Hafjell enjoys early and continued snowfalls throughout the winter months, something that attract enthusiastic skiers and snowboarders alike. In addition to the stabile winter climate, there are 200 snow cannons wich produce a staggering six truck-loads of snow every minute! This ensures that 90% of the whole resort is covered with the snow cannons. This combination of fresh and manmade snow creates a solid base of snow, which in turn leads to pristine slopes every day.
Terrain Parks for Everyone
With a combination of fantastic skiing for both experts and beginners alike, varied terrain, top class amenities, location, accessibility and unbeatable views, there is no wonder Hafjell has become one of Scandinavia's top ski destinations. In spite of its popularity, you will rarely find yourself sharing the slopes with hundreds of other skiers.
