British skiers will be able to fly directly to the twin resorts of Trysil and Sälen for the first time from December 28th – and start their holiday in style with a dog sled transfer. Guests can fly in with SAS from Heathrow to the new Scandinavian Mountains Airport and book a private transfer, a shared shuttle bus, or be whisked to their accommodation in Sälen by a team of 10 Alaskan huskies.
With flights taking just two hours and transfer times to Sälen, Sweden from 10 minutes – unless you decide to take the scenic route through a winter wonderland on a dog sled – and Trysil, Norway from 40 minutes, it’s no wonder more Brits than ever have booked a ski holiday with SkiStar this winter.
It’s the ideal start to a Scandinavian ski holiday. SkiStar, which owns and manages the region’s biggest resorts, makes skiing with the family simple. Guests can book ski lessons at SkiStar’s very own Valle’s Ski School, kit hire, accommodation and childcare with SkiStar directly though SkiStar.com.
Mathias Lindström, Sales and Marketing Director at SkiStar, says: “With the opening of Scandinavian Mountains Airport, we are looking forward to welcoming more guests than ever from the UK this winter. We’re particularly excited to offer the unique experience of a dog sled transfer to Sälen so guests can immerse themselves in the magical winter landscape as soon as they’ve stepped off the plane. For those who can’t wait to get on the slopes, SkiStar transfers from the airport will get them to Sälen and Trysil in just 10 and 40 minutes respectively.”
