Deep in the heart of Scandinavia, the resort of Vemdalen offers the combined slopes of three varied and well maintained areas with stunning views and beautiful accommodation. Boasting 2 of the fastest lifts in Scandinavia, as well as the longest, you will have plenty of time to explore the three distinct areas available on your skipass. With such a fantastic location and modern snowmaking facilities Vemdalen offers a snow gaurentee from early December through until the end of April, perfect for those looking to get the most skiing out of their winter.
The village of Björnrike offers fantastic family skiing and is ideal for groups of mixed abilities who still wish to spend time together thanks to the choice of runs at the top of each lift that meet up again at the bottom. Soak up the sun on the rolling south facing slopes and fly both up and down the mountain thanks to Scandinavia’s longest and fastest lift. The village has a cosy atmosphere with a selection of restaurants as well as fun après ski for those interested.
