Why Ski in Finland

The lowdown on skiing in Finland

In honour of our friends at skiFinland unveiling their swanky new name, this week we’re going to discuss skiing in Finland, and why we think it’s the husky’s knees.

World Class Ski Resorts in Finland

Finland is a world-class skiing destination, and you don’t just have to take our word for it; each year Levi ski resort in north Finland hosts the opening round of the FIS Slalom world cup, while a little further south, Ruka ski resort hosts the opening of the Cross-Country skiing, Ski Jumping and Nordic Combined World Cup events, as well as the FIS Freestyle Cup in early December.

Snow Sure Slopes and Fantastic Facilities

There can be no doubt then, that the ski resorts in Finland take all their snowsports to the highest level, and while you might not be terribly interested in world-cup black runs, what you can be interested in is the incredibly reliable snow record and world-class facilities that attract international snowsports competitors to Finland’s ski resorts in the first place. It’s not just the high-speed chair lifts and latest technology snow machines either, the resort villages are often purpose built, creating bubbles of high-standard hotels and apartments surrounded by a lovely selection of restaurants and bars that are all within a short distance of the slopes.

Not Just for Christmas

Like puppies, cranberry sauce and snow-capped pine trees, Finland is not just for Christmas. We love skiing in Finland in February as a way to beat the crowds associated with the school holidays while also still having a fantastic chance of spotting the Northern Lights on your skiing holiday. However, it is spring in Finland that is one of our absolute favourite times of the year thanks to the long days and bright weather combined with reliable snow conditions, which makes Easter some of the best skiing of the year.

Wonderful Finnish Ski Schools

The standard of tuition is high too. In the beautiful but remote reaches of northern Finland the locals have embraced tourism, and combined with a culture of passion toward all things winter, this creates a fantastic ethos for the local ski schools. Whether you are a beginner learning to slide for the first time or a more experienced skier, snowboarder or cross-country skier looking to improve or in search of quality guiding you will find keen, English speaking instructors looking forward to spending time with you on the snow.

Independent Reviews

We can shout about how great Finland is until the reindeer come home, but thanks to our independent reviews collected by AITO we don’t have to – our customers have done it for us. With 98% 5 star/tick reviews (https://www.ski-finland.co.uk/#modal-aito) we are confident that you will love Finland just as much as we do.
