7 'Must Experience' Ski Resorts in Finland
There are over one hundred ski resorts in Finland. That’s quite a high number for a country that has no mountains. Instead of mountains, there are a great deal of hills, which are covered with snow for about 200 days a year. Finnish ski resorts are practically guaranteed to have snow for the whole season, which, at the first resorts, starts as early as October and ends, at the latest, in May. For this, we can thank our northern location and the efficient snowing systems.
You’ll find slopes to fit every skill level at Finnish ski resorts. Even small children and absolute beginners can enjoy skiing down the gentle family slopes. Most of the slopes are pretty easy, wide and not very long. But there are also some world-class race slopes that are challenging enough for experts, as well as plenty of parks and streets for snowboarders and new school skiers.
Depending on location, winter in Finland begins in November and can last up to five months, with temperatures ranging from a balmy zero to a lung-freezing minus 35.
