There are trails for the children with plenty of resting places in the sun, and trails high in the mountains for the more experienced. Bortelid Skisenter is the largest alpine ski resort in Åseral, and is also one of the largest in the region. The slopes are for beginners and more experienced, and it is a popular choice for a skiing vacation.
