You have many options for cross-country skiing throughout Vang or if you are more keen on hitting the alpine skiing slopes, go to Tyin-Filefjell which sometimes has the longest ski season in Norway, with snowy slopes until late May or early June. Being in a mountainous area, there are numerous options if you are keen on doing some ski touring. Expect to see temperatures ranging from -25 to 5°C
