To the top! Ski Touring in Åre

Go Ski Touring in Åre! Let go of the lift, strap the skins on, adjust your poles and head to the top. This is an increasingly popular branch of skiing so here are some tips for those who want to get started with ski touring or randonnée in Åre.

There’s something about climbing a mountain on your own devices and earning your turns. Gaining one vertical meter after another. Getting into your rhythm and finding flow in each step forward. Choosing your way depending on the current feeling in your body and the weather conditions. Having a goal. Seeing the target approaching.  Of course, we don’t want to be without the reward, preferably in the form of a perfect powdery ride. But often it’s the mental images from the trip up rather than the conquered peak that stand out when you look back on it. So, whether it’s the downhill or the climb that’ll give you the most happiness, here are some tips for those who want to head to the top.

# Test Tour the Peak of Mt. Åreskutan

This is a perfect opportunity to test your equipment for greater adventures without letting go of the safety of civilization. The tour from the cable car and gondola mountain station to the peak of Mt. Åreskutan measures 180 vertical metres. The path is marked and easy to find in good weather (if it’s a whiteout day with a bad view, cancel the trip). In addition, Toppstugan is open when the top lifts are open and the weather permits = perfect reward for the struggle (and recovery) before going down again.

# The great beyond

If you want to explore and discover new sides of Mt. Åreskutan or other places where lifts don’t even exist, the best tip is to hire a guide. They keep track of the weather, wind, avalanche and snow conditions and take you to the best rides with the best experiences. Contact any of the providers at the bottom of this page to find out more.

 

Heading to the top.

Well deserved rest.

The reward..!

Lot´s of yummy energy.

# Night skiing with headlamp

Ski Touring in the dark is an entirely different dimension. The surroundings come closer and you need to rely on more senses to find your way and master the terrain. As a first tour a reflex trail to follow can be very helpful. There’s a reflex trail in Björnen through the forest up in Förberget where you will find your way with a strong headlamp. The trail begins in the forest between the Lokattliften (the button ski lift that goes under the road) and the crossroad to Fröå Gruva. The tour is a little bit tricky, so a hot tip is to hang along with the Skidcenter ÅreBjörnen on a guided tour for the first time. You can rent equipment and get technical tips with them as well.

# Ski Touring in the Åre Ski Area
