Hi all,
we are planning to spend 21st till 23rd March in Stockholm and interested to see some natural snow/ice like places to do winter sports activities skiing,dog sledding,etc.
could some one pls clarify the following?
1) Does Are or Ostersund have natural ice/snow during march end?
2) i am planning to fly from stockholm to Ostersund airport and trying to find out operators in Are or Ostersund area.
I had a look at their official websites but still i am asking as I not clear about the topologies.

Advance thanks

I have just had an email from Are and they think they will have snow until May and that conditions are currently good.

Last year I went to Are in the middle of March and conditions were excellent.

If you want to contact Are about skiing try this link to Skistar - - or just google skistar, are.

Re getting to Ostersund - my experience with Swedish airlines is that they are appalling - they are either late or cancelled and then refuse to honour EU law regarding information, assistance or compensation. The only "reliable" airline is SAS and they fly to Ostersund. Check out the SAS website and book there.
