Had an unplanned stopover at Yllas ski resort. Signed up for a 90mins beginners ski lesson at ski school. The instructor was great. Took great care of us, and showed us the techniques. Is looks easy but is definitely not easy to learn within 90mins....More

Ylläs combines xcountry and downhill very well. Place has potential to cater several times more skiers. If you like good slopes for almost you alone this is your place to go

Excellent xc facilities. Probably best in Finland. Great condition and easy trails and breathtaking views. Downhill bit crowded in easter, but not really any problem. Long runs, wide runs and good shape. Lot of alternatives around tunturi. Ylläs is better than Levi for sport, but...More

Questions & Answers
Hi, I'm looking at Finland as a potential ski destination during half term 2018. I have 2 kids who'll be 12 & 10 at the time. We've ski'd for about 5 years and whilst the kids are very confident, I'm a non-confident red run skier and my wife is more of a blue run skier. Previously, we've ski'd in Austria, France, Italy and Andorra - so at some good altitudes. It looks like Finland has a few resorts that fit the bill, however I'm a bit concerned that the ski areas are too small and will be "exhausted" after a couple of days. I like to do some nice long cruisy blues, and I wonder if Finland's slopes (whilst I'm sure, very beautiful) will be over in 30 seconds! I guess the fear comes from previous trips where it's normal to have 1-2k feet of altitude gain to ski down. It would appear that Finland's resorts are nothing like this. I'd be hugely grateful for any advice/tips/info.
