  • Despite its somewhat remote location near the Norwegian border in central Sweden, Åre is one of the Nordic region's most frequented holiday destinations. However, with train service dropping visitors off right in central Åre and with two international airports within a one-hour drive, the town is more accessible than a quick look at a map might make it seem.

    The village of Åre is spread out along the shores of Åresjon Lake with three seperate skiing areas accessible from the town; Duvedto to the west, Björnen in the east, and Åre proper in the centre. Åre's namesake slope is located just outside and above the village, and operates from a base elevation of 1420 meters (4660 ft.)

    Åre has a long history of hosting World Cup events, with ski accrobatics and moguls events being held there regularly since 1988. The 2014/15 freestyle calender will see Åre host back-to-back Audi ski cross competition for the third straight season.
