Holidaying in Sweden is a very different experience from the Alps. Being further north, snow cover is guaranteed by latitude, not attitude.
Several of Sweden’s ski resorts are within the arctic circle and stay open until June.
The ski areas in Sweden are smaller with fewer challenging slopes but good intermediate and beginners runs, nearly always on Pine tree-lined slopes. Off the slopes, there are plenty of other pass times other than skiing. These include cross country skiing, ice fishing, snowmobile safaris, ice climbing and dog sledging. Après ski is taken very seriously in Sweden, with live bands performing from mid-afternoon, not to mention the possibility of seeing the spectacular Northern Lights displays.
Daylight hours are shorter, but most ski resorts have some floodlit runs. By early February, Ski lifts normally operate between 09:00 and 16:30. By March it’s still light at 20:30.
