National Park Sonfjallet is Open Year Around

In winter you may be the only person there. The days are short, but you can ski Grey's western slope and camp in the snow. Marked winter trails begin at Robbery Dals road, Dals embankment and Nysatern. Snow melts off the mountain in April, making it very wet and difficult to get around and you may encounter bears searching for berries, ants and carrion.

Summer is the most popular time to visit when the hiking trails are plentiful and camping is easier. In September, the bears combed mountain slopes for berries, Nyvallens farm takes its animals to another village and the road closes when the snow comes. - AsNotedIn
