Take me there, I am ready to go this Xmas !!!!

Has anyone been to this place?. What kind of money am I looking at handing over in order to ski there for 2 weeks in 2023??

XC SKIING ON A BUDGET
Keep to the off season weeks like the weeks between New Year´s and the Swedish Sports Holidays (choose weeks number 2-5) and the weeks after week number 10 til the easter week or after easter to get a better price renting a cabin or an apartment in the ski resorts. Make your own meals, choose public transport and bring a sack lunch to your skiing adventure of the day. There are often so called “Värmestuga” (heated cabin) in the ski resorts where you are welcome to eat your own lunch and sometimes these facilities even include microwave owens so you can heat your lunch. There is also a big difference in prices between the ski resorts so comparing prices will be worthwhile if you are on a shoestring.

Very nice area, spent time there every winter when still living in Swede, but that’s quite a while ago now so couldn’t tell you price wise, but accommodation shouldn’t be anything like Oz depending on how much/little luxury you want.

Never thought of Sweden as a budget location, myself. But perhaps it depends on your budget. The skiing looks great. (The women have a certain appeal , as well). Note the outstanding single leg balance employed in both classic and skating techniques in the video.
But for Northern hemisphere skiing on a budget, I suggest it's still hard to beat Japan. Snow Harp at Hakuba is a great area which hosted Olympic events. There is a trail at the base of Iwatake and, of course, xc in many other parts of Japan. Some super bc too (as in the video posted by Ramenman/skifree) but that's another dimension again.

Local knowledge rules. Always. But how much is a return flight to Sweden? When we're allowed to go?
I am saving money just being at home under lockdown and not doing much other than cycling to keep fit. I will look into the prices of air fares just for the sake of it. Keep in mind one could go to Japan , ski there for 2 weeks or so and then go to Sweden and ski there and have nearly 4 weeks of skiing during the SE Oz bushfire season.
When ? That is a good question. I would guess around Xmas 2022.

Bruksvallarna is quite close to the Norwegian Border. It could be quicker to fly to Norway i.e Trondheim from Stockholm and then take a bus to reach the ski location.

So add the extra cost of travelling within Scandinavia on top of the long haul airfare.
Being a UK / Oz dual citizen it is not that far from London. I am looking at doing a hop skip and a jump from London.
Japan would have much better food without a doubt. The food can be a deal breaker for this would be traveller!

Qatar advertising Stockholm return economy for under $1000. That seems amazing. Comparable with Japan. But it all depends on dates, of course.
The global airline Industry is stuffed at present so they will do anything to get passengers. Wait for late 2022 if and when the plague is less of an issue. We might be allowed to ski in NSW by 2022 !!!

Check out Dolimiti Nordicski. Cheaper and better food.
