Lillehammer hosted the Winter Olympic Games in 1994, and I was a part of the voluntary team that stayed up there for 3 months working my butt off to make things happen. Lillehammer is guaranteed to have snow most part of the winter (November to March), and has got some of the most wwellprepared skiing-facilities in Norway. You will find everything you ever wanted from a skiing-resort. Hafjell offers slalom/downhill/snowboarding and more. Kvitfjell has a more steep downhill-slope than Hafjell. You've got bobsleigh (available to try for inexperienced sleighers also), skijump, miles and miles of cross-country-slopes, freestyle-skiing, and the list goes on and on.. Lillehammer itself is a small town situated about 2,5hrs drive north of Gardermoen Airport in Oslo. The nighlife is really exciting, and theres lots to do even on a rainy day. You'll find hotels and motels in every price-range, and even cabin-rentals. If you'd like an Olympic experience of high class, then I recommand Lillehammer and area as THE place to go. Norway is a quite expensive country, though, so make sure you buy your duty-free quota before landing!! (YES, you can actually buy duty-free going to Norway, but not from) Happy skiing!
