The amazing area Fjords of Norway has allot of charming small ski resorts. This is our favorite place for resort hoping. We ride pow in 4-5 resorts in the same week. The resorts has also some different opening hours so you can hit multiple resorts fresh on the same snowfall. Some are open during day time others during night time. Here you can ride straight into the pow lines from the lifts on a fresh day. If you put in a traverse or do a few meters of hiking out from the lifts you can almost everyday find some untouched snow. This area is also known for it´s many good night riding pow sessions and on some clear winter nights the Aurora Borealis dances on the sky when out riding. The area has allot of beautiful nature with the Fjords and 100`s of mountains around, it´s a great experience during winter time. The resorts got terrain to ride for everyone. Here you can ride mellow open fields, windlips, tre lines and a bit steeper areas with fun terrain features. This area got definitely Norway´s best lift access freeriding.
We can guarantee great nature, fun riding and you get to stay the whole week in the beautiful norwegian mountains.
