Hemsedal, Norway

With some of the best snowfall and even better apr├Ęs ski, the resort of Hemsedal in Norway is definitely giving alpine resorts a run for their money. The area is a charming idyll, located in the Hallingdal Valley between Bergen and Oslo. The whole resort has grown massively in popularity thanks to the good snow and wide range of activities. The town itself is burrowed between the massive, rugged peaks of the surrounding mountains and is characterised by the log buildings, jovial atmosphere, historical interest, and the clear Norwegian feel. The 34 pistes themselves are very well maintained and they cover around 35kms with a wide range of levels. There are opportunities to try challenging off-piste runs and over 130kms of cross-country skiing. Additionally, the resort itself offers other activities to keep everyone amused from dog-sledding to kite-skiing.
