A good but relatively small ski resort. Keep in mind that It's super hard to get to Hemsedal via public transport. Food at the resort is very expensive. A good thing is that people are very polite, almost no queues at the lifts.

Hemsedal is beautiful and very "alpine". Great selection of bars, restaurants and afterski. Great possibilities for off piste skiing. Also lighted night skiing.

extremely family friendly resort with perfect snow .. the powdery stuff that doesn't stick .. people here incredibly friendly and I would definately come here again. Not the most challenging of resorts but ideal for our young family !

I like the place. I go there to ski every year. A lot of different hills with different levels, great for beginners and advanced.

No, not really. You would have to travel much further north.
