A Winter Wonderland

At least a dozen well-maintained downhill slopes of varying degrees of difficulty are to be found at Dundret ski resort. Six of these slopes are illuminated for use throughout the long, dark winter. On the mountain, there's also a small-scale ski jump; a health and fitness center with a limited array of spa facilities and a very attractive log-sided room that contains a heated indoor pool; facilities for snowboarding; and Snowland, a child-care and entertainment facility designed to interest and amuse young children, presumably while their parents take time out for themselves. (A regular sight here are snow bears, inspired by the characters at Disney, who ride with young children in motorized sleighs.) Kiosks and sports shops rent and sell ski equipment and accessories. The staff at the resort is adept at arranging snow-scooter safaris, ice fishing, dog-team trips, junkets on sleighs pulled by reindeer, overnight stays in Lapp tents, and outdoor barbecues, regardless of the season. They also can set up visits to remote mountain streams where you can catch graylings; the schools of graylings found in this part of Sweden are the most concentrated of this type of fish in all of Europe.
