Cross country skiing

There are many opportunities for skiing in the municipality of Skellefteå. Within the central city, more than 40 km of ski trails are managed by Skellefteå Municipality, and if you add the trails in the service villages that are managed by associations, the figure is more than 120 km of ski trails.

Ski trails in Skellefteå

The trails in the city centre are run by the municipality, with the exception of Anderstorp's exercise trail run by IFK Anderstorp and Sunnanå's light trail run by Sunnanå SK. The ski tracks outside the town centre are run by associations.

At Skellefteå Skidstadion it is possible to change and shower in Skellefteå Skidklubb's clubhouse / service building 3 on the site.
Opening hours Monday - Sunday 06.00 - 22.00.

If you need to roll your skis, there is a roll shed east of the Skellefteå Ski Club clubhouse. Room number 2 is open to the public.

Good to know!

During the winter season, walking, running, ride a bike or walking a dog on prepared ski trails is not allowed according to the local regulations. Walking on the ski tracks can also cause unnecessary accidents and sand and gravel can follow the tracks, causing skis to break.

Try the Winter Walk instead.

Thank you for your consideration!

Here you can see the status of the ski trails, ice rinks and sledding hills in central Skellefteå. This will help you to stay up to date and be the first on the newly prepared trails, on the freshly groomed ice rinks or in the sledding hill.

How to use the web map:

  • Open the map. External link.
  • In the "Filter" menu you can choose the area to display, "Vitberget" or "East of town".
  • Once you have selected the area, you can then choose which track you want to see, make your choice in the menu and press the "View" button.
  • You can also choose to see all tracks with track status in a list by clicking on the "See tracks in table" button.

Another form of skiing is touring. Instead of following prepared ski tracks, you choose your own way out into nature. Visit a barbecue area, a place with some extra natural beauty or find a south-facing slope where you can sit down and just enjoy the sun. And you don't have to worry about not finding your way back - you just follow your own tracks back home.
