It is known for its successful skiers, particularly in the "technical" disciplines: Slalom and Giant Slalom: Ingemar Stenmark, Anja Pärson, Bengt Fjällberg, Stig Strand and Jens Byggmark. 18 km further north in the Parish of Tärnaby is the village Hemavan, a ski resort, with an airport and start point of the Kungsleden trail.

In winter Tärnaby is transformed into one of Sweden's best[citation needed] ski resorts. By summer the Laponian lakes and mountains provide opportunities for activities such as fishing, canoeing, hiking and mountain biking.
