Tour skiing in Ullådalen

Tour skiing is fun in all types of weather. Choosing the right trip for your enjoyment and endurance level is important. We’ve listed below three favourites in Ullådalen that work for different levels of adventure and skill.

# Lillåstugan

Längd: 1.9 km one way

Lillåstugan is an easy tour from Ullådalen’s upper parking lot. They are known for their waffles, but serve a variety of food, baked goods and coffee. The route there is a bit up and down so make sure you can brake downhill and skate uphill. Waxless skis are the easiest choice for small skiers.

To get there: Park on the upper parking lot in Ullådalen. Aim towards Mullfjället and follow the trail over Ullån. Keep left and follow the signs to Lillåstugan.

Alternative: For a longer tour to Lillåstugan, on your way home or both there and back, follow the tour  Till Lillåstugan långa turen. For a longer tour on your way there, follow the 5-kilometer trail north past Ullån, keep left uphill towards Mullfjället and then follow the signs to Lillåstugan down towards Åresjön again. For a longer journey on your way home, take the same loop in the opposite direction.

# Ullsjön & Stendalen

Length: Optional

The trail starts from Ullådalsstugan but can be reached from both the lower and the upper parking lot in Ullådalen by following the Skutskjutsbacken (biathlon slope) upwards. There you’ll find a marked trail that enters the forest and heads straight between Mullfjället and Mt. Åreskutan. Be warned, the first 5 kilometres is a shared track with oncoming traffic. After following this trail for a while, you can choose to turn right towards Stendalen or straight ahead towards Ullsjön. If you choose Ullsjön, continue on the trail marked ‘Skutan Runt’.

Ullådalen offers great touring.

# Skutan Runt

Length: 19.2 km one way

A serious day trip, with varying conditions. The trail goes from Ullådalen and ends in Åre Björnen. The beginning of the trail is the same as above. Continue into the birch forest after Ullsjön before reaching an open terrain on the northern side of Mt. Åreskutan. The highest point of the trail is 900 meters above sea level and there’s a beautiful view of Kallbygden from the backside. The trail climbs upwards after about 12-13 km and ends with a long descent to Björnen, which can be quite a challenge for tired legs.
