Sälen / Lindvallen is our destination again this year and has been for 7 years in a row. Super destination to teach your kids to ski. We stay in Rødebyen, which is right next to all you need: ski school and ski rental and with ski-in ski-out. Slopes are to the easy side, but great to get your kids started. If you go there outside week 7 and 8, it's not very crowded. Enjoy!
I think Sälen and Sweden is great for skiing, especially if you have children. Lindvallen in particular is very family oriented and there are slopes for all abilities. I personally dislike resorts where there are nothing but steep slopes, so Sälen for me is perfect. There is something for everyone regardless of how experienced you are.
