Ski Resorts in Norway

Winter sport and the people of Norway is just a perfectly natural combination.

In Norway, most of the country is mountains and forests. These are the best conditions for going skiing.

It is not unusable to see Norwegians in the capital walking around in January darkness and 12 degrees Fahrenheit, carrying skis like you'd have a briefcase. Everyone thinks it's normal behaviour to stand with skis at metro stops. It's simply part of their life.

Skiing in Norway

Norway always ends at the top of medal winners in the winter Olympics. In 1994 Lillehammer was the host of the Winter Olympics, and in 2016 Lillehammer will host the Winter Youth Olympics.

Today it is said that Norwegians are born with skis on their feet. It is not entirely true, but skiing is significant as a family activity and the number one winter sport in Norway. Most children start learning the skill when they are very young, and Norwegians rush to the mountains and forests to ski every chance they get.

As the above clarifies, Norway is a paradise for winter sports lovers, and the resorts here make your winter sport dreams real.
