WELCOME TO THE BEST SKIING ON THE COAST! Alpine ski resort in Skellefteå municipality along Västerbotten’s coast with 13 slopes. There are also top-class cross-country skiing trails.

We have 13 slopes, 4 surface lifts, and 1 platter lift.

There are four large parking areas at the top station and platter lift, with three parking areas at the valley station.

We have a children’s slope with a platter lift that is monitored at all times. And, when it’s sunny, our mascot Loi often comes out to say hi!

Welcome to our Fun Park!
We have skiing for those who want to go big and, for those who want to try out skiing, come and give it a go!

At the top station you can enjoy coffee, snacks and lunch, and we serve a buffet on the weekends! There is also a ski shop, ski rentals, lift passes, stalls, changing rooms and toilets.

Our camping facilities are located near to the slopes. There is a common room with shower/toilet, washing machine, kitchen, dining area, TV and WiFi. There’s even sauna and a couple of barbecue huts!

Close to the ski slope you will also find great cross-country ski trails of various lengths, which are taken care of by the local association. Some of the trails are illuminated. The trails tend to be highly popular.

We’ll load your ski pass for the days you want to go skiing and you can use it as many times as you like! If you already have a ski pass, you can top it up it from home!
