There are plenty of runs for the less advanced skier, but
Riksgransen really prides itself on the quality of its off-piste
skiing in often knee-deep powder. The heli-skiing is extensive,
with numerous peaks within easy reach of the resort. All the guides
are expertly trained, and the pilots know the surrounding area
intimately. As many as five peaks can be attempted in one day.
As midsummer approaches, the sun barely drops below the horizon,
and on some nights in late May and even early June the lift system
is open until one o'clock in the morning. The surrounding
wilderness also allows for alternative activities such as
cross-country skiing and snow-shoeing. In addition, the world
famous Ice Hotel is just over two hour's drive away.
