Welcome to Mössebergsbacken! The slopes of Mösseberg with views over Falköping are home to Skaraborg’s largest ski resort – Mössebergsbacken. The ski slopes have four ski runs and four lifts. There is also a nursery slope for beginners.

The mountain plateau has some great cross-country trails. Once it’s cold enough, the artificial snow track of up to 2,5 kilometres is prepared. And once winter has really taken hold and natural snow has fallen, more trails of varying lengths and levels of difficulty are opened. Why not come and spend some fun winter days in the glorious setting of Mösseberg!
