Scenery, quality and guaranteed snow are the key ingredients to a destination that is big on families and ideal for beginners...
Norway's ski resorts are under two hours flying time from the UK and offer the security that ski conditions will be excellent throughout the entire long season. Not only that, accommodation standards are very high, equipment is superbly managed and maintained, and you won't find queues for ski lifts and food outlets during your stay. In fact, the slopes are generally quiet, giving you the feeling that you have them all to yourself. And the scenery is stunning, with unspoilt vistas, pine covered slopes and icy lakes all around.
Tuition is friendly, with English-speaking instructors for adults and children of all ages, coupled with free lift passes for kids in many resorts, and often free helmets.
In addition to the ski and snowboard slopes, there is a full range of additional winter sports activities to indulge in, such as sledging and Nordic skiing, and you can of course partake in a Norwegian sauna.
