Mentioning Åre usually brings up a variety of different associations. The Alpine World Cup in 2007, international jib contests, SkiStar Snow Parks, intense conferences or fun winter holiday sports camps. Åre is the skiing capital of Sweden and is not facing any major competition in that area. Many tourists often look at Åre as a mini Whistler.

Åre is not a new holiday destination. As early as the 1100s, thousands of pilgrims from all over Europe visited the village during their journey to the grave of St. Olav in Nidaros, nowadays known as Trondheim. In 1910, Åre Bergbana was opened. This is a railway and Åre's first transport to the mountain. Åre keeps attracting people year after year and the interest just keeps growing. It is one of the most visited winter destinations in the Nordic region. The ski area reaches from Duved, located in the west, through Åre to Åre Björnen in the east.
