The Trysil ski resort pleases tourists with “long snow”, the skiing season here lasts until the beginning of May, and opens at the end of October. All this time, a thick layer of excellent fluffy snow lies on the slopes. The local authorities are so confident in the local climate and their own snow cannons that they officially undertake to return the money to tourists if the tracks are not ready.
How to get to Trysil
According to Wholevehicles, the resort is located in Norway, 210 km from the capital. Getting to Trysil (or Trisil, as the resort is sometimes called in Russian transcription) is equally easy from Gardermoen Airport in Oslo, and Bromma Airport in Stockholm. Several times a day from there, as well as from the Swedish city of Gothenburg, tourists are taken to the resort by an express bus. From Stockholm and Gothenburg it departs only during the ski season, on Thursdays, Fridays and Sundays, and from Oslo all year round from platform B18. Prices for it are quite peculiar: official sources prefer to indicate the cost of a trip from the capital of Norway and back with a ski pass for the day. All this will cost the traveler 60 EUR one way (90 EUR round trip) plus 50 EURfor a plastic card for a ski pass (if not preserved from previous visits), travel time – 3.5 hours.
There is also bus number 130 to Trysil, which is boarded at the Oslo bus station and at the Gardermoen airport. Both the Trysil Express and this bus pass the town of Elverum along the way. You can get to it from the capital of Norway, from the bus station and from the airport, in 2-2.5 hours and 35-45 EUR by bus number 135, 670. It is possible to get to this town by rail, with a change in Hamar. Travel time will be the same, 2-2.5 hours, the cost ranges from 35 to 50 EUR, depending on the conditions of booking and ticket purchase. Elverum and Trysil are interconnected by plying ski buses.
Trails in Trysil
This resort is especially loved by couples with children and beginner skiers. Although this does not mean at all that those who ride confidently have nothing to do in these parts. There are slopes for both experienced skiers and experts, and for snowboard fans organized snowparks, including the famous Parken, half-pipes and ski jumps. In total, there are 71 km of ski runs, of which 21 km are very simple green runs, 17 km of blue and red (for beginners and intermediate skill levels) and 11 km of black, for experts who are ready to move down the slope of 45 degrees.
There are slopes that are open three nights a week for skiing, there are slopes prepared for early risers. All of them are served by 31 ski lifts and are divided into 4 major ski areas.
The Turistsenter region has slopes of all difficulty levels, separate parks for children, including a special children’s zone Eventyr, and a park for the whole family.
Høyfjellssenter on the northern part of the mountain is generally called the “family El Dorado”. What is one Smottenpark worth, where instructors dressed as folklore characters Smotts play with the kids.
The Skihytta area is interesting for beginners and more experienced skiers: it is almost always sunny here, there is a lot of open hilly space that allows you to hone your skills and develop decent speed. But those who are ready to conquer the black slopes go to Høgegga.
As the advertisement says, a ski pass in Trysil is not just a pass to the lifts. This can be trusted: in addition to free travel on ski buses, buying a weekly ski pass (6-8 days) entitles you to one-day skiing in the Swedish resort of Sälen. This type of “not just a pass” costs EUR 440 for an adult (anyone over 16 years old is considered such) and EUR 350 for teenagers (from 7 to 15) and seniors (over 65). Children under 6 ride for free, but only with a helmet.
Attractions and attractions in Trysil
Despite the abundance of slopes that are interesting for already experienced skiers, the resort is primarily aimed at families with children. Perhaps this explains the very small number of discos and noisy nightclubs (there are only three of them in the whole town): in the evenings, Trysil becomes calm and a little sleepy. Of course, there is a bowling center, cafes, bars where you can have a glass or two and dance, but in general, everything here is focused on active and healthy recreation.
Sunrise on the slopes, nighttime torchlight rides, unofficial snowboard competitions, speed ski races, endless activities for children including sleigh rides and lunch at a Lapland hut, spas, a water park and a pool with simulated sea waves guarantee a good mood for visitors of all ages.
In summer, life at the resort does not stop, tourists continue to come here to raft and canoe down the rivers, go hiking and horseback riding, learn the basics of mountaineering and rock climbing. At any time of the year, Trysil will provide an excellent active holiday for young people, children, their parents, as well as grandparents!
