"Each of our ski areas has it's own unique range of skiing opportunities to offer, and our co-operation with each other guarantees you the opportunity to experience every one of them. Buy your ski lift pass in any of the five centres and this will give you access to 92 slopes, a total of 116 kilometres in all, 44 lifts and 6 cross country courses," says Eskil Solberg in Kvitfjell ski resort.

More than 25 ski areas are due to be open in Norway this weekend.
