Björnrike

Ski resorts in Sweden
Björnrike in Härjedalen has been operating for a number of years with Vemdalsskalet and Klövsjö/Storhogna by Skistar (a company that owns Åre, Trysil, Hemsedal, etc.) in Sweden and Norway. The family-friendly ski resort has 11 lifts, 16 slopes and 470 meters fall height. In 1968, Björnrike Fjällhotell opened up and the first cable car also opened that same year. Just like Vemdalen, the mountain here consists of boulders that almost make it look like something blew up, and you will find pine, fir, birch and aspen trees when you walk around in the woods.

The same lift pass can be used at all the resorts (Vemdalsskalet, Björnrike and Klövsjö/Storhogna) and you can try many different slopes if you choose to visit them all. The ski resorts are located a short drive from each other.

The event calendar in Björnrike is usually packed with everything from big airs and girl camps to slalom competitions.

Here you will also find a snow park with a very good reputation. The slopes are said to have something for everyone with different inclination and difficulty levels. The heat huts are strategically located for easy access.

Björnrike gets a big plus because it is considered to be reliable when it comes to having snow.
Björnrike belong to Vemdalen.

Good skiing areas, BUT ...
Unfortunately they have sold the parking areas to one of those pirate companies that only care about making money. I.e. download the app and give them your credit card number.
Don't go there unless you have your parking covered.

Excellent ski area, offers skiing that suits both the expert on the slopes and the families with children. One hope is that VY will reopen in the center. Feels like Björnrike's best restaurant location is falling apart.

There is really something here for all park skiers, beginners and advanced. Well-functioning lift system, good accommodation near the slopes. Will be back for year 5 now :)

Best slopes in Vemdalen. Not as icy slopes as in the shell and better length of the slopes. Less queues and more sun :). Best drop height.

Awesome good, family friendly.
The restaurant supply and grocery store could be better though, it's better in the shell ..

Have been skiing here for about 20 years. Mostly sports holiday (v7) but also off season. Mostly liked Björnrike at the beginning of my visit, totally charted a snap up compared to Sälen and worth every extra mile in the car. Wide and varied range of slopes, there is something for everyone. Real mountain experience, sometimes even with reindeer on the slopes. Unfortunately, the favorite slope has been turned off from and to recent years due to training for professional riders. In recent years, I think some of the charm has been lost. Björnrikecentrat's café / restaurant / pub had a lovely atmosphere that was not renovated but now seems closed until further notice. The Department of Vålkojan is closed until further notice. Skistar has put its whole concept over the resort with all that it means ....... Skiing is still ok to be Sweden in general, the genuineness is scarcely bit by bit removed and replaced by Skistar's rocky holiday resort. Hurry up here before it is too late, myself I look for what I appreciate with a Swedish ski resort .....
