Lots of ways to get there, and being just 150km from Oslo Airport, it is probably the closest decent sized ski resort in Norway for Foreigners.
By Car: It is about a 2.5 hr drive ... just simply follow the E6 North untill you reach Lillehammer ... keep following it for another 15km until you see a sign to Hafjell and voila! You are there!
By Bus: There are loads from Oslo and (I think) Gardemoen, Oslo Airport.
By Train: Catch train from Oslo Airport or Oslo Sentrum (Main train station) to Lillehammer and then catch a bus which departs fairly regullarly during the day
Typically Norwegian Hytte's (cabins) which are self catering and privately owned. Awesome places to stay ... if you can find someone who has one (or work for a company that does!)
