Skiing in Åre ski area
Åre's ski area is divided into two parts: the high zone and the low zone. In the low zone you ski below the tree line and there are a large number of red and black slopes known from the Alpine World Cup. The easiest way to get to the high zone is with the cable car or gondola lift. From here you can either head straight down towards the village or towards Ullådalen and Rödkullen for easier blue and green slopes. Around Åreskutan you'll find summit tours and challenging off-piste areas just a few steps away from the slopes and the cosy slope restaurants. The slope will take you all the way down to Åre square which is the perfect starting point for a night out at one of the village's many restaurants, bars and nightclubs.
