Winter activities in Skövde

Skövde is situated at the foot of Billingen Mountain. In the winter, the mountain becomes a true winter paradise. Try ice skating, go cross-country skiing through the forest, or head down the slalom slope – Billingen offers many different winter activities, all in one place.

Cross-country skiing

Glide through the forest along the cross-country ski tracks on Billingen. There are six artificial snow sections totalling 11 kilometres of illuminated ski trails. You can follow individual trails or combine them to create the ideal length for you and your companions. The trails also have different characters, from the technically demanding ‘Elitsticket’ to the less challenging ‘Sjövägen’ or the enjoyable ‘Campingslingan’ with its gentle turns. When there is enough snow, four longer trails totalling 20 kilometres are also marked out.

Ice skating

Bring a flask of hot chocolate and get your skates on – it’s time for a wonderful day on the ice. Choose between skating at the indoor rink in Billingehov or getting close to nature on the outdoor rink up at Billingen recreation area. This is a fun activity for the whole family.

Slalom and snowboarding

The edge of the mountain spreads out into a blanket of white. Situated on the side of the mountain, the slalom slope offers fantastic skiing and breath-taking views. The slope is 400 metres long and has a drop of 100 metres. There is a downward slope, two lifts (a platter lift and a surface life) and a fun park with rails and jumps of varying levels of difficulty.

Equipment hire:

Not got your own equipment? No problem. At Billingen, Träningskonsulten hires out both alpine and cross-country skis. 30K, located on the road up to the mountain, also hires out cross-country skis. Fritidsbanken lends outs pre-owned sport and leisure equipment such as ice skates. A bit like a library.
