Hemsedal alpine skiing

Hemsedal is definitely one of the best ski resorts in Scandinavia, with great runs and lifts that are getting better every year, and unrivalled facilities for children.
A long ski season and almost guaranteed good conditions plus a vertical drop of over 800 metres and the longest run at about 6 km long make this special.

top of the mountain - Totten There are 19 lifts, including 4 express chair lifts, and 42 km of runs of varying standard. The nursery slopes are separate from the main runs, with 4 button lifts and a conveyer belt lift for really small beginners.
There is a good snow park and fairly good off-piste options - but not if there has not been enough snowfall.
Intermediate skiers can certainly keep themselves busy for a week getting to know the runs and stretching themselves.
At the bottom is a good apres-ski scene.
