    Sweden: Ski resorts affected by high electricity prices

    September 28, 2022 - M-Brain Nordic News


      In Sweden, ski resort operators have voiced concern about high electricity prices in the upcoming 2022/2023 season. Mikael Elford, marketing director at Branäsgruppen, says that the company expects cost increases of about SEK 8mn (EUR 730,994.61 USD 708,561.97) for electricity and fuels in the upcoming season. The company will not open the Vallåsen resort this season, and plans to sell it when a buyer is found. Neither Branäsgruppen nor competitor Skistar will increase prices for ski passes. Louise Söderlund, CEO at ski resort Isaberg, expects that electricity prices may double compare to 2021/2022. She says that some smaller resorts will not be open in the upcoming season, as they will not be profitable. Titti Rodling, CEO at ski resort industry association Svenska Skidanläggningars Organisation (SLAO), says that smaller resorts in southern Sweden are generally more vulnerable as they typically have electricity agreements with variable prices, and since price are higher in the south.
