Snow overview for Sweden
Monday 24 April 2017

Monday 24th April saw many resorts closed down for the 16/17 winter, making it a missed powder day for some Norwegian resorts. Improving conditions in Hemsedal (50/50cm) thanks to light snowfall over night, moderate snowfalls continued all day. Trysil (65/65cm) also received light snowfall today, with cloud forecast to remain all week. Are (0/70cm) remains open in Sweden, light snow and cloud today made for typical spring skiing today.

A steady mix of sun and cloud is expected this week, beyond today there is now significant snowfall in the forecast currently.

Visited: January 2014

First of all orientation, the slopes are more or less all south facing. At this latitude the sun does not get high enough in the sky to melt our precious snow.
My favourite runs were from the new Sadelexpressen chair (37). The lift is so new it does not appear on the English piste maps. There are nice long blues through the trees, and some wide easy reds. The lift even has heated seats. Further up the mountain I enjoyed the reds around the Tusenmetersliften (28). There is a nice bowl west of the chair, whilst to the east some good off piste. The resort was short of snow when I visited, some rock dodging was required off piste, and the Tvravalet area was closed. Lower down they were busy making snow. I did head as far east as one can go. Bjoren looks great for children, but the tows in that area are slow. Curiously it was warmer up the mountain than in the village.
In January the lifts close at 3PM, so the Apres Ski starts early and is taken seriously. There are some great restaurants. Werséns in the main square looks fairly modest but step inside and you could be in one of Stockholm’s most fashionable brasseries. Ölbarren, were a set menu of 20 plus dishes is served to you by the restaurant’s chefs, is an extraordinary experience. Try the Moose Chilli at Timmerstugan. I stayed in the Hotel Diplomat which oozed Swedish Alpine charm. The Black Bull mentioned in some guide books is no more. Despite the early close, I was surprised that the majority of lifts only open at 9.30AM.
Of the three Scandinavian resorts I have visited this is the most developed, the most charming, and the most all round winter resort, (there is plenty of other non skiing stuff to do, but I am not qualified to comment on that).
With hindsight I should have flown to Trondheim, which is not much further than Ostersund, but has much better connections to the UK. Note that the Trondheim bus only runs on Thursdays, Saturdays & Sundays.
