hi holy, I spent two weeks in Norway this Feb at Hemsedal. The snow and skiing itself was excellent - no worries there. The accommodation/lift passes/lessons/equipment/clothes shops all very reasonable - but holy cow - the food?
We had breakfast included at our hotel thank goodness and we managed to decipher the menu at the mountain lodges to get the meal of the day (burger & chips/lasagne/meatballs + chips/salad +drink) for about 10 pounds per person. The portions were massive though - this was a real blessing because eating in the evening was horrendous.
OK, everyone knows the alcohol is expensive in Norway - about 5-6 quid a pint - but tbh we're not drinkers so it didn't affect us at all. But we found it was 25 quid for a main course of "proper" food, or 25 quid for a pizza. There was NOTHING for a tenner... I must admit we spent a few nights in our room just eating crisps because we were so horrified by the food prices. The bars/cafes in town were absolutely deserted bar people in there for the free wifi and drinking water - I kid you not!
Lots of people seem to go self-catering but the stuff in the supermarkets is also hugely expensive. 2-3 quid for a loaf of bread for example.
The skiing itself was wonderful and I would definitely return - but with more money!
