The winter park

Vinterparken – the Winter Park – is the place to meet. Every day, lots of deck chairs and blankets are put out to enjoy. Medvinden are the groomed tracks for skating, cross country skiing and walking, that runs for miles over Lake Storsjön´s ice with magnificent views over the mountain area. For children there is a cool snow castle, pulka tracks and an ice fun park. On weekends a local classic – Kolbulle – is served and there are always fires burning for those who want to bring their own hamper. Twice a week, Sundays and Tuesdays the Winter Bath, with its wood fired hot tubs and saun is open to the public. The Winter Park opens on 1. February.
