Cross-country skiing at Lassalyckan
Lassalyckan has ski trails to suit every type of skier – from professionals to families with children. There are also plenty of options for refreshments and barbecuing. Our five picnic areas can be used to make a fire and grill a few sausages or simply relax and enjoy a packed lunch from home.
Lassalyckan's artificial snow cannon enable us to spread artificial snow directly on the trails. In favourable weather conditions, the entire trail can be completely covered in 3–4 days. The artificial snow trail stretches up to 11.5 km, with 8.3 km equipped with electric lighting. There are also three trails for natural snow measuring 5, 10 and 15 km. These are usable in good winter conditions. Skiing on all the above trails requires a ski pass for adults over 16 years of age.
Lighted trail 3.6 km: Slightly hilly, suitable for most people.
Yellow trail 5 km: A slightly hilly trail well suited to beginners and training sessions.
Green trail 10 km: Slightly hillier than the yellow trail. This is the ideal trail for more experienced skiers.
Black and white trail 15 km: This elite level trail places very high demands on skiers, in terms of both physical condition and technique.
When there is plenty of natural snow, you can also ski on the nearby golf course. As soon as this is possible, trails are staked out on the green and you are free to ski there. These trails are even groomed and the skiing season most often begins on the golf course. No ski pass is necessary. The golf course also has some great slopes for sledding! When there is plenty of natural snow, a sledding slope is also groomed in the 'warm-up area'.
Ulricehamns IF's clubhouse has changing rooms, a sauna, toilets, warming hut and waxing facilities open to visitors.
