Experience natural snow in Pallas Ski resort
As the old wisdom has it, "Pallas takes your heart but you can always come back". Pallas is the most genuine and traditional fell for downhill skiing and a paradise for travellers who truly want to enjoy their holiday. Our aim is to maintain the natural snow on our slopes rather than producing artificial snow. It feels different to ski on natural snow because it doesn't freeze or chrystallise on the skis like artificial snow. The soil of the slopes is not mechanically treated which makes skiing as natural as possible with all the mounds and shapes in the slope. You can't find an easier and more diversified place for off-piste skiing in Finland! You will only understand the magical power of the national landscape on the spot. Pallas Ski resort features relaxed get-togehers and laid-back outdoor sports in fresh fell air.
