Ski Weekends in Åre

Åre deserves its reputation for being Sweden's top ski resort. Its snow record stretches from November to May with a superb ski area in a beautiful setting, stretching 10km along Åre’s frozen lake. The overwhelming unspoilt scenery of low, sweeping mountains and pine-clad forests are complemented by the tasteful and colourfully presented wooden lodgings that punctuate the landscape.

There are two main ski areas in Åre covering a respectable 97Kms of marked pistes. A top station of 1,275m above sea level may seem a little odd for those who are used to climbing to 3,000m+ in the Alps, but altitude is not a pre-requisite for good snow in Scandinavia, meaning only a 1 hour transfer time from Ostersund Airport.

With the majority of Åre's slopes classed as blue or red, there is a great selection for beginner and intermediate skiers. The more advanced may consider hiring a guide to experience some of the challenging off-piste areas. The resort's ski schools and guides are highly recommended.
