Ruka

Ski resorts in Finland
Lifts (11/22)
Slopes (16/35)
Ruka Ski Area is renowned for well-groomed slopes and the longest ski season in Finland; over 200 days. The secret lies in the climate, as well as in the high-quality snowmaking machinery – not to forget the snow-how!
At Ruka you can find ski areas for kids and beginners as well as challenging black slopes and anything in between. The weekly slope programme and excellent restaurant facilities on the slopes keep you going all day.
You can find restaurants, shops & rental equipment, accommodation and other services in the Ruka pedestrian village.

Taught me to go skiing here so ....
Rukka really invests in the ones they do and the result is superb
+ long opening hours when I was there 10:00 to 19:00 non stop
+ Varying

- Lots of Russians who dress like KGB agents from a Bondroll
- Opens "early" in the season but does not open all slopes

they have a really nice ski resort ... what a shame when we were there with the clubs was that there was not so much snow that it was kind of just 4 slopes that were open ... but it's good practice at the beginning of autumn there ... quite a lot of finnish clubs there at the time but it's fun ... =)

-MASSES of people, families with children and Russians driving straight into the elevator queue.

Plus:
-Good range of slopes for all types of rides and for all levels
-Super ripped nightlife
-Functional service both at the hotels & food restaurants
-Man can choose to live in everything from luxury hotels / cabins with hot tubs to full board to simple, cheap "room hotels" where you cook their own
-The weather is usually pleasant.
-Many chairlifts
-As considered the best snowboard paradise in Finland
 
Minus:
-Very long lift queues in high seasons
- Very family-visitors who sometimes irritate the more "aggressive" riders
- Too bad pipes
-Offpist area could be better ..

If the weather is on the worse side, there are many inside activities to try; such as tennis, squash, indoor band .. in the "Ruka club". The area is solely adapted for the annual tourists and it is expanding all the time.
