Fonna Glacier Ski Resort is a summer only ski resort set in a stunning location. It looks great for professional and experienced skiers, with several red and blue slopes, however beginners should stay away.

Before heading out to Norway, we decided we wanted to try out skiing. We chose Fonna over Stryn for both its reviews and location.

Unfortunately, contrary to Fonna's website, this ski resort is simply not appropriate for beginners.

At the bottom of the glacier, there is no discovery space for getting to grips with a new pair of skis and trying out the basics. There's some space towards the top, but getting there is quite daunting if you've just strapped on a pair of skis for the first time.

Fonna has two ski slopes, neither of which are appropriate for beginners. There were clearly a large number of professional skiers using the resort, and I have no doubt this a great resort for advanced levels.

I would recommended beginners to stay away and start out somewhere more gentle. Perhaps Fonna should rethink their website which says it's a resort for 'all levels'.

We cancelled the second day of our 2-day trip.

I have been there several times over the years. The drive up/down is spectacular with lots of viewpoints over Hardangerfjorden and the road itself is penetrating the mountain and in some places a nicd challenging drive. Nice pace to ski with many opportunities. Visit while there is still a glacier to enjoy!

At Fonna you get a totally different experience with the fun of skiing in summer temperatures that you get in Norway mixed with snow from the winter. the downside was that because it is a summer skiing resort, you do not get that many options when you ride down. But on the plus side it has got an amazing park with a variety of rails and jumps that gives you enough to ride for the whole day.
