"Varingskollen" Oslo Sports & Outdoors Tip by PookieRabbit

Oslo Sports & Outdoors: 48 reviews and 46 photos

I am going to try and include a few more snowboarding places that have been mentioned to me. I didn’t get to these places but hopefully these will be useful to other people and maybe I will get there if I (hopefully) manage another weekend in Oslo sometime.

One of these is Varingskollen. This resort is owned by the same people as Tryvann. Apparently Varingskollen is located in Hakadal, only 30 minutes from Oslo. To get there by train it suggests Skøyen – Oslo S/Hakadal – Jaren – Gjøvik. Get off at Varingskollen train station. The independent Norway Ski Info web site gives this resort the following scores -

For beginners 4.2/6
For advanced 4.4/6
For snowboarders 4.4/6

For more information the web site has plenty of information in English

As with the other resorts mentioned I can highly recommend the Ski Info Norway web site - which is also in English.
