All Mountain Terrain
We really enjoyed our time in Trysil. Great site for new skiers who could work their way up in difficulty comfortably. Could be very expensive; the self catering options are vital so we got on the plane with all our wine, snacks and indeed frozen meat. Service great.... Full Review
The most comfortabel ski resort I have seen i Europe (skied in more than 20 resorts i the Alps + most of the resorts in Sweden). You put on the skies in the morning and only take them of for lunch. No gondolas, cabins or stairs to walk carrying your skies. Almost all accomodation is ski in/out. Hardly any lift ques. Extremly good snow quality and exellently groomd slopes every night. The shape of the mountain is perfect for those of us who like carving. Good opportunities for easy accessable off pist skiing without avalanche risks.... Full Review
I had a look at the trail map and liked what I saw: quite a number of red runs and fair number of black ones. So I went there. Only to be disappointed with the color coding.
Compared to the French and Austrian (F&A), the Norwegian classification should be scaled down one step. Green = as good as completely flat (cross-country skiing or langlaufen as it also called), blue = the F&A absolute beginner's runs, red = the F&A blue, and black = the F&A red. I have seen only one and a half black runs that were really black. The rest wasn't black at all. So, for a good skier it gets boring very quickly.
Furthermore, as good as no après skiing and no nightlife on weekdays. No more Trysil for me, despite the friendly and service-minded people. Sorry. ... Full Review
As I've already stated fantastic for families, teenagers, or emerging wrinkler like myself who has skied around the world for 60 years. Few hotels in resort, more in village which is an easy walk from the Tourist Centre.
The pistes will entertain any intermediate skier with a variety of runs, some through trees, several fast steep black runs, nothing like the double diamonds in Canada but still great fun. Waiting times at most life are minimal during the week and non holiday periods, evening skiing can be very busy. We asked Ski Safari to arrange all travel and accommodation - no problems, great organisation.
Looking forward to next season when a new high speed chairlift will be in operation opening up another part of the mountain.

cosy, relaxed and silent. ideal for big families. not for youngsters looking for afterski like in the alps. runs are prepared to perfection. ski production is very promt, but snow is scarce and often icy conditions. lifts works with nordic precision, connections are very good. not much offpiste opportunities but pists are perfect for speeding. usually windy at the top which is why the area cant be used with its total number of runs. best in march even april to enjoy spring skiing....

The accommodation and scenery was simply great, as well as the snow coverage - it snowed non-stop for the first four days of the trip. Probably due to that reason the upper runs were closed and the resort personnel had tough time keeping the runs in order. Nevertheless, it provided a very good chance for off-piste skiing.
The lift system could be newer only 3 chairlifts.
Probably due to heavy snow and fog, but finding your way on the pistes was terrible. The only signs about piste numbers were on the piste crossings and covered with snow. On a longer stretch you could never be sure on which piste you are.
Skibus service could also be a lot better. There are only 3 skibuses in the afternoon and a high chance that you will not get in the one that's leaving right after the lifts close.
Finally, superb night skiing.... Full Review
