Father of modern skiing

Norway, Telemark, and Morgedal have a special place in the history of skiing. The word ski comes from the Norse word skíða, meaning cleaved piece of wood. The international word ‘slalom’ is from one of three terrain tracks that in Morgedal was called slalom, meaning slight track in the hill.
Several of the well-known Norwegian pioneers of skiing were from Morgedal: Sondre Norheim, the brothers Torjus and Mikkel Hemmestveit, and polar explorer Olav Bjaaland.

Experience Norwegian Ski Museum in Morgedal: from Sápmi ski culture, ski making,snowboarding, twin tip, ski waxing, and Norwegian pioneers of skiing and Polar expeditions.

The museum is open year round. There is a gift shop here with books, gifts and souvenirs. Innsvingen Café serves tasty homemade traditional food.
