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.

Vemdalen's best skiing. Minus, however, is the lack of several chairlifts. Then the trailer lifts become long, which becomes difficult with smaller ch... Read more (27 words)

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.
