We were there in March 2019. Lovely friendly resort with two separate alpine ski areas. A free ski bus tours around Geilo on a regular basis. Nice eateries. Very friendly. Great cross-country skiing too. Possible to hire a mix of both alpine and cross country skis.
Great for beginners and intermediate skiers.
We will certainly visit again.
