Nordseter and Sjusjøen were originally mountain farm communities, which - with their easily accessible forest and mountain terrain - have developed into one of Northern Europe's best skiing destinations. The mountains are 850 metres above sea level and only 15-20 km from the centre of Lillehammer.

The area offers a wide range of skiing alternatives, including approx. 350 km. of prepared cross-country trails. The tracks run all the way to Lillehammer and Øyer, and even connect up with the Olympic tracks at the Birkebeineren Ski Stadium. You can ski in both forested and mountain terrain, and all the trails are clearly sign posted.

Hafjell Alpine Centre is located 15 km north of Lillehammer. The natural geography enables the runs to continue several kilometres down the hill, conveniently converging at the base. The runs are carefully designed to meet all levels from the "easy-peasy" to the "hard'n heavy". Reaching the top you are rewarded with fantastic views and a vertical drop of 830 metres before getting on the lift again. With the hills exposed to the sun and sheltered from the icy mountain winds, all you have is gentle touch of winter. The terrain park is the most popular in Norway, always featuring the last trends and the most spectacular tricks. A new Gondola will be opened in December 2006.
