Located on the Sälen mountain, Kläppen is a privately-owned ski resort. The resort and slopes are nestled amongst pristine birch forests, adding a real charm and sense of nature to the village. Boasting the “best snow guarantee in Sweden” this charming friendly resort is a paradise for families and those that enjoy relaxed friendly skiing. All accommodation is ski-in ski-out, meaning complete ease, no ski buses, and easy access to the slopes. The village centre is easy to get around and, with the only gondola in the Sälen ski area, it allows for easy access to the mountain top for non-skiers.
Family skiing in Kläppen
With well-kept and gentle rolling slopes Kläppen is the perfect destination for family skiing. Privately owned by one family, everything is set up perfectly for families. Uniquely, beginners can head straight up the Gondola to learn how to ski on the wide green slopes at the top of the mountain. A fun, children only area gives a great environment for the younger children to start their journey on the slopes. The resort has even been awarded the best ski area in Sweden for families with children. A visit to Kläppen will give you the right mix of good skiing and Swedish charm to make you want to come back for more, year on year.
