At the base of Ottfjället lies the tiny village of Vålådalen, which is a classic resort –
in the olden days many of the nation's greatest athletes came here to exercise and prepare for championships,
and lately some have picked up this tradition again. The tourist station,
which is back in the STF franchise system after some time as a fully private establishment,
comprises a number of buildings and has a fully fledged restaurant, a sizeable shop and equipment rental,
as well as large conference halls and a dedicated sports hall.
The sauna is housed in a separate building including a relax room built like a Sámi hut,
and on its porch there are hot water barrels. During the winter ski tracks of various lengths are prepared,
and a ski lift brings people up onto the lower slopes of Ottfjället from just outside the station.
A year-round car road ends here, which makes Vålådalen a complement to Storulvån as an entrance to the Jämtland wilderness.
