Alpine - Hafjell

The skiing facility stretches from 200 metres above sea level to 1050 metres, with 23 km of pistes varying in difficulty. There are a total of 9 lifts -- 3 of which are four-seat chair lifts and 2 of which are express lifts (for 3.5-4 km of uninterrupted skiing pleasure). Total lift capacity is 12,500 persons per hour.

The top of Hafjell is an excellent starting point for Cross-country skiing. No charge for Cross-country skiers on both express lifts.

The Hafjell Alpine Centre was built for the Olympic Winter Games in Lillehammer, and there are slopes suitable for professional skiers, as well as families with children and pensioners. Hafjell is easily accessible whether you are travelling via the Oslo International Airport, by boat to Oslo or by car. The car trip from Oslo takes about two and a half hours (2 hours from Oslo International Airport).

Start your trip by letting the gondola carry you up in the mountains, or choose Hafjelltoppen as your starting point. High-quality trails leading to Sjusjøen, Nordseter and Lillehammer. Altitude differences are relatively small for all routes. Most trails run above the tree-line, and all you have to do is glide across the white plateaus! The Rognhaugen – Keiken route offers the best mountain views.

The stable inland climate here in Hafjell provides excellent skiing conditions all winter long, with a ski season stretching normally from November to the end of April. The slopes are well-protected against the wind and snow-making equipment covers more than 80 % of the facility.

Hafjell has become Norway’s third largest alpine centre with 400 000 ski days Winter 08/09. Before you arrive at Keiken, you can enjoy the panoramic views of Øyerfjellet - with Rondane as a backdrop. The trail leading towards Rognhaugen provides excellent shelter from the wind.
