Ounasvaara Outdoor Resort
Located just a couple of kilometres as the crow flies from the Rovaniemi town centre is a ski resort with outstanding ski slopes provide memorable and meaningful experiences for skiers of all ages.
Ounasvaara has a five-month skiing guarantee.
The so-called First Snow Slope opens in mid-November and the season lasts through to the end of April.
At the same time, Rendi’s Snow World is opened, which is the perfect place for younger kids and beginners.
The cross-country skiing season is even longer than the downhill skiing season, as the tracks are in use for around half the year.
Ounasvaara has eleven slopes and two areas for children to practice. The profile of the main slope is easy-going and the slopes are so wide that there is plenty of room for safely accommodating beginners and more experienced skiers.
The Tottorakka slopes offer more challenging slope profiles. For freeriders there’s the Free Ride Slope and the challenging Tree Ride forest slope.
The new and long eastern slope opening for the 2019–2020 winter season is gently sloping and offers easygoing downhill skiing covering a distance of 1,500 metres, and this slope can be used to access the more challenging Tottorakka slope.
At Rendi’s Snow World, beginners will be able to learn downhill skiing safely on a large, dedicated ski slope area. Ascending the slope is easy using the magic carpet ski lift.
For a different kind of fun there’s Rendi’s Tube Slope and the Snow Carousel. Find snowboarder and park jumps, rails and presses at Snow Park.
Ounasvaara also has a network of cross-country skiing tracks covering a hundred kilometres. The ski resort also has a hire shop, ski school and Alpenjäger restaurant.
The ski resort opens every day for the entire season at 10 am. During weekdays, the slopes are open through to 7 p.m. and at weekends till 5 p.m.
You can easily and cheaply extend your skiing holiday in the fell highlands. Belonging to the Lapland Hotels chain, Ounasvaara Ski Resort has a shared ski pass system with three other ski resorts; Luosto, Pallas and Olos.
Ounasvaara ski passes are valid for all three fell highland resorts.
