Downhill skiing in and around Stockholm

Finally! The snow is coming and it’s time to strap on our skis and hit the slopes.  YLC has the lowdown on where to head for a bit of downhill in and around Stockholm. 


All of the locations listed below have ski rental services, provide ski lessons. Some may require you order your lift passes ahead of time online.


Hammarbybacken – Stockholm

The ski season at Hammarbybacken usually begins in mid-December, but take a look at the website for updates when the snowy weather begins. Hammarbybacken has 3 lifts and 5 slopes of all difficulty levels. Since the slopes are in the middle of Stockholm, it’s easy to get there by car (be aware of limited parking), bus, subway, or even by boat.

Ulricehamn Ski Center – Ulricehamn

Now we’re taking you even further – Ulricehamn is just over 3 and a half hours from Stockholm so it may be more of a weekend jaunt than a day trip. But is it worth it? No doubt about it. Everything you need is here, including 7 lifts and 7 slopes, along with a fabulous restaurant for that perfect after-ski meal and drink.
