Blues and greens are in abundance here and it is a fantastic place to learn how to ski. The numerous ski instructors all speak excellent English and queues are only conspicuous by their complete absence.

Intermediates will find many a challenge, un-crowded pistes and cruising reds are the norm here. There isnâ€™t much for experts on ski holidays in Geilo, but this is the training ground for the successful Norwegian alpine ski team, so there are a few challenges to be found.
The town of Geilo itself is divided into three parts with a frequent shuttle bus ferrying people around.
