Ready steady winter, the fabulous season of the year when degress below zero makes you lyrical and minus means something positive. Winter has taken a firm grip on the Swedish ski destinations. Åre, Vemdalen, Funäsfjällen, Lofsdalen and Bydalsfjällen are covered in a thick layer of snow and winter is here to stay until beginning of May. January tempts with marvellous weather and great snow conditions throughout the region of Jämtland Härjedalen that turned in to a Winter Wonderland.
-A period of frosty days has made the snow base firm and stable, while the snowfalls have brought fluffy powder and a softer top. The mix means that your skis carve really well. We can offer world-class skiing in the entire region, says Linda Wasell, at Jämtland Härjedalen Tourism.
In Jämtland Härjedalen there are innumerable opportunities for finding everything ranging from family-friendly quiet pistes to fresh, untouched powder snow in steep couloirs. There are plenty of ski resorts in the region; the one you choose depends on your preference in terms of personal capacity and the pace at the resort.
