The Norwegian students got two hours to pack up and leave, as the Swedes didn't want troublemakers and noise. 'Go home immediately!' was the message from the angry Swedes.
500 Norwegian college students were Tuesday thrown out from SkiStar's ski resort in Sälen. The reason was that they were considered to have acted far too loudly, writes Universitas.
It was on Tuesday morning Haakon Eid and around 500 students from the college Kristiania in Oslo were told to pack up their things and go back home to Norway again.
"We've been overrun by SkiStar and local authorities. We have been asked to go home immediately," writes the Norwegian University Student Union on Facebook.
The reason was that the students were thought to have been a little too rowdy, and among other things, they have created a brawl at a nightclub and violated local regulations.
At first the students thought it was a joke. They had come to Sälen on Sunday, and the idea was that they would stay and ski until Wednesday. Now they suddenly got two hours to get ready for the journey home. At noon the buses would take them back to their homeland.
- We spent NOK 2,500 kronor on this each, but were thrown out on day two, says Eid, who thinks that the whole thing was poorly planned.
Together the students had put up over a million NOK for the trip, which was organized by the student union. The trip was marketed with that the students would be feasting "on the Swedes' party level" who had prepared for the event with 15-20 security guards in hope that it would not derail too much.
Morten Lauvås, who is chairman of the Student Union's events department, thinks it is partly SkiStar's fault that it ended as it did.
- The reason was that we were placed in the middle of an area with many families. Therefore, a lot of complaints about noise and trouble came, he says.
SkiStar will not go into exactly what was wrong with what the Norwegians did, more than that they did not follow company rules. The rowdy Norwegians were therefore not allowed to remain in Sweden.
To Scandinavians, and especially Norwegians, however, it is pretty obvious what went wrong: Alcohol. When Norwegians travel and drink, they drink till it's empty or they pass out, like the Vikings did.
