Now that I am back I just wanted to let people know what happened on my trip. Interesting an different new for me, a cultural experience that I had not encountered before. Everyone in Sweden speaks English so there were no barriers there. The snow is crisp and fluffy and the mountain is steep and enough to be challenging for a 40 year veteran. It takes a fast massive speed chairlift and a gondola to get to the top so it’s not a monster mountain but most people just ride one chair in whistler or Europe anyways. There is awesome off piste back country skiing you can get there by the lifts so great powder can be found. I love tree boarding and the nice thing about ARE is they don’t seem to ski it out as quickly as North America. We all jam into extreme stuff the second it snows so it turns into hard moguls that day. it was usually minus 2 to 6 and I was never cold, thanks Arteryx for helping with my equipment. There was never a long lineup except one sunny Saturday. The food was super fresh ‘Nordic style’ with a big variety and their reindeer has no steroids and comes from open range farms. Seafood was super fresh and always available. The Apres ski called After Ski had was great with seven places I would say better then whistler. Live music half way up the hill, Live piano bar in town as well. Never made it to Country Bar, there’s a place called Broken which is a good starter place to hang with locals. A full on disco that has two types of music and everyone having fun. Drinks are expensive but it seems the Swedes, Norwegians and Fins like to do it proper. I represented Canada well I hope. Everyone loves Canadians so introduce yourself and you will have a great time everywhere you go. Japan is my next ski trip then not sure where to go from there.
