Family cabin a short drive from the base of Trysilfjellet (for ski and biking)
About Gus Neil
We (Gus & Anna) live in the UK and bought the cabin in early 2017 after a number of years visiting the area for skiing with our two young boys. We love visiting Norway/Trysil with the fresh air, fantastic views, and busy itinerary of skiing, cycling, rafting, walking etc etc.
Gus Neil purchased this Cabin in 2017
Why Gus Neil chose Trysil
Hytter Ann lies in the hyttegrend (the cabin ground) about a 6 minute drive from the carparks at the base of Trysilfjellet (the main access to Norway's largest downhill skiing resort). The location is "ski in/ski out" for the groomed cross country tracks which can be accessed from the bottom of the garden. Solskiva ( obvious in summer!) Hyttegrend houses around 100 cabins of all shapes and sizes and there is a great family atmosphere with children often found playing around the hyttegrend (so please drive slowly). The hytter comprises 3 separate bedrooms (2 doubles, and one bunk bed room with an additional single bed pull out), a mezzanine area with two floor mattresses (hugely exciting sleeping place for kids), a shower room with washer dryer, a well equipped kitchen, dining area, sitting room, and externally a large terrace and separate ski storage and boot room. Liking life's 'creature comforts', we've equipped the cabin with amongst other things: - a nespresso machine with milk frother (to get that caffeine hit first thing) - moccamaster drip coffee machine - high speed unlimited broadband wifi - Apple TV with c. 60 movies; c. 25 tv shows - DVD player - Netflix - Amazon Instant Video (albeit with limited content due to geographical licensing restrictions) - Amazon 'Alexa' Echo with Amazon Unlimited Music subscription giving instant streaming access to over 40 million songs. We've tried to equip the kitchen with everything we have in our own kitchen at home so that catering when on holiday is as easy as when at home. Similarly, we've tried to make the living area as comfortable and cosy as possible with plenty of seating, high quality leather sofas, and a warming wood burner. We have furnished the cabin as far as possible with locally sourced and produced furniture and ornaments to give a more home-from-home feel.

Trysil is the largest ski resort in Norway, and arguably the best for families. Despite not being that well-known internationally, Trysil has a long ski heritage – they were holding ski races here over 150 years ago. The ski resort is also the largest in Norway, and arguably the best for families – praise indeed in a country that boasts some of the world’s best family skiing. Unusually, the volcano-shaped Trysilfjellet (Trysil Mountain) offers the best part of 360 degrees of linked skiing and snowboarding, so you can follow the sun all day if you wish. Gladed slopes with long, satisfying boulevard skiing girdle the wooded lower slopes, while the upper half of the mountain is treeless and a little flat at the top. It’s almost as if two rather different mountains have been fused into one. Blue (intermediate) and black (difficult) runs often lie side by side, enabling families and people of different abilities to remain close together. The mountains themselves are very pretty, with most of the runs below the tree line. There are two main village bases on either side of the mountain where most of the bars and restaurants are located. The Høyfjellssenter area is probably better for beginners, as all the local slopes around the village are gentle greens, with the steeper runs higher up the mountain. That said, the Turistsenter side also has excellent nursery slopes right next to the centre of the village, and quick access to some beautiful tree-lined reds and blues above the village. Between the two lurks the slopes of Høgegga, where seven steep black runs are accessed from one high-speed six-man chair. So while the resort is definitely best for beginners and early intermediates, there is a surprising amount of challenging terrain for expert skiers. Furthermore, it’s quick and easy to navigate around the mountains and state-of-the-art lift system, so if you have a couple of hours to yourself while the kids are in ski school you can still have a really good, challenging ski and be back in time to take them for a hot chocolate. Night skiing is also big here, with great swathes of the mountain basking in orange floodlights three nights a week – great fun if you’ve never tried it. The ski instructors are exceptionally friendly, and the welcome throughout the resort is excellent, with everyone speaking near-fluent English as their second language. Moreover, even though Norway is generally regarded as an expensive country, prices for food, equipment hire and lift passes are in fact similar to those in mainstream Alpine resorts. You may pay a make a little bit more for beers and a bottle wine, but the uncrowded slopes and wonderful service more than make up for that. Off the mountain there is also plenty to do. The two main hotels have excellent swimming pools – particularly the Radisson Blu with kids – and if you want to try something special for a day check out the horse-drawn sleigh ride through the forest, or try your hand at mushing your own crew of husky dogs. Après ski is fairly laid back here as it is more of a family resort. However, there are several good on-mountain spots for late-afternoon live music sessions, and a decent selection of bars and restaurants at the village bases.
