Skiing premier in Åre
On Friday 20 November the Hamre lift & Hamrebacken piste in Duved will open
In addition to Hamreliften with the Hamrebacken piste that open for the season also Torpliften with Torpbacken will be open from Friday until Sunday. In Hamrebacken we are adding a minor line with rails and boxes and SkiStar will be treating all children to hot dogs and lemonade during the weekend.
-The seasonal opening this weekend has been made possible through the substantial investments we have made in snow-making systems. We have invested heavily in automated systems which enable snow production at borderline temperatures, says Anders Aspholm, Operations Manager, SkiStar Åre.
The snow blanketing in the rest of the ski area has progressed well during the chilly spells with top priority on the Störtloppet and Gästrappet pistes considering the upcoming Audi FIS Ski World Cup races during the Lucia weekend, on 12 – 13 December.
