Snow-boarding & Skiing
One of the most simple and basic winter pleasures can be sliding down a slope in the snow and it is also such good fun. We have range of snowboarding equipment, sledges and also sliding matts that can be used for this and you can enjoy a very gentle short ride down the drive to the Friendly Moose. There are also some excellent slopes nearby for all levels of skill and fun for all the family.
Skiing and Snowboarding with The Friendly Moose
Skiing with the Friendly Moose is a whole new skiing experience. Forget busy pistes and large resorts. Skiing here in Overtornea is a peaceful, family fun event where you can enjoy skiing at a leisurely pace. There are still challenging slopes available for those adventurous guests, you’ll just be lucky enough to have a go in tranquil Lapland surroundings.
We have 2 resorts close by. Avaasaksa just 10 minutes away across the border in Finland is a lovely little resort with three pistes, equipment hire, dough-nut/sledge run and café available. The bigger resort, approx. 30 minutes away offers equipment hire and instructors for skiing and snowboarding tuition. Details on this venue can be found here: http://www.svansteinski.com/en/ There are 10 runs at Svanstein ranging from blues and reds through to some tricky blacks. The mountains are not on the scale of the Alps, but the lack of queues/crowds (slopes to yourself even in Feb ½ term), reasonable prices, friendliness of the place, cosy good value clubhouse and food, good powder and the completely different homely vibe make this an ideal venue for people who are newer to skiing/snowboarding and/or are looking for a completely different skiing experience. The resorts do not have experience of disability skiing, but are keen to try to make this possible.
Please note that skiing is not included in the package and additional charges will apply.
