Skiing Norway is a nationwide interest group for cross-country skiing and winter activities in Norway. It was established in 2001 in collaboration with Innovation Norway, Norges Skiforbund (Norwegian skiing association), The Association for the Promotion of Skiing and the Norwegian Trekking Association. Skiing Norway wants to ensure that you have great experiences in the Norwegian nature, both with and without skis! We would like to wish you a hearty welcome to Winter Norway! ACTIVITIES WITHOUT SKIS These days, winter resort businesses can offer much more than just crosscountry skiing. A wonderful trip on a horse and sleigh with bells and torches, or a visit to a lavvo with a Foto: Hindsæter Fjellhotell bonfire, where you will be served a warm drink, will add another dimension to your experience. Most locations offer ski rental and skiing lessons, and will also have slalom slopes/ski tows. Many locations have special activities for children and offer discounts to families. The soft, white snow inspires you to play. From vigorous snowball fights amongst teenagers to more creative forms of expression, such as small children making snowmen, or grown-ups building impressive snow sculptures. Snow also equals speed for many on skis, rump-sleds, toboggans, kick-sleds or sleds. Fun and excitement for people at play, regardless of age. CONTENTMENT AND WELL-BEING After your ski trip, you might like to enjoy a sauna or a swim, relax around an open-hearth fire or even have a dance after dinner. Everywhere, you will experience a distinct and cosy environment where the individual is catered for. Fine cuisine is an important part of a successful holiday and, at our full-service establishments, you will find a sumptuous Norwegian breakfast and excellent food, with many Norwegian specialities. SEASONAL VARIATIONS The snow has a magnetic attraction to us. Real ski enthusiasts hurry to put on their skis as soon as the first snow falls in November, forming a thin, white blanket over the landscape.
3 CROSS COUNTRY SKIING Challenges for all skiers in Norway. Many enthusiasts are not finished with their regular skiing until May. Right through to the middle of summer, quite a few Norwegians will ascend the high mountain glaciers, in order to enjoy warm summer days on white snow, under a blue sky and a blazing sun. Christmas and New Year in the mountains is a very special experience, built around festivals and traditions. Use the daytime to take refreshing skiing trips and in the evening you may enjoy authentic food and savour the wonderful atmosphere. From January until March there is usually plenty of snow and excellent trails. Even though the days are short and temperatures are at their lowest, this is the time for great nature adventures. The snow glistens in the snow-clad trees. Dusk brings with it the mystical, fascinating blue light, which has inspired many artists both past and present. If the night should reveal a star-filled sky, you will often witness the Northern Lights dancing across the heavens. This is the time for those who seek calm, tranquillity and recreation. Easter in Norway is a symbol of sun, snow and joy of life. Many Norwegians want to be on the white, sun-drenched plateaux at this time, to seek out wonderful nature adventures and to enjoy peace and recreation. Much of the day is spent outdoors, on the sun terrace, on the ski trails, or simply playing in the snow.

4 weather & Turski i Norge Page 4 Vandrekatalog Side 4 clothing Foto: Stryn Skisenter/Ski Fjord Norway /Terje Rakke Nordic Life Good planning is the basis for a successful tour. THE NORWEGIAN MOUNTAIN CODE To ensure that your stay in the mountains is as comprehensive and successful as possible, it is important to abide by the 9 mountain codes. 1. Do not set out on any long trips without practicing first. 2. Notify others of your route. 3. Respect the weather and the weather forecasts. 4. Learn from the locals. 5. Be equipped for bad weather and cold, even on short trips. 6. Always take a rucksack and proper mountain gear. 7. Never go alone. 8. Turn back in time. Sensible retreat is no disgrace. 9. Save your energy and dig yourself into the snow, if necessary. SUN IN THE MOUNTAINS Even in overcast weather in the mountains, the sun can be very intense. Cover all exposed areas of skin with sun tan lotion containing the appropriate sun protection factor. In extremely cold temperatures, sun tan lotion should be water-free. If you have any doubts about which sun protection factor you should use, please seek advice from the nearest chemist. HOW TO DRESS IN THE MOUNTAINS You should always dress according to the level of activity you are going to undertake. You should dress in order to maintain body temperature and avoid sweating. Vigorous activity requires less clothing than lighter activity. Take warm and comfortable clothing with you. Generally, clothes are separated into 3 layers: 1) The inner layer should be insulated with woollen undergarments, as well as woollen socks. The inner layer should function as a sweattransporting layer. 2) The middle layer should consist of wool, cotton or fleece clothing. 3) The outer layer should be windproof and/or waterproof with adjustable air vents at the wrists, neck, waist and below the knees. SKI EQUIPMENT There are different types of skis. The most commonly used are crosscountry skis or mountain skis, with or without steel edges. At certain ski rental establishments it is also possible to rent wax-free skis, but these are not so common in Norway. Your choice of skis should be based upon the type of terrain and the type of trip that you are intending to undertake. If you have any doubts, ask for advice from your tour operator or directly from your hotel/holiday accommodation before you travel. If you are planning to take your own ski boots and rent skis, check beforehand that the bindings are compatible. SNS and NNN bindings are most commonly used in Norway. Mountain skis often use Rottefella bindings. If you require tips and advice regarding ski waxing, please visit: You will also be able to rent a pulk sled at most establishments. It is recommended that children under 6 months of age should not be placed in a pulk sled. Nor should the air temperature be below -10 degrees centigrade. If you are intending to take a longer trip over several days, it is important to pack properly. The Norwegian Trekking Association has some useful tips for mountain trips on its website at:
5 XC-skiing & health Skiing in the forests and mountains provide energy. Mentally, it is very refreshing. CROSS-COUNTRY SKIING FOR EVERYONE Cross-country skiing is an activity that is suited to everyone and you will encounter every type of skill level and tempo on the trail. Regardless of whether you are a fast or slow skier, cross-country is all about technique. At first, it may be a little difficult to establish the correct movement and weight distribution that will make the skiing easier. To gain experience and to whet your appetite, it might be smart to practice a little first. EXCELLENT FITNESS TRAINING Skiing is perhaps the best endurance sport to be found. One of the reasons for this is that skiing usually takes place out in nature, far removed from road traffic and built-up areas. This offers the opportunity for variety and adventure. Cross-country skiing is a gentle activity that does not put as much strain on the legs as jogging. Cross-country skiing affects the back, arms and legs and involves all the major muscle groups. In other words, you are improving your physical conditioning, endurance strength, balance, weight distribution and technique. Neither are there any particular requirements regarding how you are built. Whether you are tall, short, lightweight or a little heavier, you can enjoy crosscountry skiing. Weight training for the arms, upper body and legs, as well as roller skiing, can help to improve your skiing proficiency. WEIGHT DISTRIBUTION FOR OPTI- MUM GLIDE Rather than shifting their weight from side to side and sliding slightly forward for each step that they take, it is usual for novices to ski with their weight evenly distributed on both skis for the whole time. To achieve optimum weight distribution, you should be able to flex your ankles and bend your knees slightly, while at the same time attempting to carry the weight of your body forward in order to kick back. Then you will achieve a greater sliding movement, which is part of the fun of skiing. At first, it can be difficult to find your balance and your ski sticks can be more of a hindrance than a help. Practice a little by taking some trips without ski sticks. Then you will be forced to kick back correctly in order to move forward. TOTAL RELAXATION OF THE MIND Once you have found your rhythm, you will begin to think about other things and time will fly past. Before you know it, you will have travelled a good distance, will be well and truly out of breath and will have rosy cheeks. You will also be in a great mood, having navigated yourself through snow-clad spruce trees and around other skiers actively using the nature. A relaxed cross-country skiing trip, or a shorter trip at a greater pace, offer great variety to an exercise programme. Skiing is so natural and so pleasurable that, once you have started, you never think of it as exercise. It is also very motivating to do something different during the winter to keep yourself in shape. It is easy to imagine that a ski trip will take ages but you can, in fact, achieve great exercise benefits by taking shorter trips from half an hour to one hour s duration, at a slightly greater pace. Skiing trips through forests and mountains will give you energy. You will be extremely refreshed, mentally. A skiing trip is medicine for the heart. And for weight loss, it is time well spent.

HALLINGDAL TRAIL SOUTH 144 KM There is a continuous trail from Ustaoset over Geilo to Sangefjell and Veståsen to Myking. Most of the route follows prepared trails andpasses over Dyna, which lies at the border between Ål and Nes. From Dyna it runs to Myking and continues towards Synstevann (crosses the road to Tunhovd). If you would prefer a shorter stage between Myking and Haglebu, you can take a detour to the E.K.T. Langedrag Nature Park. Here you may stay overnight during weekends/easter and on individual weekdays when there is no school camp. The trail continues further towards Hallingnatten. From Hallingnatten it runs along Lake Reinsjøen and down to Flatvollen. The descent to Flatvollen is steep and difficult and represents a challenge as the slope is not easy to prepare. The trail then continues towards Haglebu, Tempelseter and finishes at Norefjell. As an alternative, you can also take the trail over Høgevarde on the section between Haglebu and Norefjell. THE TROLL TRAIL 170 KM A wonderful skiing trip from the striking high mountain terrain in the Rondane National Park in the north, via a more gentle mountain terrain, to the Winter Olympics town of Lillehammer in the south. The trip starts at Høvringen and, with the Rondane Massif in the background, runs via Kvamsfjellet to Venabygdsfjellet, further to Øksendalen, and continues past mountain farms at Øyerfjellet to Nordseter. From here, you can choose to take a longer loop around Lake Sjusjøen or descend to Lillehammer. The skiing trip also offers transportation of luggage and there are different departures for trips with and without a tour guide. The trail passes through varied terrain and is marked from 1st February until the end of Easter. The day stages are of km duration. The trip is best suited to competent, well trained skiers. Mountain skis (skis with steel edges) are recommended as the trail is only partly prepared. The trip can also be taken from Lillehammer and northwards to Høvringen. www. norske-bygdeopplevelser.no THE PEER GYNT TRAIL KM The Peer Gynt trail offers you a varied skiing experience in authentic surroundings, from Espedalen via Fefor, Gålå and Kvitfjell to Skeikampen. The trip will include views of the Jotunheimen, Rondane and Dovrefjell national parks. This will give you stunning and dramatic impressions of the otherwise friendly mountain areas that the trail passes through. You will be skiing at 700-1,500 metres above sea level! The daily stages are relatively short and there are many interesting diversions enroute. The whole Peer Gynt trail is frequently maintained and ordinary cross-country skis may be used. There are various places to stay overnight along the trail and also a wide range of activities. The Peer Gynt trail is easy and is therefore suitable for all. no Foto: Terje Rakke/Nordic Life/Innovation Norway Foto: Terje Rakke/Nordic Life/Innovation Norway Foto: Terje Rakke/Nordic Life/Innovation Norway
