Altough overshaded by it's bigger and more 'hip' cousin in the north, Åre, this ski-resort offers almost everything you need for a skiing vacation. The is also many activites that are family oriented.
Sälen has no airport on it's own, talks having been going on for years on extending the local airstrip for commercial traffic. Most tourists arrive at Mora-Siljan Airport, a small regional airport with connections only from Stockholm and Ängelholm (in Scania).
The SkiPassBus is free for all holders of the SkiPass and will easily take you from the hotel to the slope and back. Apart from that public bus #200 goes from the actual village of Sälen and along the main road up to the ski resorts.
