Hello snow brothers;) My name is Egor. I live in Moscow. This season 2020 our company (approx. 5 people), would like to visit Sweden for backcountry riding with our own sleds. It would be really nice to meet someone here in the forum and run together over there. We also have a pair of really insane places here, so be glad to meet somebody too for this season.

Hi. Thanks for writing. To be honest I have only idea and about zero understanding where exactly we need to go for a good ride in Sweden. That’s why I made this topic obviously. Would be grateful a lot if you put me into any details concerning that place. Did you ever been there? What about back country riding, Is it allowed ? Do you plan to use your own sled or rent there? Will you go with a company ? What about accommodation, sled service, shops...?

By the way - one and a half week I returned from gold mining village of Siberia which was worked in Soviet it have a name “Priiskovy”. Insane 1.5 powder in the middle of November. One negative thing about that - 4000 km, 13 hours painful plane/car trip to get there and + 4 hours time zone to Moscow. 5 days takes sled delivery from Moscow. But the wether and nature are insane. There was marketing event of brand Polaris. And seems two famous riders from US came there Cris Curtis and someone Caleb.

Hi. Cool pictures!

Yes, I've been to Big River Camp twice. Another good company and place would be Experience Arjeplog, I've also been there twice.
Both are good for back country riding. I (with a friend) always go with a guide, we need it, both for the knowledge of the area as well as helping us getting unstuck and just teaching how to ride better. Both companies provide the guide, accomodation, sled hiring (I don't have my own sled), etc, etc.
In Sweden backcountry riding is allowed in most places, but not on some specific areas, like natur reserves.
From the pictures I gather you could ride without a guide (or maybe just for the knowledge of the area). In that case you could download (snowmobiling) maps for where you're allowed to go and where not and for the snowmobile trails. You can also buy paper maps and use it to plan where you want to go.
More information on sledding in Sweden you can find here.
Russian language is also available, but in Swedish there is more information, so I like to just use Google Translate.
