We enjoyed skiing here. V much for intermediate at best, but lovely, well pisted slopes. We arrived at the ski centre and our skis were there. We wanted more than basic skis, so we managed to exchange for better ones, but this wasn't guaranteed; there had clearly been a miscommunication in the booking. Thankfully, they had some premium ones to... More

Unbelievably helpful to a skiing halfwit. Boots were super comfy. All issues dealt with in a friendly fuss free way. Thank you

This is a great attraction, specially with child! As all thinks in Norway, it's expensive for foreigners! But it's a good mountains to ski beginners and snowboarders!

It is important to never ever compare the Alpine resorts to the Norwegian resorts. Geilo Skiheiser is distinctively different and has it's own charm. It's a great place for beginners to intermediate riders / skiers, with a modest selection of wide runs that is not overly crowded, making it a great place to learn. The staff are awesome, friendly and... More

Great place. My son loved the snow parks with the variety of different ramps, boxes etc. Good variety of runs in both sides of the mountain although the Geilo side would benefit from new chair access as only the Central area has one. That said lovely slopes, quiet so new queues. Highly recommended.

In January, despite the locals saying that there wasn't much snow, I could ski on lovely prepared pistes all day. The skiing is a bit limited in area and scope, so if you are a good intermediate, you will become bored after about a day. However, next time I will probably do some xc skiing or some boarding.

Geilo Skiing: for first time skiers and intermediate skiers/boarders this place was great. We stayed at Gelolia Hyttenun with a group of 8 (4 adults, 4 kids). The Ski shop was relatively efficient and we were all decked out by mid Monday morning. Pre book your equipment - we did this direct with the ski centre and they were very... More

Ski trip to Geilo, Jan 2016 A small ski area (actually two areas on opposite sides of the valley, linked by ski bus service). 20 lifts, most of them drag lifts including a Tbar, 5 of them chairlifts. The runs on the smaller Geilolia side are generally longer and gentler and on the other Slaata skisenter/Geilohiesen side shorter but steeper.... More

This area had good slopes for all levels ranging from green slopes for beginners to black mogul slopes for the more advanced. There are even jumps and rails. the slopes are groomed overnight so they are particularly pleasant to ski on in the mornings. One thing I would say is that the area is not very big so once you...
