Ruka Ski Resort

Ruka is full of winter fun and lappish experiences. Enjoy well maintained slopes, efficient ski lifts and stunning views. The ski season lasts more than 200 days. The multifaceted ski area is suited for children, adults, beginners and experts. Ruka was chosen the best ski resort in Finland in 2014.

Ruka’s 30 slopes provide something for everyone. They range from gentle slopes for beginners to taunting gradients for professional skiers. Slopes are located in different parts of a combination of four Arctic fells providing sheltered skiing every day. The illumination of the slopes creates a dreamlike atmosphere in the twilight.

The skiing season normally begins in mid-October and lasts until the middle of June, thanks to our 100 snowguns. The past 15 seasons have offered between 200 and 250 skiing days! Ruka has 20 lifts, 5 of which are chair lifts including RukaExpress, a detachable 6 seat chairlift with bubble. This is why lift queues seldom exceed 10 minutes, most days there is no wait at all.
