Ski resorts in Sweden
Sälen includes Kläppen, Lindvallen/Högfjället, Stöten, Tandådalen/Hundfjället

Sälen is the collective name of several different ski resorts. The village of Sälen is the main site, hence the name. The start of Vasaloppet (a 94 km long cross-country race) is just south of the village.

There are actually four large winter sport resorts surrounding Sälen. Lindvallen-Högfjället and Tandådalen-Hundfjället are owned and operated by Skistar. You can use the same ski pass in all four systems, and you can ski between Lindvallen and Högfjället and also between Tandådalen and Hundfjället. You will need to take the ski bus/car if you want to go between the two ski resort areas, so to say (it is simply not possible to ski from Högfjället to Tandådalen).

Kläppen and Stöten have separate owners, which is why you need to buy separate ski passes for these ski systems.

Sälen village has a population of 652.

The resorts are spread out a bit. Stöten is situated the furthest north at the mountain. Tandådalen-Hundfjället is located 11 km further south and then Lindvallen-Högfjället another 9 km south. Kläppen is the most southern village and located 14 km from Sälen village (the distance from Kläppen to Lindvallen is about 20 km).

If you are looking for some nightlife, then you need to go by taxi.

The saying “Practice in Sälen, ski in Åre” has come about due to the absence of “real” mountains in Sälen. The round hills don’t make for good postcard images, which is why Sälen is predominately visited by families. There is hardly any off-piste skiing within the seven villages in the Sälen area. However, there are some really good off-piste runs at "Väggen" in Tandådalen.

Keep in mind though, that Sälen is located near Trysil in Norway (35 km from Stöten, just over 70 km from Sälen village) where there is significantly more impressive alpine skiing available with its 685 meter vertical drop, 30 lifts and 68 runs at one and the same mountain and with ski runs in all directions.

Sälen is Sweden's skiing living room, everyone can enjoy it! Good skiing, wide coherent system with varied slopes. Lindvallen is perfect for families with children, but our teens also enjoy this! Tired man at Lindvallen can go for a few days in Tandådalen and Hundfjället instead. Great variety and nice area. A couple of rides in the Trollskogen in Hundfjället are a must to small and large. The range of restaurants, cozy cafes, waffle cabins and not least Experium with a water park makes Sälen a perfect choice for skiing holidays.

Great system for families with children. Each individual system is easy to understand, with varied backs and nice and helpful staff. This year's news Fun Park in Lindvallen became a fun element when the children had become a little warm in the clothes. An advantage of having several separate systems is that you can vary from the weather. A clear day when the temperature fell to below -15 in the shadow of Hundfjället, the sun was beautiful in Tandådalen. The only thing missing is the slightly longer slopes and, to some extent, the possibility of off-piste.

Well, I think the seal is good to go on to be quite far south. If you struggle you can find pillows and the parks are good

was in the seal for the first time now under the sports license and became a lot of trouble. Previously I have been to Åre, Vemdalen and Hemsedal. With this year, I did not have time to go so far as it was sealed. Sälen think I was very boring

Here is a list of negative things:

The facilities are spread out
fall fall is completely useless It's like going on a hill not a mountain
-Highly finding good restaurants
-Isiga slopes
-Dull variation on the slopes
-developed liftsystem
-Massages of people on the slopes, many of them are beginners
The queue to the park in Tandådalen is sick long
-smal slopes
-things some sort of center we plant the sealed city is not so close to any hill
-The wall was very narrow and gently ice-skating if you were going to ride it
-long lifts that often stay (happened twice when I was there that the elevator stopped for more than 20 minutes)
-My little children than young people and adults
-Long car rides during week 9 we got stuck in a queue that took 1 hour

Can not write anything more
Positive things:

The lamb and the pig
cliff park
-The staff were brilliant and helpful

The worst ski resort I've been to during a sports holiday would rather go to Åre much better and nicer.

I usually go to the seal all winter holidays and then agree to the tandådalen and hundfjället.
I like the variety of the slopes of the seal.
Hundfjället has beautiful pistons and offpiste trails, and the Tandådalens dreamsheet is really not to complain. + that they have a nice new big air jump in Tandådalen.
Now they have also got a big air bag in Stöten. : D

Why do everyone complain about Sälen?
Sure ... Åre has better backs for the experienced, but Sälen has something for everyone, children, beginners, moderate and advanced skiers!
Kläppen has won Sweden's best snowpark 6 years in a row!
Lindvallen / Högfjället is best for children and beginners but also has some really fun slopes for advanced skiers on the lift, EXPRESS 303! Lindvallen also has Sweden's most popular back, Gustavbacken, counting the number of riders / season.
Tandådalen / Hundfjället with very varied skiing with spider forest, speed-ski hill and a drem park. The back "wall", Sweden's steepest pisted hill, leans 45 degrees, which advanced skier does not love that hill ??
The shocks that have the highest fall height and the longest slopes of the seal for those who really want to feel cramps in the thighs :)

Does not Sälen sound really wonderful? Instead of 1 mountain you can choose and vary with 6 mountains :)
The meeting in Sälen is so beautiful, here are people who want to go skiing, Åre is going to go to people who have nice clothes and wear the skis on their shoulders!

Since, in principle, the whole area has a record of snowflake this year, I'm actually very positive.
Have been to Sälen many times before and then maybe some worse memories, but this time the hills showed off their very best side.
In addition, there were not many people at all.
Good ride, well-groomed runs and absolutely amazing off-piste skiing at Hundfjället!

Also had the privilege of staying at Tandådalens Camping for the first time, which was a pleasant experience.
Why live in a cabin when you can stroll in a caravan !?

In conclusion, a very good grade, so ..

Now it was a couple of years since I was in Sælen last!
By the time I was there, it was like a newcomer. Then the demand was not that big and the Selen knew as it rang for the 6-7 days we were dying.
Ie As a newcomer, it's a pretty good stall, low backs, many lifts, the donkey on the slopes! ;)

But now I'm getting a little bit better, so there's nothing that could get me back to Sælen when I remember how the slopes were here and know I'd laugh at them now! I do not go to the park so I can not get it.

So the account is honored:
Do you celebrate a family, a new brother, a park ranger or a party rider, you might have been in a hurry. Perform everything on the family front of the children neither the kids nor the grandparents are particularly well-behaved riders.
But before those who are more advanced riders will not get out of the hills of Sälen! ;)
