41 Oslo Winter Park is located just above the city's landmark ski jumping hill, Holmenkollbakken. A surprise to many travellers, the Norwegian capital is, indeed, a high-fl ying skiing destination. You can stay at a downtown hotel, enjoying the city's urban buzz, restaurants and galleries, and still be only 30 minutes by tram from the ski lifts of the Oslo Winter Park. The resort features 18 ski slopes, including dedicated slopes for children and beginners as well as expert slopes. The area totals 19 kilometres of ski slopes, the longest of which is two kilometres. All the pistes are lit for night-time skiing. Bringing skiers to their starting points are 11 ski lifts, two of which are fourseater chairlifts. Naturally, the resort also has a ski school and ski rental and there are halfpipes, rails and jumps. If cross-country skiing is your thing, there are trails taking you into the woods in all directions from the slopes and the ski lifts. Oslo Winter Park is the fourth-busiest ski resort in Norway with approximately 300,000 annual visitors. The park is located in Tryvann and the two main entrances are by Tryvann Tower and Wyller in Sørkedalen. You can buy your ski pass directly online before arrival or in vending machines and at manned ticket counters by the two main entrances. Oslo Winter Park is usually open from November/ December to April, depending on the snow condi- tions. Regular opening hours: Monday – Friday: 10:00 – 22:00. Saturday – Sunday: 10:00 – 17:00 Capital & Ski Destination Above Oslo's iconic ski jump, Holmenkollbakken, you fi nd a unique skiing resort – right in the heart of the Norwegian capital PHOTO: KYLE MEYR
