Who would have thought that after a day wandering around the amazingly picturesque city of Oslo, which I think is strikingly similar to both Victoria and Vancouver in Canada, you can jump on a train, take a 30 minute trip and be on an outdoor ski slope with a great view over the city. You can also rent all the necessary gear at the Oslo Winter Park ski rental shop and take a lesson if you have no idea what to do with the plank or planks that are now attached to your feet.

For most of the season, which runs from December to April, you can snowboard or ski from 10am until 10pm on the fully lit slopes.

Snowboarding & Skiing in Oslo Norway

While it is not the worlds biggest resort by any means, they certainly have enough to keep you well entertained for at least 2 or 3 days of solid downhill. I know I thoroughly enjoyed the stupidly high speeds I managed to reach on my snowboard on the immaculately groomed pistes. I love gravity, and riding sideways. 

Their longest run is about 1.5km, depending on how much of the more than wide enough slopes you use. After each run you have a choice of either a 4 or 6 seater high speed detachable, a 4 seater non-detachable, and a few drag lifts on the bunny slopes.

There are a few snack bars dotted around as well as 2 eateries; one in the middle somewhere, and one at the bottom of the black slope. Along with the rental services, you also have a small ski shop at the main lodge where you can buy extra gear, such as gloves and goggles.

If you’re looking for rails, kickers and a half pipe, they have those too.

Ticket Prices at Oslo Winterpark

As far as pricing goes, I think their lifts tickets are very reasonable. At the time of writing this during the 2018/19 season, a single day pass was about €40, or exactly 440 Norwegian Krone. You will also have to buy a chip card for Nk50, which is not refundable. Apparently these cards can be used at any other resort that uses a chip card system. I’m guessing they all use the same technology, just with each resort printing its own logo on the cards. Or leave it with a local friend, or keep it as a souvenir.

Tips for snowboarding and skiing at Oslo Winter Park:

  • If you parked your car by the Tryvann tower at the top, be sure you don’t find yourself at the bottom of the Wyller black slope on the other side of the mountain after the lifts have closed.
  • Try not to go on weekends or pubic holiday as roughly half of Oslo will also be there. While they have modern fast lifts, you may find yourself waiting in line for up to half an hour for a 10 minute trip up and back down.
  • Weekdays are probably the best times to go. As mentioned earlier, all the slopes are fully lit until closing time at 10pm during the week. Lifts close at 5pm on weekends and public holidays as well as the whole week between Christmas and new year.
