Norway launches first 365 day ski lift pass
24 October 2009
Four ski resorts in Norway have launched the first 365 day lift pass to enable skiers to enjoy the snow all year around. The resorts – Voss, Myrkdalen, Røldal and Folgefonn, are based on the west coast of Norway and are in near proximity. Season pass holders can now use all four resorts on one lift pass.
This unique card offers the possibility of skiing 12 months a year as Folgefonn resort is positioned on a glacier and opens for summer skiing when the other locations close in May.
From November to May, the resorts offer guaranteed snow with the unique backdrop of magnificent fjords and mountains, and is perfect for off-piste skiing as well as family friendly slopes.
Many British skiers are surprised at how easy Norway’s family-friendly ski resorts are to reach – it’s just a two-hour flight away and offers good quality and quantity of snow, even at low altitudes. Norway has uncrowded slopes, efficient lift systems and queues, and modern ski equipment.
