We used Slaata’s ski rental service for a week. The multi hire, allowing us to alternate between downhill and Nordic skis was fantastic value, especially as the weather was a bit mixed. When it was bad we took to the trails so none of our holiday was wasted. We also took the Tuesday night Cross country taster course which was absolutely brilliant. I’m ashamed to say that I’ve forgotten the instructors name but he was a great teacher and taught us all a huge amount in a short time. It gave us enough skill to feel confident to do some enjoyable trips.
Highly recommended. Thanks.

We came here as we wanted better snow than many of the Italian/French resorts can provide. Sadly the wind has meant that some days many of the lifts were closed but even on these days there were still plenty of skiing on offer at Slaata. Great cafe and staff on the lifts were very helpful. When all the lifts were open there was the opportunity to ski over to other parts of Geilo which was good fun. Great for intermediate skiers (some of the blue runs are hard for beginners, especially when windy). There are also other activities to do such as cross country skiing and snow mobiles. We will definitely be back!

We spent a week using this ski resort and loved it..

All of the staff at the hire center and cafe were friendly and helpful.

The ski instructors were very knowledgeable and not too pushy. We all made improvements at or different levels from great instruction.

The wait for the ski lift was only 5-10 minutes during the week. At the weekend this took longer, it took 10-15 minutes, which is still not very long.

There's a good range of nursery slopes for children and beginners and also some good long runs further up the mountain for the intermediate skiers.

The only negative is that there is only 1 ski buss that goes back to Bardola hotel at 3:25pm. If you want to leave before that then you will have to walk or get a taxi. The walk took us about half an hour on ice with a 5 year old. I'm sure it could be walked in 10-15 minutes normally.

A huge thank you to everyone at the Slaatta Skisenter for ensuring we had a fabulous week of skiing. The centre and hire staff were helpful and efficient and the cafe served great food at pretty reasonable prices (for Norway!). But a special thank you to the ski instructors who were absolutely brilliant. We were a family of four beginners and by the end of the week we were all skiing with confidence. Instructors Noel and Ebba both helped our teenage daughter overcome a crisis of confidence and nerves - she now can't wait to come back and ski again! We really can't recommend the skisenter highly enough and Geilo makes a great location for any mixed ability group. Thanks again!

The place is very good for beginners. My son had never tried skiing before. There was a beginners area with a “conveyor belt” to pull you up. Very practical for novis skiers to try it out before using the “plate lift” to go higher up the mountain.

Great ski centre with everything you need for a day on the slopes. All of the staff that we met were very friendly. Special thanks to Joffrey at the ski school who was an excellent teacher, and to Sandra who made communication before our trip really easy!

I am writing this on behalf of Harriet who is a young disabled lady who had 3 days of skiing last week in Geilo with Slaata skisenter, right from the beginning of making enquiries about accessibility, equipment and how I could go about organising a ski holiday for Harriet they could not have been more helpful. Gavin and Sandra gave us all the information we needed to arrange the skiing sessions for Harriet, plus one of her carers to have lessons as well as equipment for all of us. On top of this they were extremely helpful giving us guidance about accessibility in Geilo, getting around and where to stay. Harriet had such a fantastic time skiing, it really was the highlight of the holiday, Gavin took the time to get to know Harriet and make sure she was happy the whole time including arranging getting us over to a different side of the mountain to experience some more of the resort which was not as simple as you might think! All the staff at the centre were very helpful and friendly and were all interested in how Harriet had enjoyed her time skiing. I really would reccomend Slaata for anyone who wants to try out skiing for the first time, whether disabled or not, but of course highly reccomended for the bi/mono ski experience for anyone disabled!!! We were all very sad to have to leave.....:-(

We are in our 50's and havent skied for many years. But this was good for us with simple slopes building up to many more advanced. We stayed overnight in a chalet and stepped out onto the snow, Hire place and lifts all within 200 metres.
Skied for a few hrs, then time for a glass in the bar or chalet. WOW, just perfect
