Norway has three main centres offering summer skiing, and whilst they may not be as high as their Alpine counterparts further south, their latitude and proximity to the Arctic Circle still means there's usually plenty of snow left come mid-summer.

FOLGEFONNA

The Folgefonna Summerski Center is located on the north side of the Folgefonna Glacier, close to Jondalen in Hardanger.

The Galdhopiggen Summerski Center is the highest of Norway's three main summer ski areas. It's situated below Scandanavia's highest mountain, Galdhopiggen, on the Juvbreen Glacier at Juvasshytta.

STRYN

This is the largest of Norway's three main summer ski areas. It is situated on the Jostedals Glacier. The opening of the centre is dependant on how much snow there is on the access road, but is normally at the end of May or the start of June. There are two lifts at the centre - a chairlift to take you up to the glacier area and then a t-bar once you're up there. The centre has a skiing range from 1065m to 1600m, giving it a vertical drop of 535m.
