Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

The ski school is excellent. All 4 of us were in ski school with different instructors. They were great- very motivational. Also went on a guided snow shoe walk with ski school- recommend.

Beitostolen is fab for both families or skiers of all levels. we went as a family with 2 teenager girls that are very alble skiiers. we did select Beitostolen for the tranquility and also short distance from the apartment to the slopes, (less and 2 min walk) not many people on the slopes so at some times if felt like a private slope which was amazing. nice selection of slopes , and there are plenty to have a go at, and no queues at all, Great that all staff speaks english and are all very helpful. We did stay in gjestegaarden, very high spec apartment compared to apartment that we have previously stayed in when in France skiing.
Skihire also very good, nice quality skiis. Enough local shop for what we needed of grocery etc.
we will be back.

Such a beautiful place to learn to ski. Cold yes, but accommodation is all close to the slope so easy to pop back to warm up and eat lunch. Quiet slopes and great instructors at the Ski school. Big shout out to Per, Hans and Lasso. Elinor the rep super helpful. The fireworks on the slopes on New Years eve were amazing and the spa at the ridder garden with swim in/out and the outdoor hot-tub, Lush!

I have had very limited ski and board experience. I have only skied twice before and this was my second week of boarding, having done neither snow activity for about 4 - 5 years.

For me, the runs were not too long, easy to get to and incredibly wide and empty. The snow was powdery and the slopes well groomed. They were excellent for building confidence.

The views from the top were breath-takingly beautiful and I smiled the whole time. Going in December (leaving on Christmas Eve) there is limited light so short runs and short days.

Initially there was only one chair lift and one drag lift working which increased to two chair lifts mid way through the week.

I hired my board and boots through the ski centre. You do need to pay extra to store them there for your stay once hired.

I booked lessons through the ski school and ended up with shorter one on one lessons with Hans. This was because there were only two of us and we were different levels. This was a such a brilliant solution and I really benefited from the tuition and I was very grateful to the ski school and Hans for accommodating this. I built confidence.

I also did the air-boarding with Tor Havard (who also did our welcome and told us the history which was very interesting, including that Ibsen's Peer Gynt was set in the surrounding mountains) and Lasse. This is effectively going head first down a ski run on a blow up half board. It was great fun, well taught and well supported. Both guides talked us through, demonstrated, encouraged and made it fun.

Further, I did the snow shoe walk with Mathias which was at sunset and then in the dark by head torch round the back of the downhill pistes and even the cross country runs. Again, so worth doing!

I agree that this is not a place for people who want long red and black runs but if you want beautiful runs and confidence building - it is great! The ski schools had 4 years to adult learners, beginners and improvers. There were fewer boarders but still plenty and towards the end of my stay they had built the snow park (not that I dared try it this time round).

I loved my stay here and my boarding experience. The apres ski was quiet but that was fine for me.

Beitostølen is a cross country and family resort. They claim also to be an alpine skiing resort but they are not at all. Lifts closed, lifts breaking down, a general feel of something from 40 years ago. I had two days here, first at Beitostølen..... boring and most lifts closed. Next day at Raudalen their supposed ski centre that provides more challenge. Good runs, but one old poma ( the other lift that appears on some of their lift maps is dead) and a long lift line. Norway has plenty of good alpine resorts. So if you want downhill skiing forget this place and go elsewhere.

I expected way too much from Beitostolen, as a Ski destination.

It is mid- January, there is plenty of snow but only a handful of ski lifts are open. And some of these are the dreaded tug and hold "lollipops".

The skiing is far too limited.

When you consider you are paying the same or more than the better and more developed Alp resorts for a lift-pass, this is very disappointing.

Andorra is fantastic value compared to Norway, and the Andorra ski experience is far superior.

The cost of eating in Beitostolen is a shocker. You are looking at around £40 per head for an evening meal without alcohol. And the food is very ordinary.

I was hoping for a Northern Lights show, but apparently Beitostolen is not quite Northern enough.

All in all, if you are looking for a good ski holiday, Norway has to be dismissed. The alternatives in the Alps and Andorra are far better.

They are building beginner and intermediate bike trails to entice mountain bikers to the resort. The trails will also be a great community amenity.

Can't add much to what others have said. Beitostolen is great for absolute beginners, and was also pretty good for someone (me) coming back to skiing after 12 years and a bit nervous about how it would go.

Empty greens, blues and a couple of short reds. The slopes filled up a bit on the weekend, which added to the atmosphere.

We went in early April and the weather was glorious. Clearly hadn't snowed for a while and it was a bit crispy on the surface but still pretty good conditions. By the end of the week there were a lot of bare or icy patches on the piste edges. There's not much season left.

The kids and nervous adult came on really well and will be enjoying further skiing holidays. Not in Beitostolen, but we're very happy about the time we spent here.

Beautiful Beitostølen - slopes are perfect for children, families and beginners. Ski school is FANTASTIC - friendly and brilliant instructors. Might not suit advanced skiers but perfect for a family ski trip
