There are several local hire shops with a wide range of skis and boots with one run by our local partner.

Skiing

Åre, Sweden
Is considered Sweden's premier resort and is divided into two main areas Duved/Tegefjäll and Åre By. There is also a regular free bus service that runs between the 2 centres.

Åre By
at the centre of the resort has the most popular slopes with a good variety of terrain that caters for all abilities. The steeper black runs can be found here and there are various cafes and bars located around the centre of the resort.

Duved & Tegefjäll
Duved and Tegefjäll are made up from a range of beginner to intermediate slopes. The runs are spacious and tend to be much quieter and more relaxed than the runs in Åre By. Tegefjäll is serviced only by T-bar lifts, the pistes here are beginner to intermediate and include some gladed runs. We will most likely go there on our full day as a short excursion.

This holiday is suitable for confident level 6 and higher skiers.
