Take the train to FIS Alpine World Ski Championships Åre 2019


The night train to Åre is a comfortable and climate-friendly way to travel to the FIS Alpine World Ski Championships Åre 2019 in February. The train station in Åre is located right in the middle of the town, within walking distance to both the Arena and Medal Plaza. A pre-event survey estimated that visitor transport to Åre will count for the majority of the event’s total emissions. Help us reduce the event’s impact by choosing the train.

Skiers depend on a climate with cold winters to continue to enjoy the joys of the sport. The United Nation’s Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) has found that even limiting global warming to 1.5°C will already have serious consequences to the environment and our opportunities to continue to practice snow sports, elite and recreational levels alike. One way everyone can help combat climate change is to adjust their travel habits from driving a vehicle that burns fossil fuels to taking the train to the slopes.

With less than two months remaining until the opening ceremony of the Åre 2019 championships, it is high time to plan your trip there. Taking the train to Åre is a comfortable and climate-friendly way to travel. The SJ night train arrives at 8:10 in the center of Åre, leaving ample time for a good breakfast and a few runs on Åreskutan before the competitions start. The National Arena is within an easy walk from the train station. Arriving by car will not get you even close as near because the Park & Ride lots are located outside town. The Park & Ride buses will however be running on fossil-free vegetable oil-based fuel called HVO100, one of the ways that the organizers of Åre 2019 are trying to reduce the footprint of the event, of which 64% has been calculated to be caused by visitor travel to Åre.

- Our goal is to attract 120 000 visitors to Åre to watch and cheer in the Arena and we hope that as many as possible will help us reduce the event’s carbon footprint by travelling here using a sustainable means of travel such as the train, said Niklas Carlsson, CEO of Åre 2019.

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.
