Alpine skiing and snowboarding
In Hemsedal you will find two ski centres; Hemsedal Skisenter and Solheisen Skisenter.
Hemsedal Skisenter offers skiing at all levels, from first-time skiers to advanced skiing. Here you can enjoy variable skiing – the ski centre offers 24 lifts and 52 slopes with different levels of difficulty, from very easy green slopes, to difficult black ones.
There are several terrain parks, suitable for different levels of skiing and snowboarding. The parks in Hemsedal are well-known among snowboarders and ski enthusiasts all over the world.
Be the first to ski in nicely groomed slopes or in powder snow – go early morning skiing in Hemsedal down three different slopes every Saturday from the beginning of February to the end of March.
You can also enjoy night skiing down nine floodlit slopes from the beginning of December to the beginning of April.
Not far from Hemsedal Skisenter (approximately 10 kilometres), in the Grøndalen Valley, you will find the smaller ski centre of Solheisen Skisenter. Solheisen has three lifts and six slopes, and is a perfect place for those who want to ski somewhere quieter.
For the children
The children’s area at Hemsedal Skisenter is the largest in Norway. This is the perfect place for the little ones to take their first turns or for beginners who want an easy start. Situated in the children’s area, you can also find theactivity park Gaupeland where children can play in the snow, go tobogganing and try the carousel.
In addition to this, there is the Foxnest indoor day care (babysits children from six months of age). This offer is a perfect opportunity for parents who want to enjoy a couple of hours alone on the slopes.
