There are three ski areas within the Åre ski area: Åre village, Björnen and Tegefjäll/Duved. Below is a description of the different skiing areas, information about parking and more.
Åre village is the most central and largest part of the Åre ski area. This is where you can reach the highest peak, the top of the Åreskutan mountain, and find the steepest slopes. There are a large number of starting points to chose from and you can get there by car, ski bus or by walking. The Åre village system is connected to the Björnen ski area in the east.
