Åre is a small town made up of traditional wooden buildings. The mountain caters mainly for beginner to intermediates but there are plenty of slopes to be explored along the valley. The Scanners have produced some excellent snowboarders and free-riding skiers and this has to be, in part, the result of great terrain parks. There is a 1.4 km long park and a half-pipe at Åre but, in addition, there are two smaller parks to play in if you can't yet mix it with the big players. Off the slopes at Åre there is plenty to do; sleigh rides, x-country skiing and so on. Eating out is pricey but overall the nightlife is excellent and very lively! Just take some warm clobber and plenty of cash.

Resorts close to Åre (Are) include: Trillevalen (32 km), Sundsvall (36 km), Storlien (46 km), Bydalen (76 km), Grong (85 km),

Visitor Reviews of Åre


Nikolas from United Kingdom writes:

Been there 4 years ago. Great place over all, for my taste anyway.
Well laid out resort, some nice tree lines at the back of the mountain.
Snow park is one of the best I've seen both sides of the the Atlantic.
Village might lack the charm of the some of the places in the Alps but the super friendly people more than make up for it.
Apres-ski: awesome.
Take a ride on snowmobiles around the lake and beyond.
