre, Sweden.

Gatwick - Oslo with Norwegian most likely, that's what we're doing.

Trysil seems to be getting its fair share of snow so far this season, lets hope it keeps up into Easter when we go! Snow depth is already half a metre more than at any time in the past two seasons and another ~80cm forecast in the next 2 weeks.

Thanks!
We tend to be non-traditional travelers anyways so it's not much of a stretch. Trysil also seemed to have a good mix of harder stuff for the wife to ride with some easier stuff for me to build some confidence on. We plan on doing a big Alps trip next year with my wife's family so I wanted to check out something a bit more low-key this year while building up my skills before we go out for a week. We are flying direct to Oslo with Norwegian and taking the bus out to Trysil, which seems like a pretty easy way of doing it.

We have just returned from fab week in trysil. Drive was amazingly smooth. Roads no problem.
Brilliant resort, great conditions and quiet even though it was feb half term.
Best skiing ever. Food was pricey but we self catered and took some with us. Booked everything through SkiStar which was very efficient. Stayed in apartment near slopes.
Message me for further details.
