Our 1000-year-old city is home to age-old skiing traditions, new technology, Norway’s largest university and 230 000 enthusiastic inhabitants who will warmly welcome athletes, leaders, guests and the public from all over the world. In 1997, we gathered hundreds of thousands for an unforgettable ski festival. The whole of Trondheim was a Championship city, and the entire region was engaged.
We are ready to do it again.
Throughout the region of Trøndelag, skis and skiing are a natural part of everyday life. Children get their first pair of skis when they start learning to walk. Some of them become world champions. Marit Bjørgen, Anders Bardal, Petter Northug and Johannes Høsflot Klæbo all come from Trøndelag.
Our winter culture is part of us – and we are eager to share it.
Granåsen is now going through major reconstructions, with the aim of becoming a state-of-the-art sports venue, catering to the high demands of modern day sports. The spectators will be close to the athletes; feeling the tingle and excitement of the atmosphere. We are building facilities for the elite, as well as for everyday recreational sports. Innovative technology, like climate friendly snow production, are amongst the solutions that will improve the experience for athletes, spectators and the media.
