In close proximity to the Barnliften and Skalet Express lifts, and the dedicated children's ski area, is the Hovde Hotel - an authentic Scandinavian-style mountain hotel in the Skalets Torg area. The hotel has contemporary yet simple styling in its rooms and retains its mountain-guesthouse look on the outside.
This small hotel has just 22 guest rooms, all of which have large bathrooms. Breakfast is included each morning, with a modest selection of hot and cold options including bacon, eggs, bread, cheese and yoghurt, to ensure you'll be ready and energised to make the most of the mountains.
On the ground floor you'll find a high-class sports bar, Hovde Sportbar, that will keep you entertained well after the sun goes down. They sell a wide variety of beers, wines and cocktails, alongside a classic American-style menu of burgers and meats. And as the name suggests, you can engross yourself in a load of different sports matches on the TV, including Premier and Champions League games.
There's no reception on site, but it's just steps to the SkiStar office where you can check in and ask any questions you may have.
If you want to get out and about, the Hovde Hotel is right in the centre of Vemdalsskalet, with plenty of bars, restaurants and shops to take advantage of.
There's no rep based in Vemdalen, but support is available 24/7 by phone, email or Twitter.
