(Translated by Google) A landscape that will leave you enchanted as you descend. But the fog is very thick. I saw the scenery all day for 5 days. Great place for aurora hunting! (Original) 내려갈때 넋을 잃게 만드는 풍경. 다만 안개가 매우 짙다. 5일내내 하루 그풍경을 봤다. 오로라헌팅에 좋은장소! Read more Read lessHye yun Lee

Rinteet aivan huippu kunnossa aina ja lunta riittää pitkälle kevääseen rinteissä. Rinteet aivan huippuja varsinkin lasten kanssa laskemiseen ja temppuiluun. Suosittelen 👍🏼💪 huhtikuun viimeinen viikko alkaa ja rinteet edelleen huippukunnossa laskea!! Tulkaa nyt hyvät ihmiset vapuksi laskemaan kun lunta riittää rinteissä👍🏼👍🏼💪 (Translated by Google) The slopes are just in top condition at all times and there is plenty of snow well into the spring slopes. The slopes are absolutely top notch especially for downhill skiing and tricks. I recommend 👍🏼💪 the last week of April begins and the slopes are still in top condition to fall !! Now let the good people be down when there is enough snow on the slopes👍🏼👍🏼💪 Read more Read lessTimo Helén

Kiitos taas mahtavasta laskettelukokemuksesta! Kahden tunturin välissä oli jo vähän eroa kevätauringon lämmittäessä Kaunispään etelärinnettä. Upeat puitteet ja lapsiperheelle hyvin ystävällinen. Tarpeeksi kaukana kaikesta. (Translated by Google) Thanks again for an amazing downhill experience! There was already little difference between the two fells as the spring sun warmed the southern slope of Kaunispää. Great setting and very friendly for families with children. Far enough away from it all. Read more Read lessElisa Helava

Ski resort located in wonderful nature, in winter and summer as well. There's a variety of slopes, ideal for kids, families or beginning skiers as the drop and length of the slopes might be not that much demanding for advanced or experienced skiers. Rentals, restaurants and parking premises are located at the foot of the slopes. From this point also cross country skiing tracks are starting. Read more Read lessmato krajo
Lasketteluopetus pienelle eka kertaa rinteessä.. loistava innostava opettaja. Lapsi innostui lajista joten voisin sanoa ettei parempaa palautetta voi olla. Kiitos! Toista kertaa Saariselällä. Täydellinen, kaunis paikka josta löytyy upeat rinteet, turvallinen pulkkamäki ja hienot hiihtoladut. Myös palaneen Kuukkeli-kaupan tilalle avattu uusi upea Kuukkeli kauppakeskus Siulaan Saariselälle. (Translated by Google) Downhill skiing for the first time on the slopes .. great inspiring teacher. The child got excited about the sport so I could say there can be no better feedback. Thank you! For the second time in Saariselkä. Perfect, beautiful place with great slopes, a safe toboggan run and great ski trails. A magnificent new Kuukkeli shopping center in Siiselä, Saariselkä, has also been opened to replace the burnt Kuukkeli store. Read more Read lessNerolinkukka
