“Skiing - Downhill and Cros-country”
Reviewed 23 February 2014

I went for the cross-country skiing in preparation for one of the Vasa loppets. There are 4 tracks based at Vendalsskalet (2.5, 5, 7.5 and 10km) with excellent up and downhill (and some tight turns!) but you can also extend out to other parts of the area along prepared tracks (6 - 8 km) so you would never be bored. Single track for classic and wide enough for skating. Reasonably well marked. Was able to put name down for free cross-country ski lesson plus also a demonstration on waxing skis. No charge for x-country skiing.

Downhill and snowboarding appeared to be fantastic with 5 pull/chair lifts within 200 metres of the centre (and the hotels and most lodges). Some of the runs were floodlit. Excellent ski-shop for hiring all equipment (like a production system - just worth looking at the racks of skis and boots - incredibly well organised. Very friendly and helpful.
For the people staying in lodges you could bring your own food for lunch in "warm rooms" where there were microwaves. There was also an outdoor bar-b-cue- help yourself!! Plus a burger restaurant (Sibylla). And large supermarket (CIA) =- all within yards of each other

“Good during the summer also”
Reviewed 29 May 2013

During the winter the ski resort always are very busy, but it is nice during the summer too. There are plenty of things to do specially in July. You can go on nice walks, you can fish, golf and go to auktions.
