Trysil is Norway’s largest ski destination.
Trysil is situated close to the Swedish border, about two and a half hours from Oslo. Here, you’ll find Norway’s biggest ski resort, which offers a varied set of challenges, regardless of whether you’re looking for wide slopes, terrain parks, off-piste, or some other form of fun in the snow.
Trysil consists of one large ski area – the mountain’s three faces are linked by lifts and slopes. The highest point is 1,132 metres above sea level, and from the top you can see many kilometres in each direction.
If you want to go cross-country skiing, you can enjoy no less than 100 kilometres of groomed cross-country tracks around the mountain. One of the first-known, organized ski races was held here 22 January 1862.
