    biking in Sweden, Hagfors, last week of Februari

    We will be near Hagfors, the last week of Februari. We will bring our fatbikes (for the snow ;-))
    Any locals who can inform me about availability of trials and to be expected conditions ?

    No Swedes around?
    You could try logging in to this Swedish forum. Maybe Google Translate helps.

    My guesses:
    - riding conditions are highly weather dependant during the winter. A lot of powder snow, the day before, and nothing moves through it with ease. Higher temps and everything melts into a mush where nothing moves with ease.
    - The area seems to have lots of outdoor possibilities BUT in winter lots of the routes are groomed ski trails. Riding on them is bad manners, or worse.
    - Local help/guide is highly recommended.
