Vattenfall, one of Åre 2019's national partners, has a vision of being fossil-free within a generation. To this effect, Vattenfall is contributing to the climate-smart World Championships in Åre and invites everyone to take a nice ride on an electric snowmobile.
Four electric snowmobiles with sledges await you
Vattenfall wishes for as many people as possible to enjoy this pleasant snowmobile experience. Their electronic snowmobiles have sledges that seat eight people each. As a bonus, blankets are offered to anyone who is freezing or just wants a warmer ride during the five minutes that it takes to cross the lake from Åre town to the Race Arena.
Make sure to take this chance to have your own fossil-free experience on the way to the races, during breaks at the races on your way back home again!
