Ski Weekends in Sweden

If you are looking for a change of scenery and a slightly different experience, then Sweden offers a fantasitic alternative to the Alps. The unspoilt landscape littered with forests and lakes gives an instant friendly feel. The service and accommodation in Sweden are of a very high standard, with some excellent local cuisine. As you would expect in Sweden, English is spoken perfectly. When you add to this a natural aptitude for business and the resultant abundance of high quality conference facilities in various hotels, Sweden becomes a great choice for a corporate ski event.

If you have a group with mixed ski abilities, then the variety of more gentle, tree-lined slopes than can be found in the alps can be very appealing. Sweden's snow is reliable from early December well into May, meaning a long season. Although days can be rather short in December and into January, most resorts have floodlit pistes giving you the option of rather surreal experience of night skiing. Sweden's northern positioning on the globe does come into its own in March, where slopes remain sun-lit and open until around 8.30pm, long after Alpine resorts have closed down the lifts for the night. Cross-country skiing is also huge in Sweden, which can be a great new teambuilding experience for many skiers and boarders.

Often tarnished with Norway's reputation for being incredibly expensive once you are there, cost of living in Sweden's ski resorts is actually on a par with standard Alpine resorts in France, Italy, Switzerland and Austria.
