Kvitfjell Resort, Norway

From series “Top 13 Furious Ski Resorts and Pistes”
Year: 1994.

Norway is mainly known for the quiet family resorts, most of which do not even have the 'red' ski slopes. The exception is the spa town of Kvitfjell, on whose territory the most difficult 'black' course of Norway is situated. The main difficulty for the athletes is the great inclination. On some routes, the slope is almost vertical. Every year a stage of the downhill world cup takes place on the most difficult track in Norway. And if there are no competitions in Kvitfjell, the slopes are also accessible to amateur athletes. However, it is not recommended to ski on this slope without long preparation.

The health resort Kvitfjell is a real sporting attraction in Norway. He was founded in 1994 at the Olympics in Lillehammer. Just a few years later its infrastructure became perfect. Today, more than 20 slopes, including three 'black' are available to spa guests. Kvitfjell has an excellent hotel infrastructure as well as the first class ski school and is therefore not only recommended for the professionals but also for beginners. A few years ago, the sports infrastructure of the health resort was supplemented by the new skicross slope, whose extension is 650 meters. This difficult descent with sharp curves and ski jumping hills is used by the Norwegian downhill course as a training place. Next - Eiger Run Ski Slope

Top destination around Kvitfjell Resort - Lillehammer

One of the most unusual cultural centers in Lillehammer is the Norsk Kjoretoyhistorisk Museum. It houses a unique collection of old cars, among which there are 19th-century vehicles. The most valuable exhibits are a steam car released in 1901 and one of the first electric cars in the world assembled back in 1917. Visitors are allowed to get behind the wheel of some vintage cars, as well as try out some vehicles in action. Many tourists visit the museum not only to admire its antique cars but also to make spectacular memorable pictures.
The city has preserved many old religious buildings, and the oldest one is the Lillehammer Church. Built in the 13th century, this stave church is one of the few buildings of this kind in the world, which has somehow managed to remain perfectly preserved after hundreds of years. The wonderful church is still active and striking with its impressive scale. A historic cemetery near the church is now of great cultural value for the city.

Lillehammer has also preserved several picturesque old streets ideal for walking and admiring the old architecture. One of the most beautiful is Storgata Street demonstrating unique 18th-century buildings. Here you can also see beautiful wooden houses that haven't been changed at all over the past 200 years. Today, many historic houses are occupied by popular museums, restaurants, and craft shops, and on Storgata Street, you will see a number of symbolic monuments.
