Ski holiday advice Dressing for the weather Trysil winters are great, but they can also be cold. You should therefore make sure that you and your children are wrapped up warm when hitting the slopes or just spending time outside. Wool and fleece are good under and middle-layer fabrics. Your external garments should be windproof. Mittens, sturdy shoes and warm socks are also a must. Mittens are warmer than gloves. Don’t forget to wear something warm and thick around your neck and on your head. And remember to wear a helmet on the slopes. Currency Many shops and restaurants in Trysil accept euro and dollars. Most take credit cards. There are two staffed banks in Trysil town centre. There are also three cashpoints in the town centre and one at Trysil Tourist Centre. You can easily use these to withdraw Norwegian kroner. Trysil’s charming shops There is a wide selection of shops and services available in Trysil.

 Winter holidays in Norway • • • • • • • • •

Remember that the tread on your winter tyres must be at least 3 mm deep. Use the best tyres for the car’s back wheels. This reduces the risk of skidding. Check that you have the correct air pressure in your tyres. Call the Norwegian Directorate of Public Roads on +47 175 for up-to-date information on road, weather and traffic conditions. Pay attention while driving, as road and weather conditions can change rapidly. Adapt your speed to the conditions. Make that sure you keep at least four seconds behind the car in front of you. Give yourself plenty of time for the journey. Make regular stops. If you’re feeling tired – Stop. Why not take a 15-minute nap before continuing?

Welcome – we wish you a safe journey and a great winter holiday in Norway!
