Welcome to Riksgränsen!

Warm weather around the clock, springtime with its slushy and soft snow is finally here. This morning we have fog in the valley, but as soon as you get up a bit on the mountain the sun shines.

Due to the warm weather, the piste machinists have had a hard time grooming the pistes, the machines are too heavy and leave irregularities in the soft snow. It’s mainly in Skimastern it’s messy, but expect to encounter bumps here and there. Smygarn is not groomed.

Banked Slalom competition has been completed and the competition area has been in Snobben. Note that the track is still standing and in poor visibility it can be difficult to see the banks. Ride with caution!

Due to sickness in the staf, The Sollift will be cllosed today. The Nordas lift is open at the backside.

Welcome to us!

Avalanche information:

On 18/5 we observed some smaller wet slabs triggered by skiers in Uffes vägg. During the day the sun will start weakening cornices and similar formations – ride with care!
Note that low risk is not the same as no risk – always be cautious in extreme terrain like cornices and steep sections, especially on the front side of the mountain.
