Stöten Resort Guide
Insider tips from our team
Just over the border from Trysil, Stöten sits in a similarly snowsure mountain range. The highest peak is 370 metres which offers spectacular views of both Sweden and Norway. The slopes are varied and everyone is taken care of, from kids to adults. An extensive network of cross-country trails (45 km) adds to the attraction of the resort, and there are plenty of non-ski activities too.
The pistes in Stöten are based around three squares - Soltorget, Stötentorget, and Skidtorget (from left to right on the piste map). The main square is Stötentorget, where the hotel, pool, supermarket, most of the restaurants etc. are located. The ski school, kids’ area (Vargy’s Ski Land) and the easiest slopes are at Soltorget. Over by Skidtorget the pistes get more challenging, great for the more experienced.
If you’d like to take your first turns off-piste, Stöten is a great place to start with lots of easily accessible, gentle routes and a few more challenging ones. Unusually for Scandinavia, it is possible to ski in the trees throughout the resort.
Flexible and short lessons (1 hour 15 minutes) mean more time to ski as a family. Choose from 3, 4 or 5 days of group lessons for the kids, and 2 or 4 days for the adults. Adult lessons start on Tuesdays (the day after the kids), so on the first day, you can spend your time sorting out the children and not have to worry about sorting yourselves out too!
Kids in Stöten
Vargy’s Club - Vargy is Stöten’s wolf mascot. Fun and friendly, you’ll see him around the resort, running activities for kids aged 3 - 8. Whether it’s dancing to the afterski music, hunting for treasure or playing in the “wolf den”, your children can have fun and be looked after for a short while.
