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.

V.8 in Åre offered both sunny and cloudy days, just like an ordinary Åre week. Arrival by train was very convenient, but from there a taxi is recommended to avoid carrying their bags (provided you do not live near the station). I was surprised by the short lift queues, there were not many minutes left in the queue except for the cab. The boat did not live up to my expectations, but it was flat in many lots and with narrow slopes. Just the flatness and the many transport distances I thought was someone who unfortunately was a lot of.

The ski buses that went between systems worked perfectly and always arrived at an agreed time. The evening bus was also the cruel which led to being able to go between the home and the evening skiing.

Duved and Tegefjäll are the ones who draw up Åre's grades when I did not think it was particularly good. In Tegefjäll there was a splendid woodland shed between the trees, while Duved offered fantastic carving backs with nice lute and a lot of fall height.

Going to week 9 and hoping for a new snow, Åre beats everything in Sweden. Been in Åre twice this season and are not dissatisfied. The ravines are amazing after dump.

Sweden's best skiing, undoubtedly, also Sweden's most accessible, just climb on the train, sleep and sleep, you're late, right up to the lifts open! This year, the third year was on the run with the whole family in its own caravan, next year, it becomes a sleeper car!

Take the train to Åre! How smoothly. Step on the train in the evening, have a nice dinner and sleep in a comfortable bed. Wake up, have breakfast and get off the train. Check in, tighten your pants and ski and have a fun day before you, rested and spicy. So instead of spending money on a hotel night in Åre, put them on the trip and get both. Has both flights to Östersund and has taken the train several times over the years. The train wins every day, with a good environmental conscience.

Best place in Sweden without a doubt. The closest you can get the alps without going to the alps.

Too little hills and too many old lifts from the 70's !!!! Build out the skut / high zone, so we get new and better driving opportunities! Then always cool weather (from the Norwegian coast) when I'm there!

Large and complete with a cozy city. Should you cheat over something is that the price level is very high, at least under the law.

The only smolken:
Åre always finds out of a hurry to not open the high zone during the earliest weeks. Always ice creams on the cabin, but nobody works to knock it off (it seems to infect even the Tväråvalvift, so it's also closed). If the reason is that they want to keep on the snow until v. 9, or if they think there are too few people to keep that part open - do not you know? BUT, do not pay for it! Some of the lift passes back, if the top is not open at least 5 days would be more fair. Or how does Skistar?
