We enjoyed skiing here. V much for intermediate at best, but lovely, well pisted slopes. We arrived at the ski centre and our skis were there. We wanted more than basic skis, so we managed to exchange for better ones, but this wasn't guaranteed; there had clearly been a miscommunication in the booking. Thankfully, they had some premium ones to hire; they were excellent skis. V impressed. We hired passes and had booked ski lessons for our 4 year old. Lessons only run in groups Monday- Friday. We arrived on Saturday. So we had two days of taking out little one out, which was fine: the nursery slope was well designed, with an excellent slope for the next level up- both with easy button lifts to access them. Unfortunately, our (just) 4 year old had been put into the wrong ski lesson; she was put into white group, which was for beginners, apparently because of her age- but we both used to instruct, so she had skied since she was 2, and we go to our local dry slope every week. Basically, she was put with total beginners, and we were told there was no space for her to move up. Long story short. For two days we were told there was nothing we could do. I ended up going to another instructor (after complaining at the ski centre, and attempting to speak to the boss, to no avail) and he took her, even though she was 3 years younger than the group was supposed to be. So she had fun, but basically didn't learn anything. We took her out in afternoons to actually challenge her; it was basically childcare, not actual ski lesson. The ski lessons are supposed to be 80 minutes. The instructors arrive at 9.45/50, and about 10 by the time all the kids are scooped up and off.. (understandable).. but they're back by 11.00. It's reasonably priced, but not 80 minutes! When we instructed, we would be there 5 minutes early, and we'd plan our lesson with the people we had.. it all seemed very relaxed but quite disorganised. We booked our other daughter into Trollklubben which was was fantastic. They were wonderful. Our little one loved it, and we were able to be flexible; we picked her up early and took her out on baby skis. She had one key worker all week, and it was gorgeous: warm and sunny and lovely. Totally fantastic. They need a small shop on site for the self catering. Milk/bread (even at a small extra cost) but it's a ridiculous distance and challenge to get to the supermarket. The bus goes on time, and is good. It doesn't go very often, though, so getting across to the other side of the resort is quite a challenge if your kids are in lessons!

Unbelievably helpful to a skiing halfwit. Boots were super comfy. All issues dealt with in a friendly fuss free way. Thank you

This is a great attraction, specially with child! As all thinks in Norway, it's expensive for foreigners! But it's a good mountains to ski beginners and snowboarders!

It is important to never ever compare the Alpine resorts to the Norwegian resorts. Geilo Skiheiser is distinctively different and has it's own charm. It's a great place for beginners to intermediate riders / skiers, with a modest selection of wide runs that is not overly crowded, making it a great place to learn. The staff are awesome, friendly and super accommodating as well! A great place for a chilled-out family-friendly skiing / snowboarding holiday. Disclaimer: Travelled in March 2015

Great place. My son loved the snow parks with the variety of different ramps, boxes etc. Good variety of runs in both sides of the mountain although the Geilo side would benefit from new chair access as only the Central area has one. That said lovely slopes, quiet so new queues. Highly recommended.
