Located in Voss, in the fjord region, Myrkdalen is the largest ski resort in Western Norway. Whilst not large by Alps standards, it is perfect for beginners with a specialist nursery area separated from the main ski slopes and wide open pistes. It also offers varied terrain for intermediates.
The resort is compact so amenities and slopes are easily accessible. The pistes are rarely crowded, except on weekends, so a Sunday to Friday stay is perfect for groups to take advantage of the quiet wide runs. The ski school have a fantastic reputation and all instructors are passionate snow lovers, so expect swift progress.
Myrkdalen is only 2 hours transfer from Bergen and the locals speak excellent English. Norwegians tend to take their children skiing from an early age, so the resorts caters well for younger skiers and is super friendly. Myrkdalen is one of the most snow sure resorts with more snowfall than almost anywhere else in Europe. It is therefore an excellent choice for early or late season. The UNESCO listed Nærøyfjord is only 45 minutes from Myrkdalen, so groups can extend their stay to experience this stunning fjord landscape, with the potential to include the world famous Flåm railway.

The Myrkdalen Hotel is literally at the base of the ski slopes, so access to the nursery area and lift system couldn’t be easier. It is a fantastic choice for beginners with wide open runs and as the locals only tend to ski at weekends, slopes are usually quiet Monday to Friday. Whilst the area for advanced skiers is not vast, there are a few challenging runs, plus terrain parks and accompanied off-piste options.
