I have been going to Hafjell for the past 4 Christmas's with over 100 Irish school children. The slopes are excellent as are instructors and staff, nothing ever seems too much trouble. We stay in Birbebeinern in Lilehammer,15mins from slopes. Excellent accomodation, food and staff. Back again in 4 weeks with another 100 young people...can't wait!!

For the kids:
HafjellParken is building a new park for the youngest park riders, and it will be ready for the season opening. The park will contain a 100m lift with two different rail lines with different difficulty. The parks location is at Mosetertoppen; the best location in Hafjell.
Where the riders want to be:
Hafjell want to make HafjellParken a even better place to be. They are building a new house where you can take some time off from riding in Hafjells best view. Music and wireless Internet access is there, so you can easily check your facebook status and upload your photos from your phone:)
Backyard and the Railpark:
Last year's opening of Backyard was a success form day one. Hafjell are now putting in more lifts and have mores shaping hours to spend there to keep up with the massive use of the park.
Hafjell are also upgrading our rails and buying a lot of new ones. New snow makers is put up in the rail park, so They are aiming for a early start.

Just returned from New Year holiday skiing Hafjell - excellent resort for 2 intermediates, superb snow & pisting long flattering runs & no lift queues - even on hol Saturdays - lots of English spoken but still a nice friendly Scandinavian atmosphere - stay in Hafjell or Hundersfossen resort - near the Olympic bob run - save time on the transfer busses plus you get first morning runs and night skiing.

Hafjell is very comparable to resorts in the USA. Excellent rental staff, many of them speak excellent English. Very cold when we visited in early March, but the runs were well groomed and everyone was most friendly and welcoming. If you want an excellent ski experience comparable to anything in the USA, ski here at Hafjell. Very family friendly, yet challenging enough for a former competitive downhill racer.

We are just back from a week skiing in Hafjell. It was fantastic. We had being skiing twice before so the slopes here were perfect for us. There is a good few green and blue slopes and you can ski on these right from the top of the mountain down or if you are a bit braver you can take a red/black route down so it caters for all. We had an 11 year old and a 15 year old with us and they loved it as they could do some off-piste skiing through forests. We did five days of ski school 90 mins a day and it was well worth it and Eric, our instructor, was fantastic. We stayed in Lillehammer and got the ski bus up each day. I would highly recommend you do the husky dog trip while over there; well worth it. Norway is more expensive than Ireland or UK so be prepared to fork out a bit more for food and drink. We will definitely return.

The ski area at Hafjell has expanded over the past few years, and with the addition of a gondola, there are a good number of varied runs for all ski levels. There are also more "family" and nursery runs and the childcare is excellent. This is definitely the place to introduce your young family to skis (or boards).

Hafjell has a limited skiarea, but with a smashing skiing ! The sloopes are very very long making good runs. Some very steep. 50 km north is KVITFJELL incl in liftcard home for Olympic Downhill -92. The downhill race is even more awful to take than Kitzbuhls. After a trtemedous downhill you land in a pub.Then take the lift up again. Close to Kvitfjell is one of the worlds finest oldset STAVchurches from Vikingtime. A nice exiting skiarea. Kvitfjell can be reached by train from Oslo landing by the main lift !!!
