Kvitfjell is one of the best and most modern ski resorts in Northern Europe, an ideal place to enjoy the best moment of the day in a Jacuzzi hot tub after skiing on its beautiful courses. Located in the municipality of Ringebu, Norway, the name “Kvitfjell” means White Mountain in Norwegian. The light peak is about 600m northwest of the starting point of the FIS Alpine World Cup’ ski course and this peak contains quartzite, which gives it its white colour.
Kvitfjell is located near the river Gudbrandsdalslågenwas and it was developed for the 1994 Winter Olympics in Lillehammer, the resort offers 23 slopes: 5 green (nursery), 9 blue (beginner), 6 red (intermediate), and 3 black (advanced). Kvitfjell is also home to a terrain park and 120km of cross-country trails, with access to 480km extra in Skei and Gålå. This wide range of slopes is what really appeals to so many skiers – families with all differing skiing abilities can all come and enjoy Kvitfjell.
Kvitfjell is a regular stop on the World Cup circuit, hosting the men’s speed events in early March. The downhill course Olympiabakken was designed by Bernhard Russi for the 1994 Olympics, it is over 3km in length and it is one of the most challenging of the season. Would you be brave enough to give it a go?
