Ski resort Ylläs-Ski
THE LARGEST SKI RESORT IN FINLAND
Measured by the number and length of its slopes as well as the height differences and diversity of its runs, Ylläs is the largest ski resort in Finland. It is located right above Äkäslompolo village. From the slopes, splendid views open out across the other rugged fells in the Pallas-Ylläs National Park. Ylläs-Ski offers all the services that a downhill skier needs. You can find them in the Y1 Service Center at the bottom terminal of the main lift as well as in the slope restaurants Cafe Express and Jokerikuppila.
The slopes offer something for everyone, regardless of age and level of expertise. Ylläs-Ski has four magnificent areas for downhill skiers: Varkaankuru, Perherinteet family slopes, Eturinteet and Aurinkokuru, which alone has 11 runs. In Aurinkokuru, you will go up in the stupendous Aurinko Express chair lift with capacity for four skiers.

Ylläs has extensive slopes and pleasant cross-country tracks.

If you change sides, make sure that you can make it back before the lifts close for the night. Please also note that the weather conditions may make it necessary to close the slopes and lifts in the middle of the day.
Ylläs has 330 km of tracks, the most extensive network in Finland. It offers excellent conditions for skiers of all skill levels from early winter till late spring. Track network maps can be purchased from most shops, cafés and accommodation providers in Ylläs. The profits from map sales go towards maintaining the track network in Ylläs.
