Skiing for the whole family

Järvsöbacken is the perfect resort for a family who wants fantastic skiing within easy reach. With a motorway nearly all the way it’s easy to get here and the train station is in the middle of the village. Järvsö offers reliable snow conditions thanks to it having one of Europe’s most modern snow canon systems. We can produce 57 600 cubic meters of snow each day with the right conditions. This is the same as 5 760 lorry loads! We are proud of that. Children have a special place in Järvsö – they are namely our VIP guests.  No one is more important here than the children. That is why we devote many of our efforts in developing the children’s areas, making it easier to start your skiing career and have fun at the same time.

Children are our guests of honor

That’s why we have large children’s areas with travelators, three easy button lifts and three easy, wide slopes.

The lifts are within easy reach from the ski rentals and ticket sales. Our friendly staff will help you with the ski lift. We prepare amusing and challenging runs, with smaller jumps and bumps, every morning. These are usually the children’s favourites.
