Hovfjället Ski Center
At Hovfjället ski center you can enjoy all of the unique experiences of the Swedish mountain district. The Hovfjället mountain is a nature reserve with a protected nature-type similar to the high-mountain areas of northern Sweden. And you don´t have to travel farther than to the province of Värmland.
In a stunningly beautiful nature setting, you find snow-safe alpine pists, varying cross country tracks and plenty of exciting activities for the whole family.
At Hovfjället you will find the time and possibilities to really enjoy a relaxing ski-holiday. Everything is easy here, close by and marked by a warm, personal athmosphere, providing the ideal means for an enjoyable holiday, for children as well as adults.
It´s no wonder we get so many returning guests, year after year.
Sweden´s southermost mountain-nature
Have a run in our gorgeous pists or enjoy a cross-country tour through virgin nature. Enjoy the food and warmth by the fire-place in our restaurant. Or maybe try one of our activities, like the Finnish smoke-sauna or a traditional sleigh-ride.
After an active day of outdoor fun you stay overnight in our caravan camp, located right in the middle of the Hovfjället nature or in one of our timbered cottages in Gammelbyn holiday village.
Most welcome to discover our cosy, friendly skiing paradise, perfectly suited for the whole family!
Last years season was one of the toughest in a long time, with a lack of snow throughout the country. Despite this, Hovfjället was able to open at Christmas and maintain good skiing conditions for the rest of the season. We probably were the southernmost ski resort in Sweden able to manage this and in order to be even better prepared for this season, we are expanding our artificial snow system further.
On fridays (or saturdays) you may try our new activity and ride a dogsled on Hovfjället.
Centrumhuset with its´ close-to-the-skilift accommodation was very popular last season and in an attempt to offer more beds in this location, we open an additional 3 rooms with 6-8 beds.
We can also offer a brand new sport-accommodation at the skitunnel in Torsby.
The alpine skiing on Hovfjället is always a rewarding experience, for skiers of all levels. All of our 15 runs are laid out with consideration taken to the natural environment and are carefully integrated into the surrounding landscape. The beginner as well as the more advanced skier will find challenges well adapted to their different skills.
You always start from the top of the mountain, meaning that you always start your day with skiing. Our extensive lift system will take you swiftly back up again.
For families with small children, Hovfjället offers an additional comfort as the easier childrens runs ends right at the restaurant. Kindergarden-skiing is available for the smallest children while the older ones can test their skills in our snowboard-land.
….or cross country
Don´t forget to try our beautiful and varied touring- and cross country tracks. Load you backpack up with coffee and sandwiches and glide silently along the track between snow-laden trees in virgin nature. An experience hard to beat!
Hovfjället offers a total of 60km of marked touring- and cross country tracks. We are well renowned for the good conditions we provide, for leisure skiers as well as elite. It´s no coincidence that the Hovfjället area hosts a very successful Ski-gymnasium. Welcome to try out the tracks that has fostered world-class skiers like Gunde Svan.
