Stryn Sommerski (English: Stryn Summer Ski Centre) is a ski resort in the municipality of Stryn, Norway. The ski resort is located along the 100-year-old national tourist route, Gamle Strynefjellsveien (English: The Old Stryn Mountain Road), 45 km East of Stryn city centre. From Oslo Int'l Airport Gardermoen it’s about a 5 hours drive to the North.

The ski resort opened in 1972 and is the largest summer ski area in Northern Europe. It is based near an arm of the glacier Jostedalsbreen but the skiing area is mainly outside the glacier. The extreme amount of snow fall in winter time makes an average snow depth per June 1st of 6 m (20 ft)

Stryn Sommerski is home to 5 km (3.1 mi) prepared alpine slopes, a first class terrain park and 4 km (2.5 mi) of cross-country pistes.
