Branäsgruppen is a ski resort operator. n the early 1960s, ideas were raised on a ski slope in Branäs.
The then Finnskoga-Dalby municipality received a promise from Prime Minister Tage Erlander of a million SEK in support. This provided that any person in charge would take care of the project.
At that time, however, no one was willing to be responsible for the construction of a ski slope in Branäs. It was only in the mid-1980s that the project got a real boost.
LO-Värmland took over the Branä project, and together with HSB Värmland and the county council in Värmland managed to finance. In July 1987, the message was given that the Branä project would receive state aid.
In 1988 the spade was put into the ground and the inauguration of the plant was made by King Carl XVI Gustaf in December of the same year. Over 500 million kronor were invested in the first few years, after which it became more difficult as costs went off and bankruptcy was close.
In 1992 an agreement was made with creditors and the debts were written down by 75%. HSB Sweden took over the plant and operated it until 1999.
