It is the most relaxed, friendly place you could hope for - the Norwegians are very charming. The skiing is brilliantly well organised, fast lifts, no queues and always a smile from the attendants. The ski school is outstanding, and makes lessons as fun as they are instructive. On very cold days, they fed the children hot drinks at regular intervals.

The skiing is easy, with plenty of wide open runs - nothing in the league of an Alpine black run, but some very enjoyable intermediate reds, with very few people on them - I was the first to ski one run, and I am not an early riser! The terrain doesn't have the drama of the Alps, but there is lots of dreamy skiing through trees, perfect for clo

What a fab resort - excellent for beginners, skiers wanting to improve, and of course children learning to ski at the troll club, we're going back for our 3rd year in the same hytte on the Vestlia side. There are no off piste to speak of and the advanced skiers does not have a lot of choices. Geilo is definitely not a resort for wild party animals looking for nightlife or even those chasing difficult runs - better off in Chamonix or 3-Valleys for that. Its no more expensive than the high altitude french resorts (esp. Courchevel), but sooo much more friendly!

Ik als beginnende snowboarder vond het in Geilo fantastisch. Zeer aardige mensen en veel groene en blauwe pistes om veel te oefenen. Nooit, echt nooit, voor een lift gewacht en altijd aan. Ook een paar verlichte pistes. Het enige jammere aan Noorwegen zijn de prijzen. Het is heel erg duur. In een normaal restaurant eet je met z'n 3en voor ongeveer 130 euro. Op de pistes zelf zijn veel leuke restaurantjes.Omdat drank duur is, is er geen levendige après-ski. Ook weinig muziek in openbare gelegenheden, zoals op terrasjes en in eetgelegenheden.
