The resturant at top started out well when it opened last season with asian inspired menu. Now it is all hamburger and chips, garbage everywhere on the tables and entitled Oslo youths that play fight in the sofas.
The open fire is gone along with the grown up guests and the flaire of alp slope side dining. Now we Are back to rural Norwegian sloppy chips on the floor and cold tasteless food. Quite the disappointment!

Despite climate change is coming (unfortunately) it is still a very good place for skiing in Oslo, even with natural snow. It is a very nice place with very nice people around. The ski rental is also first class.

We were staying in Oslo and wanted to try skiing with our 10 and 7 year old.
All equipment was hired here and everyone was friendly and helpful.
We booked a private lesson and the instructor Karol was good with the kids and me.
Easy to get to on the metro and then the bus, we can’t wait to go back!

If you're going for the ski rental here's what you should do (I learnt the hard way)

1) Get Line 1 Voksenkollen NOT Frognerseteren. From Voksenkollen you can get a free shuffle but which takes you straight to where you need to go. If you get off a Frognerseteren be prepared to walk up snowy, icy hill with no sign posts for approx. 20 mins.
Please note stay near the front of the train because the back doors do not open and if the train is busy you will be staying on until the end (this happened to me).

2) Day pass for adults is kr430 and they also charge an additional kr50 for the plastic card (which is non-refundable).

3) If you haven't skied in a while or haven't skied at all stay by the slopes between the ski hire long and the café until you feel confident to move to the harder slopes (these again are POORLY sign posted).

I personally had a great time (after the stress experienced trying to find the place etc.)

There are 18 pistes graded green to black here. Albeit there is much less variation than this suggests. Basically there are two sides.

One is marked black/red albeit its pretty wide throughout and only steep to any extent near the bottom.

The other side is divided into green/blue/red. Most are a variation of blue and are surrounded by trees so pretty sheltered.

And there are separately three very short absolute beginner slopes. There is a cafe/restaurant here and one each at the bottom of each side. Quality and choice are decent enough without any price premium.

We went mid week. It was pretty quiet on one day - mostly schoolchildren. The second day was very quiet albeit apparently the last day of term so no schools. It was a little busier from mid afternoon.

Chairlifts and a few button lifts serve the slopes - no queues to speak of.
And some of the ski lift attendants were the most cheerful I have encountered around Europe.

Ski hire and lift passes are reasonably priced especially considering prices generally in Oslo. Around £400 for 2 days for 3 people including a locker. We pre-booked skis online the night before. This worked pretty well. On arrival there was a queue out the door of the shop but we skipped the queue to a counter where our equipment was waiting for us. It look a while to get sorted there but avoided the snaking queues of people with no pre-booking. There are lockers in the basement. We purchased this with our 2 day ski-passes (2 day passes not available online). The big lockers take 3-4 sets of equipment and allowed us to leave the skis overnight.

The winterpark is around 30 minutes by train from the centre to the local station at Voksenkollen. Its in zone 1 so cheap to get to - we had a Ruter Billett pass on our phone

From the station there is a bus - albeit on our first day we walked to a waiting bus along with around a dozen other people, its doors stayed shut and drove off without taking any extra passengers.

According to the timetable the next one was in 30 minutes. So we walked. You cross the railway line and then follow the path. When you reach the road turn left and keep walking. You need to carry on into and cross the car park to the ski hire shop and slopes. It takes around 15 minutes to walk. Be careful if you decide to walk back. Its easy to miss the path to the station from the road.

Oslo vinterpark is great for a couple of days of skiing when in Oslo. Not a huge park, but there is enough for everyone.

The rental shop was really well organised and we were fitted with skis, boots and had our lift pass in less than 10 minutes. The staff were really friendly and helpful.

There is a good variety of runs to suit all abilities and a terrain park. Also well set up for cross country, with some of the tracks having great views.

Access is easy, it sits on a main train line and has a connecting bus that meets the train. Make sure you wait for the bus, the first day we were there we walked up the hill to the start of the park only 15 minute, but the bus runs every 10 minutes or so and is so much easier.

If you're in Oslo for a few days, pick the best days for skiing and spend the not so good days sight seeing or checking out the museums. Unless you're a local I wouldn't be tempted to buy a multi day lift pass, one or two days is enough.

A short ride off the Line 1 T-bahn (Metro) Oslo Vinterpark Tryvann is a wonderful day trip or night venue for skiing for the Oslo area. The slopes are a short walk from the Metro Station (or you can wait for the bus) and has convenient night skiing during the week. The conditions were great after a blizzard of snow fell on the slopes the night we were there.

As a visitor from the US I was impressed with its size, the ease in which you can rent skis, use the ski locker room and even eat at a delightful restaurant on the premises. The prices were much more affordable than the Colorado mega-resorts owned or managed by Vail Resorts that I’m used to skiing at.

We arrived about 1:00 pm with very few skiers; probably most were tourists or locals done with the day at work or school. But younger school children followed around 3;30 pm that were taking lesson on And playing in the terrain park.

That followed with high schoolers arriving around 6 pm and families filling the parking lot with more cars, more so than in the daylight hours. The night time saw the slopes at their most crowded time period but while the chairlifts were busy, there never seemed to be a line at the lifts, which were modern high speed quad and six-person chairlifts. The locals speaking English called them elevators, probably because the English call elevators lifts and american call the contraptions “chairlifts”. It was funny to get to try to understand the translation, but you certainly knew what everyone was talking about!

We left around 8 pm and made it back into the city on the Metro in no time, changing lines at at station due to train maintenance and getting later in the evening. The trains were swift and efficient and clean, also.

So it was an afternoon of peace and quite followed by a snow shower that freshened the slopes on beautiful fiords that were perfect for a local ski resort. Not double-black diamond runs and not any moguls that I could see, more in the tradition of groomed intermediate and advanced slopes for the swifter skiers, some having gates that the younger skiers were having fun going fast on. The Norwegians love to ski and it is a culture that begins with the very young skier, probably spending most of their learning years and regular weekend or weekday ski visits at a place like this that is convenient to the great metropolitan Oslo area.

It was great for a tourist just interested in a taste of skiing without having to travel much into the countryside to get a taste of skiing in the fiords in what is touted as being the birthplace of skiing. It was a true pilgrimage to the home of the invention of the sport and refreshing as a skier to have such a nice place to ski (and rent skis poles and boots) for a an affordable price and very enjoyable afternoon and evening of skiing! I will never forget this wonderful “winterpark”!

The Vinterpark is about 20 minutes outside the city centre on the Metro, get the No.1 to Voksenkollen and a bus from there.

What's good: If you are going with young children or inexperienced adults then this is a great place to ski as most of the slopes are green, blue or short reds. There is a black run across the valley, which is relatively gentle too but at least it is quite long compared to the runs on the other side of the valley. We had some private lessons and all instructors spoke perfect english and were all very good and patient teachers.

What's Not so Good: The staff at the rental shop, particularly the female staff were all very inflexible and not really geared to dealing with foreign tourists. For example, it can be hard to fully know how many lessons to book etc. from afar before your first trip. I found the staff very unhelpful in making changes once I got there and I was stuck with the choices I had made. The are very few facilities at the chafing area, there is hardly a bench to sit down and have a bite to eat. Restaurants are few and far between throughout the park.

I would only recommend this place if you want to tie a visit to Oslo with some skiing for beginners, otherwise the service and facilities will let you down as will the level of slope. If however you'd like to ski from within the city limits of a European capital and you are at the beginning of your ski career then it is worth considering.

Caught the train up from Oslo with all the skiers, which is an easy 30 mins. We hired toboggans for a very reasonable price and had loads of fun going down the free toboggan run, which was originally built for the 1952 Winter Olympics as the bobsled run. Most fun Ive had in ages. Slide done, buy hot waffles, and catch the train back up to do it all over again.
