ONE MONTH UNTIL SEASON OPENING FOR LOFSDALEN BIKE PARK

In summer Hovärken change shape, from ski slopes to bicycle tracks. Where skiers are shining in the slopes during the wintertime, a bicycle park will show up in the spring. Just Lofsdalen's Bike Park is perhaps Sweden's most family-friendly since the trails are suitable for beginners and average riders. With durable and shock absorbed bikes, you roll on well maintained trails.

You don't have to bike up to the mountain to get the glorious downhill, a modern seat lift will help ypu up. The bike hangs on the side of the lift chair. Staff are always there to help you on and off the elevator.

– I was a beginner when I tested Lofsdalens Bike Park for the first time. We didn't have any own bikes so we rented it when we arrived. I was impressed by how good the trails were. A extra plus is that there are trails that suit all ages, both beginners and professionals, says Martin Agerstig, member of the Rackartygarna and diligent Lofsdalen visitors.

The trails are graded in different degrees of difficulty, just like the slopes in the winter. The longest trail (3.6 km) is a blue trail, a relatively easy one. In addition to this, there are four red, one green, one more blue and one black. The trails are designed by renowned Gravity Lodgic from Whistler, which built some of the world's most visited bike parks, including Whistler Mountain Bike Park.

– New for this year is a 65 meter long pump track that is built outside Aktivitetshuset. You can use kickbikes, skateboards, inlines and bikes there. It will be a good addition to other bicycle options, says Jonny Larsson, location manager at Lofsdalen Fjällanläggning
