Skiing in Voss
The alpine slopes at Voss on Mount Hangur are easily accessible with a cable car running from Voss centre or by driving to the car park in Bavallen and taking a lift there. The resort offers excellent nursery slopes as well as demanding terrain for the most experienced.
The skiing school is situated at the top station of Hangursbanen and offers instruction in alpine, telemark and snowboarding disciplines. It has a reputation for its high quality, friendly service. There is a sunny plateau here that's ideal for beginners, and the fact that it is reached quickly from the town centre without having to put your skis on makes it a wonderful place to learn. Rentals are also on site and there are great views to enjoy when not concentrating on those first turns.
Intermediates have the best selection of skiing at Voss with most of the terrain open to them, and some manageable powder slopes to learn the basics of off piste skiing on.
Voss has hosted many FIS World Cup races and believes it has fostered more Winter Olympic participants than any other place in the world. There are several trails for advanced skiers, although the options are limited compared to bigger ski areas. Descents from the Floytesteinen and Stettafjell are amongst the more challenging. The resort also has a reputation for off-piste powder when conditions are good.
Every Wednesday and Friday there is floodlight skiing in Bavallen up to 9pm.
Snowboarding in Voss
For boarders there's a big jump, half pipe and boardercross in the park and the powder fields are excellent for free riding when the snow is fresh.
Voss is a great place to get on a board for the first time as the cable car straight from the town to the nursery area at the top of the mountain means there's no need to master a drag lift too early on in your riding career..
