Take time to discover some ski areas near Åre and find new views and slopes to enjoy at a quieter pace. Here are four tips on family-friendly gems that are guaranteed to give you an extra skiing experience.
Gruvbacken in Huså
A small ski area on the backside of Mt. Åreskutan with 1 lift, 6 slopes and a large off-piste area. There is also ski rentals, ski school and a restaurant. You can reach Gruvbacken from Mt. Åreskutan’s peak via a pisted transport down the north side. Shuttle transportation can be booked to and from Stendalen/Huså (lift pass in Huså is included in the price).
A familiar and cosy ski area with 11 slopes, 9 lifts and a small fun park. The slopes run through wind sheltering woods, which means you can ski regardless of the weather. Head up with snowmobiles to Vita Renen and the lift at the top of the mountain range Renfjället.
Trillevallen and Välliste are 1.8 miles from Åre in a high, sunny and snowy location where the snow lies early. A nice family mountain with 8 lifts and 21 alternate runs – the longest 1600 meters long. A large children’s area with nice slopes, tobogganing, carousel and giant swing. There is also a restaurant with a sun terrace and heating.
Next to the Vålådalens Fjällstation there are two lifts and excellent skiing for both kids and adults. The longer tow lift takes you to the top, from here you have a piste perfect for sweeping carving turns, or if you are lucky you get some powder turns in the ungroomed slope next to the piste. The kids slope has an easy-to-catch lift for beginner skiers of all sizes. When it’s time to refill energy levels Vålådalens Fjällstation serves lunch, lighter snacks and waffles. Or bring something to cook on your own outdoors, at the top of the longer lift there is a wind shield with barbecue place and endless mountain view.
