A haven for skiers of all ages and abilities, Trillevallen is the calm constant in a rapidly changing world. With 21 slopes and eight lifts, this long-standing ski resort sits nicely tucked away from the hustle and bustle of everyday life, offering a warm embrace to anyone searching for that special winter getaway.

Back in the glory days of famous Swedish downhill skier Ingemar Stenmark, the whole nation was in awe of his outstanding performance on the slopes. As a result, the sport’s popularity boomed across Sweden, and Trillevallen followed suit by beginning to grow its already-established resort into the welcoming hospitality hub it is today.

Perhaps best described as a calm oasis with a retro feel, Trillevallen has stayed true to its core over the years, despite being modernised throughout. “We’ve always treasured the peaceful atmosphere you find here,” explains CEO Cecilia Lind. “Our roots run through everything we do, and it’s important that we hold on to that, not only for ourselves but for visitors too.”

With both Trondheim and Östersund airports located nearby, Trillevallen is easily accessible, and for the easiest possible commute, hotels offer guests transfer to and from the local train station.

Ski, sleep and repeat

First opened in 1938, Trillevallen’s rooms have recently been carefully renovated to better suit the 21st century. Indeed, these rooms, which had looked the same since 1994, have now had a well-needed touch-up.

“Although we’ve given the rooms a modern upgrade, they still have obvious features from the 1950s and 1960s, such as timely coloured bathroom tiles,” tells Lind. “When guests walk through the halls of the hotel, we want them to feel the history in every step.”

With a total of 270 beds available for guests to book in the hotel, options for accommodation also hold a series of modern flats, two cosy cabins and a large homestead which sleeps up to 32 people – perfect for big family events, or larger groups getting together away from home. The homestead is warm and cosy with comfortable sofas, a restaurant-style kitchen and lots of board games to enjoy after outdoor adventures.

A day on the slopes

Compared to other larger ski destinations, Trillevallen and the Välliste mountain the resort is located by have the benefit of shorter and wider slopes. The slopes are also interconnected which adds a layer of safety for skiers – especially for families as parents can let their kids off on their own without worrying about them getting lost. There is also a ski school and ski rental, plus a clever mini slope for the little ones to learn the basics. Here, kids will travel up the slope via what can best be described as a conveyor belt, which means fewer tumbling kids and more happy parents.

And when hunger eventually strikes, Ripan restaurant awaits mid-slope, with stunning views across the surrounding landscape. Here, guests can tuck into pizzas, daily lunch specials and a range of hot beverages. There’s a roaring fire to warm up cold toes, plus a lounge area for those who need a longer break.

Once evening comes, there’s more great food on offer at the hotel’s own restaurant. “The menu is composed of the best regional produce and served alongside an extensive wine list. There’s even a playroom for children to give the grownups a little bit more time to enjoy the experience in peace,” says Lind.

Trillevallen is also home to miles of scenic tracks for cross-country skiing, with the starting point near the slopes. You can even ski to neighbouring villages if a longer tour is what you fancy.

Get a package deal

For easy booking, Trillevallen’s offering includes a series of packages, all featuring a bundle of ski passes, accommodation and meals. There’s the Christmas package from 22-26 December, as well as a five-day New Year’s package for those keen to ring in the new year in the mountains.

Also worth mentioning is next summer’s mountain marathon. This event, which has become a modern classic that attracts visitors from all over, includes a series of races around the area’s mountains, and Trillevallen will serve up a package deal to match.

Speaking of summer, there’s a desire for Trillevallen to expand its outside-of-winter offering to make it more of a 360° resort. “We’re working out a plan with villages nearby to better our offering of activities like hiking, kayaking and fishing. There’s so much to see and do around here and we really want people to experience it to the max,” concludes Lind.
