The snow lingers in central Norway until at least mid-April, so conditions throughout March are very reliable. Sjusjøen
are both paradises for cross-country skiers, with literally hundreds of kilometres of trails for all levels, including beginners. On paper, Spidsbergseter
– a superb choice for first-timers and improvers – has a smaller network, but because of its layout, with criss-crossing trails, you can make up many different routes. Geilo
, too, boasts an excellent cross-country domain, though it is also a good choice for downhill skiing if that is your passion.
