And now for something a little different… If you're after a wonderfully traditional ski holiday in an unspoilt and charming Norwegian village, yet with great facilities and accommodation then Voss is just the place for you. Set beside a lake in beautiful fjord country, under two hours from Bergen, Voss offers something for newbies right through to super-skiers and everything in between. With the recent addition of a snow-making system, snow is sure throughout the season and the slopes are not overcrowded.
For beginners, there's a gently rolling plateau to help you gain your snow legs. Intermediates can make the most of plenty of blues and more challenging reds, as well as two terrain parks. There are some thrilling runs for expert skiers but for extra zing, why not hire a guide and go ski-touring or off-piste?
There's cross-country skiing too and the resort caters well for boarders with half-pipe, kickers and boarder cross made just for your entertainment.
The pace is relaxed here, though it livens up at weekends when locals come in from Bergen. There is a whole range of bars, restaurants and nightclubs to suit your preference (and stamina!)
There are also swimming pools, a spa and wellness centre, cinema, bowling alley, ice rinks (indoors and outdoors), tennis, squash, horse riding, sleigh rides, balloon trips and winter walking trails. Oh, and there's ice fishing, night skiing, and a ski jump if you have a bit of Eddie the Eagle in your genes.
If you'd like to venture a bit further afield then a day trip to Bergen is a must, or a ride on the historic Fläm railway which could include a scenic fjord cruise as well.
Everyone loves Voss, especially families, so why not give it a go with GetSkiing?
Gary's Little Gems
"There is an average of 540 cms of snow per year so you can virtually guaranteed snow over a long ski season from early December to late April. This is ideal beginners to early intermediates ski terrain with two good ski and snowboard parks for the more adventurous to try a few jumps and tricks. For the really adventurous, you should hire a guide and do some off-piste ski touring."
