Highly recommended! Everything within easy reach of the train - accommodation, ski system, restaurant and shop. Fits different levels and ages - with new lift rarely queues!

Professional pisteing every day of the week! Extremely professional, service-minded staff with a thought that the stay should be pleasant.
Good arrangement with rent / purchase of equipment.

Järvsöbacken is a charming ski resort. The slopes are usually well-groomed, there is rarely any longer queues in the lift. Perfect for families with children with two children's areas and three rollers to make it extra easy to get up so the little ones can learn to ski / board. Good range of food as there are 7 different cakes / restaurants to choose from.

It was nice during the day.
However, when it was open until 7:30 pm, it was unfortunately so that all slopes except 3 were closed. The south side of the mountain was completely shut down after 3 pm and it was very poor reference. We happened to go into the seine area and luckily got hold of a passing staff who called on scooters.
The lighting in the evening was abysmal, you saw nothing, especially at the anchor lifts on the north side. You didn't see where you went.
Good for beginners during the day, in the evening it was even difficult for us who traveled quite a while.

Think about Åre, Sälen, Idre and all other major ski resorts in Sweden and instead focus on good piste skiing and close to Stockholm - there is Järvsö.
Good piste, wide slopes, good food, good cabins, cheap and short distance to the capital. Go much better here than to, for example, Romme and Kungsberget. Smaller people and hence more riding time.
Previously, the lifts have been small and very tough. Hope that the new six-seat lift before 18/19 will solve it.

Nja, Järvsö is very nice, but feels like a shattered Romme. Good for a couple of hours, but then it's enough. Simply too small fall height for it to be ngt. Tired lifts.

Perfect for the family and / or the beginner / average traveler .... only 3.5 hours from Stockholm.
Sure, you could wish for a little longer slopes, but the slopes that are available are sufficient if you want to get cruising skiing without having to spend a full day in the car to get all the way up to the little bigger ski resorts further up in the country.
With the new sex chair lifts to be built in 2018, you will get rid of the queues that are available during the sports week.
So if you want good skiing, without long lifts and near Stockholm ... yes then, I can not imagine anything better and more cozy than Järvsö.

As old powdered alpev, you are expected to suck and regret a little bit about the smaller Swedish ski systems, but I will not do that in this review. The Alps are one thing and the Swedish slopes something else.

When a skier gets children, the skiing changes a lot. Long car journeys, climbers and steep cushions are replaced by the more nearby mountains, barns and button lifts. Not necessarily worse, but different. It's great to move on to the joy of a new generation.

It is here that Järvsö comes in. Above all, good family skiing is offered. The system is not that big, yet offers 20 slopes and 8 lifts. The barnbacks are flexible with roller conveyors and button lifts that give the kids a chance to get to know the edges of the skis and to taste the snow. For those who want a little more challenge, "Skolbacken" and "Himlabacken" offer a little more slope and longer ride. The slopes around the "north and west lifts" and between the seats on "Järvsø South" are black and red and fun the short minutes they are going to descend. Because the system is so small, it's easy to go away on your own and take a quick ride while the kids go with the other parent.

There are a couple of restaurants in the system. On Järvsø South, in the middle of the hill, is "Restaurang Eftertanke" which upon our visit offered a very good lentil soup and a cheese cake with deer rosé that can certainly be recommended. Well worth a visit! On the north side there is also a hot tub with light grills (indoors and outdoors) and a microwave for lunch during most of the days. Smooth and nice to the wallet! The service in Järvsö is good and the staff are wonderfully helpful. Maintenance of both facilities and slopes is handled exemplary. The slopes are exemplary and they produce impressive amounts of snow, which also gives a fairly good snow depth.

In the middle of the day, Järvsö is visited, but otherwise it has been quiet during our visits. During the weekends, pressure is increasing when people from neighboring towns are on the go, but we have never experienced it as crowded. The locals speak with the prayers in week nine when it's thick with people and many queues. For us who like to avoid long lifts and narrow pistes, Järvsö is a good alternative to Sälen and smaller resorts like Kungsberget and Romme Alpin. In price, the ski passes are a bit under comparable resorts, children under 8 years are free.

To Järvsö you are mainly for children's sake, you get a good range of backs at a good price, do not queue and meet with happy and friendly staff. This with the beautiful heather forests like scenery.
