Downhill

In Sälen you'll find eight downhill trails of varying difficulty levels - everything from easy beginner trails to tougher and more challenging trails. Bring your bike in the lift - an easy and practical solution.

The downhill trails mainly consist of machine excavated trails heading down the mountain. The trails are of varying difficulty (green/blue/red/black) with added jumps, drops and cambered curves. You need a LiftPass to reach the top of the trails, and you will need protective gear for yourself and a bike with suspension. Downhill is suitable for everyone with bike experience, from older children to adults, depending on the difficulty level of the trail.

Trails

Mr Melin (Blue) 8

The perfect blend between an excavated trail and preserved natural elements. Mr. Melin contains more gentle stone, jump and curve sections that give a genuine mountain trail feel but without its most difficult elements. Both new and experienced cyclists can enjoy the ride down the mountain and its great flow and then choose either the Pink trail or Charter to head back down to the valley.
Start: Gustav Express summit station
Type of trail: Trail / single track

Mrs Melin (Blue) 

An easier start to the Mr Melin trail, connecting to the Pink trail. 
Start: Gustav Express summit station
Type of trail: Trail / single track

Charter (Red) 9

Charter is for those riders who want higher speed and effort from the Pipeline and the Rosa Leden. This trail is red and so requires more of the rider. This trail is based on speed, jumps and flow. We got some assistance on the design from Tom Pro from Gravity Logic, who designed the trails in Whistler Bike Park, among other places. Charter starts off together with the Mr Melin trail but branches off before Mr Melin joins the Pink Trail.
Start: Gustav Express summit station
Type of trail: Machine excavated flow trail

Sherpa (Black) 3

The Sherpa is a technically demanding and at times steep single track featuring mountain terrain, roots and stones in the ground. The characteristics of the trail differ markedly from the dug-out tracks. On this trail, it's important to find the right line and master the surface. The trail runs alongside the Orren lift from the top of Gustavbacken (the lift to the left of Gustavbacken when you're facing the mountain).
Start: Gustav Express summit station
Type of trail: Trail / single track
