Kvitfjell is not the largest ski destination in the world, but many people declare that it is one of the best. The reason is probably the variation of the slopes skiers will find here. For the youngest as well as for beginners we have small bunny hills and for the more advanced skiers we can offer steeper slopes where the skies really catches wind. Skiers at all levels will find their own challenge in Kvitfjell that is why so many ski enthusiasts return to our destination.
Quality is our motto. Everything that has been and is being build here in Kvitfjell is of the highest quality, and that includes the destination as a whole. More than NOK 200 millions has been invested into different projects, which results in that Kvitfjell is one of the most modern state-of-the-arch destinations in Norway. Kvitfjell is able to cover approximately 80% of all slopes with artificial snow and due to this we are one of the first destinations to open every year.

Chamonix, January 1908 : the resort already has a well established summer season and an international mountaineering reputation, and it is now becoming a great winter sports resort, thanks to the enthusiasm generated by the International Ski Competition. It is the second major winter sports event organised in France by the French Alpine Club (after Montgenèvre in 1907. The organisation was entrusted to Dr Michel Payot, president of the Alpine Sports Club in Chamonix, local president of the French Alpine Club and the first to initiate the famous Chamonix - Zermatt "Haute Route" in 1903. The exhibition pays tribute to Dr Payot and retraces the programme of events for this International Concours where the Norwegian, Swiss and French troups distinguish themselves, aswell as amature teams of mountain guides. Even a female team of elegant skieurs are allowed to partake and they set the scene for the beginning of the 20th century... The considerable success of this cometition launches Chamonix decisively as a winter sports resort, thus fulfulling Dr Payot's dream. This tremendous sportsman and doctor, died prematurely on the 30th January of the same year.
