 Take public transport or walk to the Arena

Please bear in mind that there are limited parking spaces in Åre, especially near the Arena. It is only a 15-minute walk from the train station in Åre to the Race Arena. If need be, there are also busses shuttling from the train station (Bahnhof) to the Arena. You will find their schedule by clicking here.

Your ski pass is also a ticket (but not vice versa)

You’re planning to do some skiing in Åre? Great – make a stop at the Arena to watch some races. Your ski pass is also your entry ticket (general admission only). If you are skiing down slope number 34 (towards VM8:an), turn to the right after the tunnel to access the Arena. Or just use any entrance to enter with your ski pass. The general admission area is on the skier’s left.

Please note however that your entry ticket cannot be used as a ski pass. 

Standing tribune only

Please note that there is no seating in the Arena. Enter the Arena and choose your spot in the sector you bought your ticket for, standing only. First come, first served. 

Re-entry to the Arena is allowed

You need to leave the Arena after entering? No problem. Just keep your ticket and show it to our staff when you wish to re-enter.

Where to find some food

In the Public Food Court, you will find snacks such as Bratwurst, hamburgers, soups or pasta, sweets and drinks. The Public Food Court is located in the giant white tent on the skier’s left. By the way: Click here to access a map of the Arena. Of course, there are many restaurants and shops in the village of Åre as well. At the tribune there is also a smaller kiosk where you may buy smaller dishes and drinks. 

Picnic allowed – no glass in the Race Arena

You are welcome to bring your own picnic to the Arena. Please note that glass bottles are forbidden. 

Don´t drink alcohol in public spaces

In Sweden, it is prohibited to drink alcohol in public spaces. Which means that it is not permitted to bring your own alcoholic beverages to the Arena. We will serve some alcoholic beverages in the Public Food Court. Please note that that those need to be enjoyed in the Public Food Court and may not be brought to the tribune.

No cash, no Swish – only cards

Please note that you can only pay by card in the Race Arena including Public Food Court. We won´t accept cash or Swish.

Where life can be lived - reflections of a volonteer19.2.2019 09:34:46 CETPressmeddelande

Yet another Alpine World Championship in Åre has come to an end. The third through the years. Skiers, visitors and volunteers have lived and breathed the World Championships for weeks. The organization has done the same for years. Beyond all the races that have been raced, the medals that have been awarded, something else has taken place. Perhaps the thoughts have been thought before, maybe they have been awaken when being here. Thoughts of the real meaning of life, or rather, thoughts of what kind of life we want to live. Thoughts of where our children should grow up, of where our everyday lives should take place. Where life should be lived.
