Cross-country trails up on the mountain in Sälen

Stöten has two cross-country trails up in the tundra with fantastic views over the landscape. The trails are ready to use as soon as there’s enough snow for us to prep, but you usually get the best cross-country experience during late February and in the early sping. Don’t forget to look at the weather report and dress accordingly before you head out!
