But what is it about Åre that makes it stand out from more traditional tourist hotspots, like the French and Italian alps. Well, the main difference seems to be the Swedish attitude to skiing. Most Swedes have been on skis since they were children, so the urge to show off has long disappeared. This has created a natural, family-friendly atmosphere where everyone is welcome: young, old, amateur or expert. But the main difference is Åre itself. Åre is a trendy mountain village with a towering heart in the shape of the Åreskutan mountain, which stands a staggering one-kilometre above the village below. As well as boasting northern Europe’s most extreme vertical drop, Åreskutan offers a wide range of superb skiing opportunities – from daredevil descents and rolling, kilometre-long pistes to scenic ski trails liberally dotted with mountainside restaurants.
