For our snow lovers Sweden might not be the first place to think of for skiing or snowboarding, but the nature of Sweden has it all. Below 2 of our favorites.
Branäs, perfect for families:
With just over 20 km of slopes, Branäs is the smallest in this list. And not only that, with a maximum altitude of 567 meters it is also the lowest ski area. However, that does not mean that you cannot experience great winter sports here. Branäs is located in a beautiful area, full of deciduous and pine trees. The ski area is friendly and well-arranged, ideal for families with children. The runs are divided into two areas: Branäs By and Branasberget. The nice thing about Branasberget is that you can descend into the village. Children play a major role in the ski area. There is a nice children's area and there are different activities every week.
+- 2 hours drive.
Sälen, for beginners ànd daredevils:
Sälen is a small and quiet village. The ski area is just outside the village and consists of more than 80 km of slopes. Unfortunately, they are not all connected to each other, but are divided over several sub-ski areas. These are: Lindvallen, Högfjället, Tandådalen and Hundfjället. Fortunately, the Ski Shuttle Bus makes commuting easy. The highest point is 1274 meters and from here you can enjoy a magnificent view. Sälen is an ideal destination for families with children and beginners. You will find several easy slopes, children's areas and practice slopes here. But don't worry: There are amazing slopes for the pro's aswell.
There is also a cool fun park. Besides skiing you can do many other activities.
