Åre

Åre is Sweden’s biggest winter resort and offers skiing for everyone from beginners to experts. Åre hosted the Alpine World Ski Championships in 2007 and the popular resort, which is just 380 metres above sea level, stretches 10km along a frozen lake and enjoys a beautiful setting amid the spectacular scenery.

Åre is a small town in the centre of Sweden  boasting stunning scenery with it’s low sweeping mountains and snow-covered forests. Mt. Åreskutan rises 1420 metres  out of a trough of copper ore in central Sweden’s Jämtland province, towering over shining snow-capped forests and sparkling frozen lakes. The ski lifts to the resort’s main slopes start from just above the bustling village square and the resort stretches from the village of Duved in the West to Åre Björnen and to the East of Åre itself.

Located on the eastern slope of Mt. Åreskutan, Åre began as a small mining village with just 200 inhabitants. Over the past century, it has grown as a favored hunting spot, then to a natural health retreat and finally, to a flourishing ski town. For centuries, the fresh mountain air and stunning natural landscape have been attracting visitors from around the world. With plenty of restaurants, a variety of shops and facilities and a bustling nightlife, it is no wonder Åre has become such a popular ski destination.

Sälen

The Sälen Ski Area includes seven separate ski areas making up a combined total of 145km of downhill skiing. The area boasts 86 individual pistes served by 100 ski lifts and is famous for hosting the Vasaloppet, the oldest, longest, and largest cross country ski race in the world. Snow cover in the region is generally very reliable due to the Scandinavian climate and Sälen is able to augment natural snow.

The first settlers arrived in Sälen as early as the 8th century, when there was no downhill skiing, simply hunting, fishing, farming and raising livestock in the mountain cabins. Now during the Winter season, tens of thousands of tourists flock to the area to ski the various resorts and to experience and enjoy winter activities in the region. The area boasts ample skiing for every level of skier and boarder and has several full scale terrain parks to boot. In addition to the skiing there are plenty of restaurants, bars and activities to keep visitors entertained.
