A brief description of Åre Bike Park's XC trails. Why not try them all?
1 – KOPPARN – BLUE – 1.2 km (4.9 km when combined with MINERALEN)
A fun short loop starting from the point where Mineralen crosses a link trail. A short climb is followed by a series of fun downhill bends. Try letting go of the brake a little more each ride! The trail then climbs back to the start through a series of great turns. Cycle down via Mineralen or do another lap!
2 – MINERALEN – BLUE – 3.8 km
A great XC route that starts at Björnen's central trail with a nice easy climb in a beautiful birch forest, followed by a long and sweeping downhill through the Sadeln area before a climb back to the centre of Björnen. A wide, even and easy trail suitable for most cyclists.
3 – VALLES GRUVGÅNG – GREEN – 150 metres
A cycle trail for kids through an exciting wonderland.
4 – DYNAMITEN – GREEN – 500 metres
A short loop for young cyclists looking to get started with cycling and learn on a wide and even trail with some fun technical features.
5 – TÄNDHATTEN – GREEN - 1 km
Begins at the ski tunnel under the Vig Björnen road and winds nicely uphill on the ski slope before winding down via gorgeous berms in a beautiful pine forest. It's easy to do a few loops if you feel like it
6 – STUBINEN – BLUE – 1.6 km
Brand new trail for 2020. Stubinen begins with a nice, undulating climb with great turns. For those who feel comfortable, there are some extra challenges on the way up in the shape of narrow boardwalks and alternative lines. Follow that with a breathtaking descent, full of sweeping berms and a magical flow. All topped off with a 90-metre wooden bridge in the middle.
7 – GRANITEN
A new trail due to be finished in the course of 2020.
PUMP TRACK AND SKILLS AREA
In the heart of Björnen you'll find our large pump track, together with a skills area and technical course. The pump track has a number of different lines that you can link together in lots of different combinations. Try it out and see how you can get that little bit faster each time around! In the skills area, right next door, you can hone your riding technique on a range of different see-saws, wooden bridges and small jumps.
GRUVPUMPEN - GREEN – 190 metres
Get yourself up to speed with the right riding technique on our short but fun pump trail located in the middle of the skills area. It is easy to ride, but not very easy to ride fast. Take an extra lap and see how you progress between runs.
