Dalarna. Road 71. ft? 500. SB Centrumhuset, 0280-187 00. @ Snowboarding World Cup, Speed Skiing World Cup (May), Vasaloppet Ski Race (first Sun in Mar).
Like the majority of Dalarna’s mountains, Transtrandsfjallen, with Salen at their heart, are rounded and undulating and less dramatic than the those further to the north. The highest peak, Ostra Granfjallet, is 949 m (3,114 ft) above sea level. However, the terrain is excellent for both downhill and cross-country skiing and this, combined with its relative proximity to Sweden’s cities, has made the area one of the country’s leading destinations for winter sports enthusiasts.
Whether it’s black runs for advanced skiers, velodrome curves, spines or jumps for snowboarders, or family slopes for children, there is plenty to choose from in Salen. Around 200 km (124
miles) of trails are marked for cross-country skiers and summer hikers alike.
Salen is the starting point of the 90-km (56-mile) Vasaloppet ski race to Mora.
