Åre  is a well-known ski resort in Jämtland, Sweden, approximately 80 km from the city of Östersund. The ski lift system is on the Åreskutan mountain with its highest peak at a height of 1420 meters, but the highest lift ends at 1260 meters, so the peak has to be reached by a snowmobile lift. The village and ski area are accessible by bus and train. The nearest airport is Åre Östersund Airport.
 Get in
 By train
 By air
Åre Östersund Airport: There are domestic flights operating daily from Stockholm to Åre Östersund Airport (SAS  and Flynordic ), direct bus from the airport to Åre costs about 25 euro one way. There are also charter flights from London, Moscow, Helsinki and Copenhagen.
At the airport you take the local train to Hell (takes about 3 minutes). In Hell you take the train "Mittnabotåget" direct to Åre Railwaystation, it is worth checking the time of departure from Hell as the train only runs twice a day (in both directions). Generally there is a morning train at around 0900 and an evening train at around 1700. Avoid arriving at Hell station too far in advance as it is far less comfortable than waiting a few hours in a cafe at Vaernes airport!
If possible, pre-book your train tickets  (from station "Vaernes" to station "Åre"). The ticket price is 145 SEK one way although there are discounts for students.

The visibility is actually better in the floodlight than in natural daylight. There is also night skiing on other pistes as well, but the most brilliant is found at Gästrappet and Lundsrappet.
