The chairlift to the summit Nos has been in operation since 1968. Today, the Hovden Ski Centre is a modern and well adapted facility for the whole family. The children's area "Tusseland" has become an eldorado for our youngest guests; and the terrain park "Bukkerittet" is more spectacular than ever!

The Hovden Ski Centre has slopes for every skill level, and some of them are floodlit during evening skiing. Our service building has ski rental facilities and a ski repair shop, cafe, cafeteria, after-ski and bistro.

Hovden offers a total of 34,2 kilometres of groomed descent, a vertical drop of 420 metres, two 4-seat express lifts, five ski tows and one 2-seat lift. The capacity is 9000 persons per hour.

Great skiing and good facilities

Great skiing and good facilities, very kids friendly. Big area for kids to play in the snow, and also play area inside with babysitters if parents want to go slalom.

Queued for a while to get our passes for the week. Drove back to our hotel. Then had to drive back to the centre as they had got all our passes wrong. Not a good first impression...

learnt to ski at this resort a few years ago. The accommodation (mini apartment) was awesome with fantastic views of the slopes (fab of a night time). there is a free shuttle bus from the resort to the slopes which was regular, the spa within the resort is also well worth a visit after a day on the slopes.

Free parking just next to the alpine hill, ski/snowboard hire on premises, café at the bottom of the hill, kids have their own hill, cross country skiing tracks as well. Good times.

I was here with my family on holiday. The snow was perfect and wetter fine. Sadly was the wind sometimes too much that they had to close some of the ramps. But a very friendly family place.

We came here for the first time last week. We skied here for 5 days in a row. Wow. What a place! Very affordable for such a beautiful ski experience! I was a first time skier, as were my children, so we stayed on the first 2 green slopes. They were perfect for us. My husband hasn't skied in 20... More

We went in summer, not winter, but who cares, it is a fantastic area to be in at any time of the year. We did several relatively easy walks. Everywhere we went the scenery was fabulous! The hotels, self-catering, shops, restaurants are excellent.

I was in Hovden with the family including two small kids for a week. The skicenter was OK for beginners, lighter experienced and children ... but if you are looking for more action on a pair of skies, then Hovden is too small. They had however a Snowboard park, that looked pretty cool. We stayed in a traditional wooden house,... More

Visited Hovden and its Ski Centre for a week in Feb '11 and would definitely recommend it to averyone. I have never ski or snowboard before, but with help within 3 days I've managed to gain basic skills on the kids slope and went all the longest green slope from the top of the mountain. Rest of our group took... More
