Ski resorts in Norway
Basically the entire lift system in Røldal is located above the tree line. That’s why it is critical to check snow, wind and weather conditions, including forecasts, before heading there. In the right conditions, Røldal has phenomenal off-piste skiing with steep runs, but is still readily accessible. The resort is situated almost in the middle of south Norway, at the south eastern part of Hardangervidda High Mountain Plateau. It’s not an exaggeration to say the resort is very moderate while the snow is amazing. Røldal is renowned to almost always have awesome snow conditions, but there is not much to do at the resort itself.

Are you looking for a place with remarkable powder snow? Then this Norwegian resort is ideal for you. Are you really just after great skiing and couldn’t care less about the amenities? Perfect. You’re welcome to the freezing cold but yet beautiful village of Røldal. If you would rather mix up your skiing with wild after ski parties, dining experiences at various restaurants and other activities, then you’re better off looking elsewhere. Having said this, Røldal does turn into a real party town once a year, namely during the Norwegian RFC ski competition (Røldal Freeride Challenge), which is organized here each year at the end of April.
