One of the key selling points of Oslo’s Vinterpark is that it is located just ’30 minutes’ from the heart of Oslo’s city centre.
Personally I found the journey to take more like 60 minutes, but either way the Vinterpark is still an incredibly accessible outdoor area, a joy for both snowboarders and skiers alike. Whether it take an hour or just a half hour, we’re talking about a sizeable snow resort being either easy reach of a major european capital. As I’ve said before, it’s a dream, and the fact that such access can be via pubic transport easily turns a Sunday snowboarding to a reality.
To be honest, the journey from the centre of town (Oslo Central Station) up to Olso Vinterpark is very simple, but of course it’s easy to say that now that I have made the journey. Before my own trip last month (March 2017) and when researching I was unable to find a detailed explanation or video, so I decided to make one, and here it is.
Starting at Oslo Central Station my buddy and I head to the metro, ride the T1 up to Volksenkollen and then walk 10 minutes up to Olso Vinterpark before partaking in 2 epic days of snowboarding. Easy when you know how.
Enjoy the video, and here’s a link to the metro map in case you want to see it beforehand.
