Shopping Mall
“One of Scandinavia’s biggest shopping center is in Charlottenberg (16 km). Because the big cloth and sport shops have little storage place, you can get good bargains when there come in new collections. Apparently biggest food shop in Scandinavia is Hypermat. However, Lidl is at least as good ( and cheaper (: and cheaper !). ”

Restaurant
“Comprising a collection of atmospheric log cabins on a mid-mountain plateau between the Turistsenter and Høgegga bases, Knettsetra has an idyllic setting amidst the normally snow-laden pines. One small hut serves only waffles, while across the terrace the main restaurant knocks out cheerful but not particularly cheap favourites like elkburgers, club sandwiches and meatballs, with a very tasty side of slaw. You queue up to order and pay for your food. When it's ready it is brought to you at the table, so it's a good idea to find your spot first as it can get very busy, especially if you want to eat inside. There's a wonderful sun terrace for later in the season but from Christmas up to half term you will probably want to eat inside. Loos are in a separate cabin, so zip up for the walk, but they are pretty good for a mountain restaurant – no French-style mountain long drops here. Next door is the Stallen Pub, the best bet for an on-mountain après-ski bar (see separate review). On Thursday and Friday evenings, the restaurant opens for special fondue nights (reservations essential): on Thursdays they run a snowcat transfer for NOR 100 per person, and on Fridays you can ski there as there is night skiing then. Address: Mid-mountain between the Turistsenter and Høgegga bases, at the top of T8 lift Contact: 00 47 62 45 15 50; knettsetra.no Price: lunch around NOK 200; lunch of the day around NOK 100; Fondue evening NOK 325 (not including drinks) Opening times: Daily, 11am-4pm.

Bar
“On the first floor of the corner building nearest the slopes of the small parade of shops at Trysil Turistsenter, with floor-to-ceiling windows to take in the view, Ski Bistro’n is a great little find. The lunch buffet is great value and you can serve yourself (and eat as much as you want), so it's perfect for hungry kids. There is always a good salad selection, soup of the day and a few hot daily specials to choose from such as pasta bakes and lasagnes. They also offer à la carte options at lunchtime (burgers, club sandwiches, Caesar salads, pizzas), and at dinner they do good spare ribs, steaks, fish and pasta dishes. If you're hungry, try the mixed grill for two, but be warned the portions are enormous! Address: Torghuset, Torggata 6, Trysil Turistsenter 2420 Contact: 00 47 62 45 38 80 Price: lunch buffet NOR 129 per person, family (two adults and two children) NOR 320; pizzas around NOR 135; dinner around NOR 350 Opening times: Daily, 11am-10pm Reservations: recommended Payment type: credit cards accepted”
