Visitor Reviews of Riksgränsen
A Chinnery from United Kingdom writes:
Just returned from a trip around northern Scandinavia that included 3 days skiing/boarding at Riksgransen. Conditions in mid-late April were fantastic, no queues, facilities (loos, cafes) are limited but adequate. None of the groomed runs are really steep but they are interesting (they are not straight runs, and have many camber changes) so do offer some challenges for intermediate skiers. The resort comes into its own for off-piste skiing, which is extensive and it's the off-piste that seems to draw most people there. There is heli-skiing and helicopter sight seeing tours. Riksgransen is not a town/village - there is really not a lot there apart from the skiing and one hotel/restaurant and a few cafes. For those looking for a typical family skiing holiday resort, Riksgransen is probably not it, but for keen skiers/boarders looking for some seriously good snow, a late season, and in a fantastic setting then it is worth a visit.
