We have been going to Hemsedal for the last 17 years. On average we ski for three to four weeks a year in Hemsedal. We have two young boys now aged 13 and 14 who enjoy the whole slopes, which are quiet, uncrowded and provide a really enjoyable ski experience.
Over the years I have skied in many different countries, 10 so far and still counting. I can honestly say, if you want quite slopes, very few lift queues and plenty of vertical, then this is a great place to go. If you want the steep and deep I can think of better places, but for a family holiday without the stresses of trying to keep everyone happy this is in my view, as good as it gets.
Beware very cold January and February, although we have had -36c in March.
This year we went at Christmas and are going again over Easter (last two weeks of April) and can be certain of snow, even that late in the season.
