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.

Good when it's good, but after the 20th century I finally realize that it is very rarely very good. The ship is perhaps Sweden's windiest place and therefore the top zone is almost always closed. So you pay full price for winding around in trailer lifts and standing in endless lift queues well below tree limit. Nowadays choose the Alps every day of the week, besides the journey everything is also significantly cheaper, and the overall experience for everyone in the family infinitely better.

Five stars under optimal conditions. Don't go here on sports holiday weeks or Easter. Aim for v.11-13 when it is cheaper to live, less people, better weather and more snow.

The lifting system is quite sensitive to winds. All large chair lifts are mostly closed. You forget to get to the top. It's not fun to pay dearly for lift cards and go with button lifts on blue slopes. It was a waste of time and money for me.

Based on experience from about ten trips to Åre since the late 80s. Not later than 17: 2019.

+ Fall height and size and variation of the ski system. In class with a slightly poorer ski system in the Alps.
+ International stamp, good restaurants and nightlife.
+ Train directly into the village

- Congestion during high season. Don't go your Easter or sports holiday if you don't like crowding. Or go to Duved where it is a bit calmer.
- Wind-sensitive system. When the high zone is closed, it does not feel worth the money on long roads.
- Transport routes.
- Expensive.
