Skiing & cross-country skiing

Vuokatti XC skiing track opens annually on 10.10. at 10:00. The track is at first covered with the snow stored throughout the summer. Natural snow comes in November-December, and the season continues until April.

Many routes start in the yard of Vuokatti Sports Institute, at the crossroad of around 150 km of various trails, such as traditional ones, or tracks for freestyle skiing. About 32 km of the trail network is illuminated. Connecting ski tracks conveniently start at Vuokatti Sport, which makes it easy to change trails and enjoy the variety of routes in the region.

Downhill skiing and snowboarding

13 well-groomed versatile Vuokatti slopes guarantee fun for all the family. For beginners we recommend starting on an easy Maxin Lumimaailma trail. Experienced sportsmen can choose Olympiakatti, SuperPipe and Freestyle park slope that correspond to all international competition standards.

Two Vuokatti Rental Offices are situated on the West and North slopes, at lower stations. In the same buildings you can find equipment maintenance services and SportShop with all necessary clothes and equipment of best sport brands are in sale.

Experienced professional instructors from Vuokatti Ski School will guide the beginners through their first moves on the slope and share their tips for improving the technique with frequent guests of ski resorts. Vuokatti Ski School also specializes on providing trainings for disabled people.

À la Katti and Pirtti restaurants, Hesburger and Ripa’s Kuppila are at you service to make sure you don’t get hungry or tired on the slopes.
