The small resort village of Tegefjell is famous primarily for its wonderful slopes. When the slopes, roofs of houses and sidewalks are covered with snow, it seems that the entire population of the town is entirely snowboarders and skiers.

In addition, the resort is spread among the most picturesque peaks, overgrown with evergreen coniferous forest. When the branches are decorated with snow, and the mountains with white caps, some fabulous associations pop up by themselves. But, the reality of a fairy tale in this case is in no way inferior, and is a very, very comfortable and modern ski resort. Or rather, even to say, this place is especially loved and popular among snowboarders. After all, all the conditions are created here for them, and even a little more. Firstly.
Secondly, here is one of the best, if not the best, snowboard park in all of Scandinavia. And thirdly, there is a ski school at the service of “doskers”, which employs competent and experienced instructors who speak different languages.
