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.

Think that Åre has most of what you can expect from a ski resort in Sweden. There are guaranteed other places that can offer more deep snow, better children's slopes or more advanced slopes. But if you are going to look at the whole with the range of restaurants, skiing transports to Åre etc then we think it feels perfect. If you are there in high season and feel that there are too many people, go to Duved / Tegefjäll. Cruel slopes but with fewer skiers.

I have been in Åre now for a whole week. Before, I have been to almost every other mountain in Sweden. I recommend never going here as it is terribly bad. They close lifts for no reason and the slopes are not challenging. I will never return I can promise

Sweden's best ski mountains. Skistar, however, is skinny o requires that parents of young children and beginners should pay to go in the boot. This means that they choose other facilities

Sweden's best ski resort. There is something for everyone and there is a reason to fucking many old
ski lifts settle here.

My "home place" for both piste and tour. The back and the gorges in all glory but the summit in Tege is really fun.

Nightlife - Åre probably has the best party of all ski resorts in Sweden, not so strange as it is the largest ski resort. The skiing is incredibly fun with it.

The village - A very cozy village moving in, both in the evening and at dan.

Food - There is very good food both on the mountain, but especially in the village. The cheapest option is Max, which, however, is more expensive than other Max restaurants in the country. If you want really good food there is to find.

Skiing - I've been here 6-7 times and it is quite a few days the snow conditions in the piste have been good. Very hard pistes. High zone has probably been off at least half of all days. Poor visibility and rain have not been unusual. If you want sun and good skiing, go to the Alps. It will be just as expensive.

If it is sunny and good conditions, it is really cruel, unfortunately it is not so often as said.

Everything around skiing weighs up so much that I have returned, otherwise I would never have gone here.

Year New Year 2018-2019 is not just "bad luck" with the weather. Skistar once again proves that they are worst in the class when it comes to reliable, information and customer care. How can lifts stand still due to technical malfunction and maintenance work in the middle of high season. Why does it never happen when I am in the Alps or USA. Lack of competence or weak management? Something is really crunching in the organization. Skistar's strong side (based on a shareholder perspective) must nevertheless be taken unreasonably in relation to the delivery of product. Lousy!

It started out as a vacation and ended as a home.
We traveled to Åre as a family in June three years ago. The plan was that I would drive Åec for the first time and we would be happy to have a holiday. The girls were eight and five years old, we had no great expectations for activities for the kids but found a playground in fantastic environment for the whole family. The range in the summer impressed both with activities and that the service and the restaurant supply was large. We as a family have always liked the winter holiday best and for several years dreamed of apartment or cottage in mountain or alpine environment. After Åre proved himself from his best side, thoughts were raised about an accommodation around Åre. That fall, the right accommodation appeared and the right opportunity came up and we struck. A condominium in Tegefjäll. This became our refuge and haven for two years. We have spent all the free time in and around Åre during all seasons of the year. An amazing spring with skiing, a summer with cycling, running and canoeing. A wonderful autumn with hiking and market and then stopping by a little and reloading for a new winter season. The winter of 2018/2019 was the winter when we packed the bags took leave and moved to Åre. New jobs and new school for the girls. New acquaintances and Sweden's best playground as a garden.
Åre has something for all ages and all levels of knowledge. A variety for all wishes and budgets.
Now we hope for a lot of snow and many new acquaintances throughout the family new garden.
