If you go to Sälen you have to go ski of course. There are 112 slopes and 79 ski lifts to choose from and over 400 artificial snow cannons gurantee that there's always snow.
Equipment: You figure it out....
A hint: you wear it on your feet and if you answer flippers then go book a trip to the south instead.
The first Sunday in March sees the start of Vasaloppet cross country ski race in Sälen from which you then ski your way to Mora, a distance of 90 kilometres through the forests and moors of Dalarna. Anyone can take part even though the famous skiers often win. People come from all over the world to take part so it's a great atmosphere surrounding this historical race, originally founded to commemorate a race king Vasa did before he became king, to escape his royal followers when he was a wanted man.
