For your safety

Information regarding season opening in Kvitfjell.

There is little snow outside of the slopes that are open. Skiing outside of marked and groomed slopes entails great risk. We therefore ask you to respect signage and side markings so that you have a safe skiing experience. It is not permitted to stay on slopes that have not been opened. Snow production and work with mechanical equipment takes place here, also during the day.

We want the ground crews in the facilities to be able to work undisturbed in these areas, without the risk of guests coming in and exposing both themselves and our employees to risk. We also remind you that traffic in the facility outside opening hours is prohibited!

We wish all our guests a safe and good ski season!
