We booked ski lessons at Slaatta for our kids, assuming we could get the regular ski bus there. You can’t.
There are 2 buses in the morning and 2 buses out in the afternoon. Meaning if you are with beginners you are stuck with limited options.
There is 1 button lift, with access to 2 short green slopes. To get further afield there is a very steep and uneven button lift. Not suitable for young kids who are learning.
It was suggested we could walk the 15 mins to the ski bus stop, but impractical distance for little ones in ski boots.
We were not the only ones who thought the ski bus went there. So many people asked the bus driver, he said Slaatta didn’t want to contribute towards to running of the bus.
Such a shame that an award winning resort can’t effectively collaborate on facilities for the visitors.

I must admit that I am very disappointed with this ski resort.
Reading the reviews, we expect something at the level of Ischgl or St. Anton.
Nothing could be further from the truth. Old, unmaintained infrastructure.
Long, tiring drag lifts. Fixed-grip lifts. The rollers on the poles are square and cause stomach
At stations you can hear the creaking of unlubricated or worn components.
Grease in the snow that drips from the ropes.
The ski lifts do not have bubbles, which seems obvious in Norwegian conditions.
Mogul on a black one that has not been groomed.
On one of the slopes, the music plays so loudly that it kills the pleasure of communing with nature.
Investments in hotels and other luxury are disproportionate to the ski infrastructure
that resembles that of Eastern Europe.
Everywhere in Geilo and on the slopes there are banners informing about the "World Ski Awards" winner
2019/2020/2021/2022/2023 Norways Best Ski Resort!
What is this award for? Is this some kind of joke? Does Trysil know about this?
Good snow conditions are an advantage in Scandinavia, so the resort has no influence on them.

It was a real Instagram vs reality moment!

Booked through this company as they were the only one to reply to my initial enquiry. Very helpful communication about how to book and was able to do this online. Very quick and easy to collect the equipment and ski passes, no queues like in other ski resort. Free storage area for ski equipment.
Excellent ski lessons with Mia and Matthias. Highly recommend!

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.....:-(

Thank you, Veronica, for a lovely review. We are very proud of the services we offer our clients here at Slaatta, and in particular our adaptive lessons. It's great to hear that Harriet had such a positive experience and I will pass on your comments to her instructor, Gavin. We look forward to seeing you again in the future!

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
