Cottages and hotels at Finnish ski resorts
Where does skiing Finland start? It starts from Lapland. Here, in the far north of Finland are located major ski resorts of the country. The central and southern parts of Finland also offer tourists several resorts, but the elevation is much lower than in the north.
Lapland: Skiing in Finland as it is
In Lapland are located the highest mountains in Finland. In total in Lapland there are 22 ski resorts, the most famous of which are Ruka, Levi and Ylläs. Ylläs is the largest ski resort in Finland. It has the longest ski slopes in the country. Levi is the only ski resort in Finland, which is equipped with gondola lift. Levi resort is also known for its active night life. Finnish ski resort of Ruka near the border with Russia is considered to be one of the best places to stay in the country in any season.
The city of Rovaniemi is the "gateway" to the ski resorts of Lapland. In Rovaniemi is located an airport, which receives both local flights from Helsinki and international flights. Rovaniemi is one of the recognized centers of winter holidays in Finland. There are no steep slopes, but it is located near the world famous residence of Santa Claus, which makes the resort especially popular among family travelers.
Ski resorts in Finland: features
One of the best ski resorts in Lapland are Himos in the central part of Finland and Iso Syöte near Oulu.
Ski season in Finland lasts from November until mid-May.
The average cost of a weekly ski pass to the Finnish ski resorts ranges from 100 to 120 dollars per person.

In Finland, as in other Scandinavian countries, there is a special attitude towards children. Therefore, at most ski resorts in the country accommodation, ski passes and other services for children are offered for free or with discounts.
Finland is famous for its spa hotels. Ski resorts are no exception. Virtually every 3* hotel in Finland and higher has swimming pool and sauna. Thus, winter holidays in Finland will suit not only skiers, but also easy tourists, who are planning to spend New Year or Christmas in Finland.
