On Ski from Åre Square - Östersund Square

Preface

It´s was me and my friend Kristoffer Kumar Lidvall dream to ski from his home in Undersåker/Åre to my home in the city of Östersund. The idea was: "We are friends and for us the natural thing to do, is to ski. So for us if we want from a place to un other: we ski."

Åre had bad skiing and a beutiful square. Östersund had good skiing and a ugly square.

 

The Info

  • Åre a boring and bad skiresort in Jämtland. Åre i s a famous skiresort but compare to all Jämtlands over 40 skiresort Åre is just one i the crowd. No good pistes because there are like steep flat football fields without natural hilly sloped. The offpist terrain is nice but without exiting and with really less of snow.
  • Östersund and Frösön is one of the oldest and most classic skidestination in Sweden. Here is where all start and the skislopes is natural hilly and fun to ski in. The offpist terrain is exiting and extreme on all ways.
  • Åre Square is quite nice and cusy.
  • Östersund Square is one of the worst in the whole world. It´s so totally crap. The name is "The Golden Square" and it´s cost 3 991 615 euro to build. 
  • Åre to Östersund on ski: Offer both good and some bad skiing. But real nice and fun ski between this destanations.

So my goal was to ski beetween this to places so the people really understand that Åres skiing is crap and Östersunds square and their politics are crap.

  • Of course I ski the alpine route between these places.
  • 5 Summits:
  • Renfjället 986m
  • Grovfjället 952m 
  • Ottfjället Östertoppen 1265m 
  • Bredsjöhögen 944m 
  • Drommen 1140m
  • The island on the lake "Storsjön":
  • Utöarna
  • Verkön highest point 338m
  • Andersön
  • Bynäset
  • Frösön
  • Frösön is the island I live on and some part of my fameliy have atlest live here since 1600´s. I skied Frösön 3 highest mountains:
  • Stengårdberget 428m
  • Öneberget 331m
  • Östberget/Frösöberget 466m

  • 163,35 KM
  • 4851 ascent meters and 5002 decent meters.
  • 39 hours from Åre Square to Östersunds Square. Day 1 12:57 hours and Day 2 15:17 hours.

In Ottsjö it was almost no snow at all. But Ottsjö is one of the point in Swedish mountain with less snow fall. Daniel Klintefelt enjoy the snow i the trench.

Photografer: Mattias Skantz

On the lake Ottsjön was it 3 cm of snow on ice. So I have problem to get grip with my poles and that not Daniel Klinteflet had so here he was faster than me.
