Kiruna - Slope Life
The area of Luossavaarabacken in Kiruna has three prepared ski runs, but if you are willing to travel a small distance, you can look forward to really wild and beautiful skiing. A unique collaboration between Björkliden, Riksgränsen, Narvik and Abisko has now made skiing possible in four good skiing areas with one lift pass (ask in the tourist office).
132 km from Kiruna there is a place where snow is absolutely guaranteed. Riksgränsen is one of the best ski resorts in Sweden with a season that continues through to midsummer. Slalom skiing under the midnight sun is an unforgettable experience.
The third best descent in Sweden at 538 metres. The longest of the pistes is over three km. The Svarta Björn (Black Bear) area offers exciting off-piste skiing. Good skiing with short queues for the lifts and has been called Sweden’s most underrated skiing resort by the magazine Åka Skidor (”Skiing”).
Mount Nuolja, in Abisko, is Sweden’s only skiing area with exclusively off-piste skiing. Demands a great degree of skill and personal responsibility.
