Branäs

Ski resorts in Sweden
A few miles south of Sysslebäck in northern Värmland you will find Branäs. The resort has 33 slopes, 28 lifts and a fall height of 1,360 feet - the tenth largest fall height in Sweden.

The resort was opened in December 1988 by King Carl Gustav XVI of Sweden and has been a proud destination in Värmland ever since.

Sweden's first world championship in Skicross was held here in 2009 on a specially designed slope.

One of Sweden's five gondolas can be found in Branäs and it has been there since the opening in 1988.

As with many other places in Sweden, there is a shortage of steep slopes here too. If you are traveling with the family, this area is perfect. A more family-friendly place is hard to find. If you are looking for a crazier time, you might be disappointed.

However, the big hill is very popular and the wide hill has enough space for a lot of people.

Poor surface for most visits. Pushed for some snow. The slopes do not withstand all loads.
