Fewer and fewer Norwegians go on ski trips, survey shows

A recent survey by Statistics Norway (SSB) shows that only 21% of Norwegians went on a longer ski trip in the woods or the mountains in 2020, compared to 29% in 2011. 

The decline occurred at a steady pace over ten years. 

This also applies to the shorter ski trips.

In 2011, 42% of Norwegians answered that they had been on a shorter cross-country trip, while only 33% answered the same this year.

Steady decline

The decline is greatest among those with higher education, where the proportion of those who go cross-country skiing has fallen from 67 to 53% among those with a university education since 2011. 

For people with primary school, the proportion fell from 27% to 20% in the same period.

There is also a decline in alpine skiing and snowboarding from 2011 to today. 

Much of the decline this year may be due to a lack of snow in the 2019/2020 season.
