Three Reasons to Ski in Sweden

Sweden is one of the most perfect ski destinations in Europe. Swedish ski resorts champion the art of skiing and offer a stylish, family-oriented, and authentic winter getaway. Delve into the magic of Scandinavian ski regions that are just a short distance from their nearest airport.

Sweden ski holidays pride themselves on their laid-back atmosphere, friendly hospitality, and modern living. Many Brits are seeking a more memorable ski holiday, elsewhere from the European Alps, and Sweden is the ultimate winter adventure. Discover why with our three reasons to ski in Sweden guide and be converted before your next ski holiday.

Snow reliability

Sweden is renowned for its world-class scenery, state-of-the-art lift systems, and relatively small crowds. Plus, Sweden’s snow record is one of the best in Europe. Many of the ski resorts open as early as November and wind down in May. The country’s cold climate is to thank for the excellent conditions during the ski season. The snow terrain will keep you coming back for more. It is at such a high standard that the Swedish National Championships takes place in Vemdalen, a favourite among locals.

The great benefit of visiting Sweden for a ski holiday is its non-existent lift queues. Even during the peak weeks of Christmas, New Year, February Half Term, and Easter you’ll be making the most of the slopes. Ensure maximum ski time and minimum wait time – much of a difference from popular European counterparts during the busier periods. Plus, with Sweden being a fantastic family ski destination it is a no-brainer!

The Swede piste bashers ensure that the slopes are kept in pristine condition, offering a fantastic ski experience. Cruise the corduroy until your heart is content (with some resorts even offering night skiing!) and return to your accommodation positively satisfied. Whether you decide to go skiing as soon as the ski season starts or squeeze a ski fix in later on, you’ll be sure to find terrific ski terrain.

Non-skiing activities

The non-skiing activities are one of the main three reasons to ski in Sweden. When picturing Scandinavia, you’ll most likely imagine a winter wonderland filled with husky dog-sledding, ice fishing, and snowmobiling – and you’re right! The non-skiing activities in Sweden are unrivalled and the epitome of winter escapism. Discover the enchanting forests of Sweden as you glide through on your own husky sled or zoom across frozen lakes on a snowmobile. Sweden has fantastic activities to ensure a truly memorable ski holiday.

Not only does Sweden have superb non-skiing activities, but it also has an exceptional array of bars and restaurants. Explore the range of delicious local delicacies in several world-class eateries. Swedish gastronomical roots go back to the Viking times when salting and smoking were typical cooking methods. Many of the traditional methods are still used today and have become excellently refined. Swedes strive to eat as naturally as possible, ensuring local, fresh, and seasonal products are used. For a well-rounded, unforgettable, authentic meal, you must visit a traditional Swedish restaurant during your visit.
