Värmland County is a county or län in west central Sweden. It borders the Swedish counties of Dalarna, Örebro and Västra Götaland, as well as the Norwegian counties of Østfold, Akershus and Hedmark to the west.
Branäs is about five hours drive from Gothenburg and is a small town with a reasonably sized ski resort. More focused on families than apres ski, there is still a fairly lively bar which runs late offering food and drinks. There is one primary hill with a long gondola up, and then a series of chair lifts half way down to take you back. A decent selection of Red and Blue runs, it is an ideal location for a weekend away from Gothenburg.
