Ski Resorts in Sweden

Ski holidays in Sweden offer pistes set amid forests, lakes and untouched wilderness. The resorts also offer guaranteed snow, so if you are tired of keeping your fingers crossed with resorts in Europe, maybe Sweden is right for you.

What's The Atmosphere Like?

Sweden offers good food, great accommodation, amazing service and the feeling that you really are in the snowy wilderness! There are also a huge number of activities to do off the slopes. Après ski is fairly relaxed, with entertainment laid on in the hotels, cafes and bars within the resorts. You'll be able to enjoy Swedish delicacies such as meatballs, smoked fish and reindeer. Another attraction of ski holidays in Sweden is the fact that nearly everyone speaks English.

How Many Resorts Are There?

55 in total but the best known resort is probably Are.

Staying Here

Ski accommodation is generally in hotels, apartments and cosy chalets and many hotels have excellent leisure facilities. Spa facilities are also very common.

Getting Here

Ski resorts here are not always that easy to get to. The best airport for Are is Trondheim in Norway just over the border. An alternative is to get an internal flight from Stockholm to Ostersund.

Who Is It Best For?

Ski resorts in Sweden offer a wide range of runs, slopes and cross-country trails. We think it is the perfect destination for anyone wanting to escape the purpose built resorts of other countries. Ski Sweden and get facilities for every level of skier and snowboarder. The southern mountain resorts are particularly good for families with the two main resorts of Are and Vemdalen good for all levels of skiers.

If you're a boarder looking for a challenge, try the northern resorts, such as Riksgransen, for some great off piste.
