The Ski Resort

Only one hour from Bergen, winter sports enthusiasts can explore an area with 40 kilometers of slopes at Voss Resort. With 21 slopes, the Voss area is the largest in western Norway.

Voss, a town with a population of almost 14,000, gives its name to the ski resort, which is the highlight of the Norwegian fjord landscape for winter sports enthusiasts. It is idyllically situated between the Hardanger and Sognefjord and offers a varied landscape with mountains, wooded valleys, rivers and waterfalls. When visibility is good, winter sports enthusiasts can enjoy the view over the Norwegian coast from the ski slopes.

Just a few meters from the city center, the Hangursbanen gondola lift starts, taking skiers to Hanguren. From there a drag lift leads to the slopes of the area. The second starting point is Bavallen, which is only a few kilometers from the city center. Thanks to 700 free parking spaces, a comfortable start to the skiing day is guaranteed.

In 1947, one of the first ski lifts in Norway was opened in Bavallen. Today, two chair lifts take skiers to the area in just five minutes. For beginners it is advisable to stay in the valley for the time being, as the Grebbesbakken area is located next to the valley station of the chair lifts. Thanks to a 50-meter-long magic carpet, skiing is easy to learn there. The lift can also be used free of charge. A little further away, the Vetlebakken slope also offers a suitable practice slope. If you are still a little insecure on your skis, you can also contact the local ski school. The courses are not only offered in the local language, but also in English and German.

Once the first turns are done, it is worthwhile to ski down from Hanguren via the green marked (= very easy) family slope (No. 8). It takes the little skiers to Badnakrokjen, a special children's slope. There are play facilities such as sledges for the little ones and benches and blankets for relaxation. Regular ski races are also held here.

Experienced sportsmen find red marked slopes all over the area. Professionals can also enjoy the FIS slalom slope (No. 6) and the black marked downhill run (No. 19), which starts in Horgaletten at 964 meters and leads back to Bavallen. Below the Tråstølen lift, there is also a mogul slope waiting for you: Voss has already been the venue of the mogul slope World Cup.

Two snowparks are available for freestylers: a main park at Slettafjellet with medium-difficult obstacles and a big air bag, where the jumps with soft landings can be practiced, and a park with easier obstacles at Tråstølen lift.

Every Wednesday and Friday night skiing is also offered at Voss Resort on the slalom course (no. 6) and Alphaløypa run (no. 7) until 9 pm.
