Skiing for the whole family

Järvsöbacken is the perfect resort for a family who wants fantastic skiing within easy reach from Stockholm and Mälardalen. It is family owned since 1984, with a proud history of offering skiing to local villagers already back in 1937.

We offer 20 slopes, 8 lifts and 5 carpet lifts in the middle of the village of Järvsö.
It is snow reliable thanks to extensive snowmaking infrastructure and it is one of Sweden’s most visited skiing restorts.
