Spring is the time of year when the skiing in Scandinavia really comes into it’s own. Riksgränsen is Sweden’s northernmost ski resort. The ski season does not really get started until February, when there are enough daylight hours.
By midsummer’s day, the end of the season, the sun will not have set for over a month. While the resort offers plenty of on piste challenges, the main attraction is heli-skiing. With an unpopulated drop zone the size of Holland it is usually possible to find un-tracked snow at the end of May.
