Killer backcountry zones, après extravaganza and bucket-list lunch spots with crackling wood stoves, gas-fueled lamps, candles and reindeer pelts – Åre is a destination that should be near the top of any well-traveled skier’s list. At least, that’s what Freeskier Magazine thinks of the Swedish ski resort.

“The epitome of Europe’s ‘other’ skiing experience”

The journalist Donny O’Neill from Freeskier Magazine describes Åre in Jämtland as: “The epitome of Europe’s ‘other’ skiing experience. Think comfortable, challenging, mom-and-pop, backwoods skiing with only a bit of Euro-luxury sprinkled on top. It should be near the top of any well-traveled skier’s list. (…) In Åre, you’re either all in or you’re not at all.”
