Norwegians are incredible hosts, but the ski area needs major improvement. Not a single bubble lift and a huge gap in the difficulty spectrum from learning to greens. Not a good place to learn to ski unless you’re really confident. The access green runs contain very steep sections making them blues and even reds in any French resort. It seems like they’ve chose the cheapest option instead of modifying the landscape so that beginners can actually explore the mountain.

Hemsedal used to be the best destination in Norway for downhill skiing. Not any more.
Up to winter 2023/24 it could be full, but not to that extent. The owners are obviously Swedish and therefore only interested in maximum profit by neglecting maintenance and - worst of all - filling everything up with tourists mostly from Denmark. All the time. Even on Sunday afternoons when it used to be more calm. It has become overcrowded, there are busloads of school classes they’re driving up there and the majority are beginners. Unpredictable skiers and way too many of them, I consider it rather dangerous on the slopes now.
Concerning neglect you can see it at the toilets which have become a filthy mess and frequent stops of the lifts.

Excellent spot for skiers! To beginners so as to experienced.
One big store with skis equipment with very helpful and qualified staff. There is also lounge for skiers with small kitchen and toilets available for everyone. Very clean as well.

First time skiing in Norway and loved it. Hemsedal is an excellent intermediate resort but also perfect for beginners and advanced skiers will fine more challenging runs on and off piste. Harder runs are limited but check out the map. It’s cold, but we knew that and took appropriate clothing and hand warmers although there were lots at the ski centre. The low temperature kept the slush away at the end of the day. We loved the ski to Hemsedal - a bit of shopping and a coffee and back on the free bus. Restaurants were all good and offered different fare - we checked them all out. A highlight was the different opening times of the lifts with three late night floodlit skiing and the 7:30 am enabling you to ski through the dawn- stunning. Transfers were good and would certainly recommend Ski Safari as a company to book through. Would definitely return

It’s extremely expensive here for the low quality. The parking outside Costa 25 eur for 1 minute. And the invoice comes 1 month after and is complicated to pay. The lift card activates automatically the day you arrive even though you haven’t skied. Shame on this money making business!

Let us quickly conclude that one of Norway's largest alpine ski resorts is also one of the best in the country. Then you can have comments that Skistar as owner folds like a blanket over the incredible commercialization of the ski resort.The days we went, in all weather and storms, we note that the resort is very exposed to the wind, as to and from the lifts shut down, and then the area becomes very limited.Effective new lifts and older people with poor performance struggle when the crowd pressure is high during high season.But definitely an area that works well for a couple of days of skiing, both for novice and expert. Missing some small eateries on the mountain, now it is large canteens that are difficult to impress us.

Hemsedal is worth visiting - both during winter and summer. The ski center is big enough to keep you busy for a little week, and the restaurants near the slopes are of good quality. Also, there are huts, where you can make a fire or barbecue, and places where you can eat your packed lunch and get warm. The town of Hemsedal is also worth visiting with several nice cafes and shops.
