江苏体彩七位数18149期:Skiing in Sweden
Alpine and cross-country, snowboarding and snowparks? We have the resorts, we have the slopes and we have the snow parks. We have skiing for every style and everyone. What we don’t have is the elbowing for poll position at the lifts.
You can ski almost anywhere in Sweden wintertime! With more than 100 ski resorts it can be hard to choose where to go, so here a short list of “best for” in snow-covered Sweden.
Best for alpine skiing and off-ski activities
?re?in central Sweden is Northern Europe′s biggest and brashest sports resort, offering virtually every skiing style and a huge range of other winter sports and activities. It is generally considered to have the best downhill ski runs in Sweden and the ?re-Bj?rnen part of the resort is excellent for newbies.
?re offers awe-inspiring black pistes and highly challenging off-piste slopes, as well as Skistar Snow Park ?re. It also has an abundance of easy skiing for children and beginners. ?re and nearby Duved (10 km) also offer world-class slopes for snowboarding, telemark and carving. Heli-skiing is also available.?
In addition to skiing there′s a wide range of other activities, such as snowmobile safaris, dogsledding, ice fall climbing and much, much more.?
Being famous for its nightlife, you won′t find many places in Europe that party as hard as ?re during the season. Bars and live music venues, Tott Hotel, Fj?llg?rden and ?reg?rden are busy from 3 p.m. on and there is a mini-city-sized offering of high quality restaurants and eateries.
Best for off-piste snowboarding
Riksgr?nsen?wins it for having no terrain park and almost no trees (it’s way too far north). We’re talking mostly off-piste at Sweden’s northernmost ski resort where you can catch the Aurora borealis in wintertime, and snowboard in a t-shirt summertime under the blaze of the midnight sun. Snowboarding rarely gets more exotic than this.
Best for snowparks
Kl?ppen?in Dalarna province, central Sweden, has been awarded Sweden’s best snowpark nine years in-a-row for having multiple parks that are dialled into the needs of beginners, experts and pros. There are four parks to choose from, depending on your level of expertise.
