Hafjell Bike Park in Norway, since its early inception in 2001, has exploded into a world class Bike Park.
It started with the "Wednesday Club", a group of local riders doing shuttle runs in the area that soon became tired of blasting down the Hafjell fire-roads and craved more demanding trails. In Feb, 2002 a meeting between Snorre Pedersen and the manager of Hafjell Alpine Centre, Geir Olsen occurred, resulting in support from Hafjell Alpine Centre, ending the Illegal trail building.
This gave birth to the NM lÃ¸ypa (Norwegian Championship trail) as we know it today. The NM lÃ¸ypa was created with the help of volunteers putting in hundreds of hours of manual labour, with the finished track later on holding a National Downhill race in 2004.
Today Hafjell Bike Park has a Gondola and chairlift in operation and offers 12 Lift Accessible trails plus a Dirt jump spot. The Difficulty of the trails range from beginner to expert with a mix of machine built and natural trails.
Hafjell Bike Park offers in addition to the trails, a bike-shop including workshop and rental service with a fleet of 55 downhill bikes and 25 Cross-country bikes.
In the summer season there are 4 restaurants situated on the mountain serving the mountain bikers and tourists in the resort.
Whether you prefer downhill, cross-country or trail riding, the Hafjell Gondola heightens the experience with the perfect entrance to the scenic Ã˜yer mountain plateau. Maps for cross-country and single tracks are available in the Bike shop.
