Two out of three Swedes want to move during the sports holiday

By on February 14, 2017

Sporting holidays are awaited – two out of three Swedes, 66 percent, want to be physically active when traveling in winter. It shows a Sifo survey commissioned by the ski tour operator, SkiStar, which now kicks off sports holiday activities in Sälen, Åre, Vemdalen, Hemsedal, Trysil and St. Johann.

It is gratifying that so many want to move during the school holidays. Skiing is something that the whole family can do together, so a mountain holiday is a perfect sports holiday activity with lots of both physical activity and recovery, says Linda Morell, PR manager at SkiStar.

The survey shows that two out of three Swedes, 66 percent, think it is important to be physically active if they are to book a winter trip. 29 percent say that it is very important. The urge to move on the holiday goes again in all age groups.

It looks like we can provide very good conditions for an active mountain holiday during the sports holiday, which feels great. The week begins with the sun on nearly all of our resorts, and the forecasts show that more snow is in the works, says Linda Morell.

Most of SkiStar’s resorts have all the slopes and lifts open *. In Sälen, Trysil and Austrian St. Johann measure snow cover close to 80 centimeters, and Åre, Vemdalen and Hemsedal is not far behind. In addition to a diverse range of ski runs, children’s areas and parks so offer SkiStar’s ski resorts in Sweden and Norway also several different ski experience, private lessons with instructors and group ski school. Hammarbybacken in Stockholm are open for skiing kl.10-22 on weekdays and kl.9-18 Saturday-Sunday.
