Branäs

Ski resorts in Sweden
Lifts (16/22)
Slopes (30/31)
A few miles south of Sysslebäck in northern Värmland you will find Branäs. The resort has 29 slopes, 20 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.

Limited area. Difficult to keep a family together if riding skills vary as light and more difficult slopes do not start from the same lift. Narrow slopes. A plus to the friendly staff in the lift.

Dugs for the family of children who have children who will learn to ski.
Ski rental: KAOS! The little tent was unstructured, long waiting time (if you have not already pre-ordered ski with home delivery but I know I have to try ski boots etc. before so nothing for us). The equipment is worn out, our company had different packages of beginners, intermediates and advanced. Medium and advanced had exactly the same mark on skis ... the bindings loosened TWICE for my skis, such luck not at high speed.
The Aspen terrace where we stayed was nice and fresh.
Can only recommend if it is for children of lower ages to go with.
Otherwise, spend 1h traveling time and take you to Sälen (lindvallen / high ice / bumps) and you will get tremendous much better skiing, variation in slopes etc. ...

Must say that I was disappointed after my visit to Branäs V.2 2020. On the website it was said that all 28 km of longitudinal tracks were open. When you read this, you obviously do not expect large holes in the middle of the tracks, water puddles and large spots of ice. Get "real slopes" open. One hill was completely finished-piste but never opened due to too little snow in the lift. Then I wonder why you do not spray snow in that lift when it is minus degrees !? Many of the slopes were narrow (have understanding since it has not been so cold this year). Can add that there are really only 15 real slopes in branäs. The rest is 50 meters of child slopes and some slopes are counted as two different even though it is the same slope. On the piste map one could read that a new lift would have been built in the big hill, but this lift was not in reality.

Too bad you do not use a seemingly good mountain with slightly steeper slopes that go "straight down", along where the gondola is drawn. Could be good then. Now there are too few real slopes. Service at the mountain lodge bar was rigid and the owner seems to steer the staff tiny so that there is no room for flexibility. For example, was after a restaurant visit refused to buy a bag of peanuts in the bar 22:05 with reference to closing 22:00. "Computer says no". The pizzeria on the 2nd floor requires that you download an app in the mobile for ordering - the staff not trusted with cash! You put a knot on themselves. Feel free to order in the app, but offer guests options!

Perfect for families with children who want a flexible holiday with a focus on the little ones. The ride is nice, the slopes are right for beginners to middle-aged riders. For those who want a tougher challenge there are a couple of nice slopes, but it is not the advanced rider that Branäs is primarily targeting. Boendena, in particular, at Berget is in many cases very well placed. You can rarely put the car on arrival and do not touch it on the whole trip. The back, after skin, shop and cross-country track can be reached in a few minutes on foot if you choose the right area (we stayed in the Vargen, as close to the children's area one could come). All children's activities are free and there is also free childcare in the village. You're not used to it, so get it up! The only negative we experienced was the food supply. The service felt above and unsure of Ladan - making reservations was difficult and we had a great deal of trouble in a "fully booked" restaurant which, however, turned out to be less than half full. So the improvement area would be there. However, we will book again when both adults and children had a really nice and relaxing trip in a cannon cottage.

A 5 can easily get this facility if you build the plant against syslebæk so there will be some red and black slopes.
A lift from amundsbacken to the edge o the hill to the top.
