It felt almost predetermined. Two ski crazy people from the south of Sweden who first found the love of each other and then to a small ski resort in the innermost of Härjedalen.
The ski interest was our common ground when we first met. After many visits to ski resorts around the world we gradually developed a longing for a friendly resort for us to develop. We dreamed about a place close to nature and close to skiing, but also about something beyond the usual holiday experience. A quiet and family stay.
Then suddenly an opportunity appeared. A small ski resort for sale - in Messlingen, far beyond the beaten track, in the middle of the mountains. A short visit in the valley was all that was needed. This was where we wanted to stay. This was where our dreams would be realized.
In December 2009 we could welcome the first skiers in the ski lift. Since then we have continued to develop the site with ski rentals, new slopes and cross-country skiing. Lifts have been moved, grooming machines purchased and heating homes built. Sometimes we have even a troubadour on after ski! But only a few steps from the ski lift the mountain birches are whizzing. The reindeer graze on the mountain above the lift and sometimes a bear passes the groomer garage. That´s the way things are here.
We have found the place on earth where we want to live and grow. And we run Kappruet based on the idea of the simple and natural, with human well-being in the center of a small-scale and family atmosphere. Year round, summer and winter, autumn and spring. A place where you can come and just be.
A place to come to and feel the serenity.
