Sledding slopes

Wear warm clothes and enjoy the sledding slopes. Bring a riding vehicle – maybe a sledge or snow racer and the view set for a coffee or hot chocolate between the rides.

On Frösön you will find Kärringbacken , which is a popular sledding slope for many families with children. Here you can slide down the hill, walk up again and after the energy pushes a little, either have your own homemade lunch bag or take a few steps over to Tages restaurant & cafe .  At  Tages cafe you can enjoy a tasty sandwich &  hot chocolate or maybe take the opportunity to taste the chocolate pastry Frösö kiss.

At Kärringbacken you will also find Tegelvik ice skating rink, so be sure to bring both sledges and skates for a lovely outdoor day.

A little further down from the town square in the city centre, just near the harbor you will find the Winter Park.  Here you will find a snow slide with two lanes perfect for snowgliding. Inflatable rings  and saucers for the slide can be borrowed in the Winter Park. Traditional sledges (pulkor) saucers and riding mattresses for traditional sledge runs, can also be borrowed here.

Another popular sled slope is Olssons Kulle, located just outside the city center of Östersund.
