Welcome home to us!

Skiing for the whole family.

Järvsöbacken is perfect for the 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.

Järvsöbacken – children’s best

Children are our guests of honour. 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.

Ski-school

Taking part in a skiing lesson is both fun and a learning experience. You will make new friends and learn how to ski at the same time. 

We have a variety of ski school groups, for the 3-year old beginner to the teen who has skied all his/her life but and wish to learn the carving technique. Lessons are held either in a group or as a private lesson. A private instructor can also be hired for a group of friends.
