Skiing, skiing and fun in the snow
Skiing technique is learned through play and fun, which characterizes everything that happens during the camp school stay at Den Norske Fjellskolen. A lot of play is planned in the snow. Individual guidance is provided as needed. Throughout the year, we plan trips of different lengths and degrees of difficulty. The program is constantly adapted to the students' skiing skills. Therefore, no prior knowledge is required. Høvringen has a stable climate with good skiing conditions in a well-groomed trail network. If the weather should still be harsh, we pull down into warm forest terrain.
