Sweden Next Country to Open for 22-23

J2SkiNews posted 20-Oct

Sweden, home to Scandinavia's largest ski centre at Åre, is expected to be the next country to open for the 2022-23 ski season, this coming weekend.

The country's Kåbdalis and Idre Fjäll ski centres are expected to open, using snow farming – recycling snow saved from last winter and stored under cover through the summer – to create ski runs.

The two centres will take the Scandinavian total number of snow ski areas open to five, with two ski areas in Finland, Levi and Ruka, open for a fortnight already, thanks to snow farming there too and the region's highest glacier slopes at Galdhopiggen in Norway also still open at the end of its on-off spring-summer-autumn 2022 season.

Over the past few years it has become possible to ski year round in Scandinavian capitals with first the SNO indoor snow centre opening near Oslo, one on the world's largest, in early 2020, then a large dry slope opening in Stockholm last month, created by the same Italian company, Neveplast, that created the dry slope on the power plant in Copenhagen.
