Skiing in Åre
Åre is Scandinavias largest ski resort and a year round thriving small town at the foot of Mount Åreskutan. Three main ski areas with 42 lifts and 100 kilometers of groomed slopes as well as snow parks and off piste areas offers great skiing for all ages and preferences.
Åre has been Sweden’s alpine sports hub for the past 100 years. Two alpine World Championships, first in 1954 and later in 2007, as well as several World Cup events have helped shape the town and laid the basis for strong growth in the form of investment in hotels, tenant-owner property and holiday cabins, as well as restaurants, shops and activities. At the moment Åre is gearing up again for hosting yet another World Championship in 2019.
The peak of Mount Åreskutan measures 1,420 metres above sea level and offers breathtaking views of the mountains of western Jämtland. Take the Kabin cableway up to 1,240 metres above sea level and hike the last bit up to the top. There you find Topstugan – Sweden’s highest café and a view to post about on social media.
Mount Åreskutan and the surrounding mountains boast an impressive 102 runs and 46 ski lifts.
All tough Åre offers a wide range of off slope activities, spectacular nature and memorable gastronomical experiences, alpine skiing is still the main reason why people travel to Åre in the winter. The Åre ski pass grants you skiing in all three ski areas ranging from the children’s paradise and beginners-friendly Årebjörnen in the east, over the steeper parts of central Åre with its large off piste areas, to the well-groomed carver’s heaven in Duved.
