Anyone got actual experience? I particularly love to ski inside the arctic circle.

Riksgränsen and Narvik are probably the best lift served skiing above the arctic circle. Both should be open till around mid june. Never been to these places, only stryn for summer skiing in scandinavia, and it's very very good. Usually has tons of snow but it can melt quite fast so late may or early june should be perfect
Summer skiing is going to be where there are glaciers, or abundant stockpiled snow from the winter. Above the Arctic Circle the weather tends to be drier, often enough to offset the lower temperatures and thus result in a smaller/less durable snowpack. The ski areas referenced are also near Norway's highest mountains.
But Riksgransen is known to run the lifts for midnight sun skiing some days in late May/early June. Which I think would be the point of skiing above the Arctic Circle.
