Ski moguls and a massive downhill
Some of this route is above the treeline, which means that the trail may snow over and is less suitable in windy weather. You should choose back country skis.
Take the lift at Vålådalen Mountain Station, then follow the trail up to the Ottfjällsvägen road and turn right. The route continues with a kilometre-long, fairly steep climb up to “Puckelkammen” – the mogul ridge. In clear weather you can see the entire Vålån valley, with surrounding mountains.
Follow the trail and turn right at the junction. The snow bank to your right is a great place for a picnic. After this, you need to keep your cool as you glide downhill for over 3 km through mountain forests to Östra Vålådalen. Here, you can eat a delicious lunch or crispy waffles, before following the trail to Vålådalen’s lit trail. Turn right and follow the lit trail back to the mountain station.
To start in Östra Vålådalen, follow the trail towards Ottfjället. After 150 m, turn left and then continue for 300 m before turning right. Ski through gently undulating forest to Vålådalen’s lit trail. At the lit trail, turn right and follow it to the lift at the mountain station.
