Uncrowded slopes, perfect for families and a host of other winter activities
Trysil, Norway’s largest alpine resort with four varied ski areas linked seamlessly by 71km of beautifully groomed pistes, is new to Crystal Ski Holidays for winter 2016/17. Norway is known for its uncrowded runs and Trysil is no exception – you may even find yourself on a slope all to yourself.
Trysil comprises of four interconnected ski areas, all with their own unique characteristics. From the seven steep black slopes in Høgegga and a new high-speed chairlift to the red, blue and green slopes at Skihytta, Turistsenter with excellent nursery slopes and Høyfjellssenter, which is perfect for beginners. For tricksters and boarders, the Parken Trysil snow park is the place to play – it’s got different areas for different abilities, right up to the resort’s largest jump, Night’n.
Trysil was voted “Norway’s Best Alpine Resort for Families” and offers large children’s areas on both sides of the mountain – where snowman Valle is the children’s best friend – ensuring a good skiing experience for the whole family.
And if you are a cross-country skier, you can keep an eye on when the trails were last groomed thanks to a GPS transmitter mounted on the grooming machine.
There’s guaranteed snow and it’s a long season too: Trysil usually opens in November and stays open right through to the end of April.
Direct flights from London Heathrow, Gatwick, Manchester and Edinburgh to Oslo take two hours and transfer time is just over two hours and 30 minutes, making Trysil easy to access for families, couples or singles looking to ski Norway.
“I am delighted that Crystal Ski has seen growth potential in Norway over and above their already very establish and exclusive charter operation to Fagernes Airport for Geilo, Hemsedal and Beitostolen. By offering Trysil from Winter 2016, Crystal Ski Holidays will most certainly help with the awareness of this great product and bring many more British tourist to the Norwegian Mountains “ – Trevor De Villiers, Sales & Marketing Director for Norway – Home of Skiing.
Michael Brabin, Crystal’s purchasing manager – “Trysil is Norway’s largest ski resort with reliable snow and a good mix of ski runs – so it’s a great addition to our programme. I’m thrilled that we are able to offer direct flights not just from Heathrow and Gatwick, but also from Manchester and Edinburgh. I’m sure easier access will encourage more skiers and snowboarders to check-out for themselves how good the skiing is in Norway, and also enjoy other winter activities like dog sledding, night skiing, horse sleigh riding, tobogganing and star gazing.”
There are two main resort accommodations: the Park Inn in Høyfjellsenter and the Radisson Blu in Turistsenter, which are both high quality and have excellent facilities. Even better, nearly all the accommodation throughout Trysil is ski-in, ski-out.

A week’s stay at the Park Inn Apartments costs from £350 per person (four sharing). Prices are based on 8 January 2017 departure flying from Heathrow to Oslo.
