Ski news from Sweden – Alpine skiing, cross-country skiing

Sweden has a long winter season. It starts as early as mid-October when the first ski resorts open for cross-country skiing on old snow. And it ends on the midsummer weekend in late June when you can still go downhill skiing – at Riksgränsen, 200 km north of the Arctic Circle.
