The main feature of Tandådalen ski resort is that it is 1/5 of the biggest ski region in Sweden with more than 160 km of slopes and more than 130 ski lifts in total together with Lindvallen/Högfjället, Kläppen, Stöten, and Näsfjället i Sälen individual resorts (that's what "ski region" means). In the case of linked slopes, the largest resort in Sweden is Åre in the same Jämtland County with more than 90 km of slopes and more than 30 ski lifts in total. Anyway, as an individual resort, Tandådalen is also quite large offering half of that or more than 45 km of slopes and more than 40 ski lifts in total.
