A year-round skiing destination for all

Designed for downhill, cross-country and free skiing as well as snowboarding, Selvaag's SNØ ski arena, the core of the Winter Park masterplan, offers summer skiing access to local people as well as elite athletes who need year-round training. All levels of experience, from beginner to professional, are made welcome.

The design for the ski hall makes use of the natural slope and ground temperature to reduce intervention in the landscape, helping to reduce its environmental impact. In addition, special care was taken during construction to minimise disruption to the site’s ecology. The building's design is inspired by the form and texture of arctic glaciers.

A comprehensive winter sports resort

The 37,000m² ski resort includes a 500m alpine ski-slope and lifts which can carry as many as 5,000 people per hour to the summit. The cross-country trails are built over three floors, giving skiers a total of 1,500m of cross-country skiing.

The 140,000m² Lørenskog Winter Park complex also includes a conference hotel with 350 rooms, a service centre for skis and equipment, service rooms for clubs and teams, classrooms and offices, winter sports equipment shops and rental outlets, cafés, restaurants, a fitness centre and a sports academy for Norwegian ski sports.

Chapman Taylor’s Madrid studio designed the masterplan for the entire Lørenskog Winter Park, as well as the planning and concept design for the SNØ indoor ski hall, in collaboration with the renowned Norwegian architect Prof. Thomas Thiis-Evensen.
