North of Oslo and east of Lillehammer, the Trysil Ski Resort has 71km of pistes served by 30 lifts with a maximum vertical descent of 685m. The pistes encircle this conical mountain with the upper third above the treeline and the lower two-thirds through the forests. Trysil is the largest ski resort in Norway, and has four base areas including Skihytta, Hogegga, Hoyfjellssenter and Turistsenter (the best of the bunch).
While not really a freeriding hot spot, there are some open freeride zones around the top section of Trysilfjellet. Otherwise, you’ll want to head to the black pistes above Hogegga, which have good steeps and some sidecountry lines.
Freestylers will find one of the best terrain parks in Norway. While this status is debated by Hemsedal ski area, you’ll find lengthy, piste-long parks with plenty of big hits. If you have been here before, sadly the halfpipe is no longer maintained.
After a long day of snowboarding at Trysil ski area, you’ll want to start your apres ski up on the mountain at Knettsetra near the mid-station above the Hogegga base. Then try checking out the apres ski at Sindrestua, which is located next to the Fjellekspressen lift, and also at crowded and wild Laaven. For some nightlife, head over to the T2 Nightclub in the Turistsenter base area.
Trysil Ski Resort is located about 2.5 hours to the north of the Oslo airport.
Overall, Trysil Ski Resort is the 6th most popular snowboard & freeride destination of all 6 snowboarding resorts in Norway.
