Significant events during the period and after the end of the period

  • SkiStar has decided to make further investments ahead of the coming financial year. SEK 67 million is being invested in new summer activities for the company’s destinations. This is in addition to the previously communicated investments for the next financial year of SEK 555 million, which include extensive investments in replacements and modernisations with an extra focus on snow capacity, as well as new lifts in order to wind-proof SkiStar Åre.

  • For the first time, SkiStar had over six million skier days at its destinations during the winter season. The number of skier days totalled 6,031,000, which represents a ten-percent increase compared with the previous record season in 2018/19.


Comments from the CEO Stefan Sjöstrand:

As we review the winter season, we can say that SkiStar has produced its best nine-month result ever, with profit before tax of SEK 1,134 million, an improvement of SEK 883 million year-on-year. We have had an incredibly strong growth in all mountain products such as SkiPass, up 54 percent, ski rental, up 78 percent, together with record sales in our sporting goods operations, up 38 percent. This shows that the interest in our core business – alpine skiing in the Scandinavian mountains – remains extremely strong.

Regarding SkiStar Sports & Adventures, which offers an active holiday for the whole family in summer, we are seeing a positive trend once again this year with bookings up nine percent, measured in the number of booked overnight stays via SkiStar, compared to the same period last year.
