Beginners are well catered for with some gently rolling slopes at Duved and gentle runs at Bjornen. The tuition is excellent and all the instructors speak English. Intermediates have a great range of runs and areas to chose from, with the Are ski area offering the most challenging terrain. Advanced skiers will find some steep challenging runs, including the famous World Cup run, plus some great off-piste to be explored with a guide. There is a dedicated snowboard park, which is floodlit in the evenings, plus benches at the top of many of the lifts to accommodate snowboarders. Cross-country skiers are spoilt with 70 kilmotres of piste.
The night-life for ski holidays in Are is fairly low key and centres around the hotel bars and restaurants. At weekends it does get a bit livelier and there are a range of popular bars and clubs, many with live bands.
