Vacant positions and work possibilities in Saariselkä

We’re hiring for winter 2021-2022!

Saariselkä Ski & Sport Resort is a family run ski center in Finnish Lapland founded in 1970. Our ski center is located on two fells – Kaunispää and Iisakkipää, and from the tops you have breathtaking views over Urho Kekkonen national park as well as towards Russia. Our Arctic location ensures that the winter season lasts from late November until May, making Saariselkä an excellent place to live for outdoor people and winter sports enthusiasts. Saariselkä offers great possibilities not only for alpine skiing and snowboarding, but also other recreational activities, and there are approximately 200 kilometers of nordic skiing trails. Winter in Saariselkä is magical, and during the season you will typically experience temperatures varying between -5°C and -30°C, sunrise and pastel color sky during polar night, northern lights during the nights and long sunny evenings towards the end of the winter season. Not to forget about winter adventures with your new friends. You just have to come and experience it for yourself.
