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!!
