As winter turns into spring, Ruka ski resort transforms into a playground for park riders and fun park obstacles and creative lines can be found just about anywhere on the ski area.
A bit like the famous event arena of Wappulounas, but the Playground is not made only for one event, but from the beginning of April until the 1st of May 2022.
Ruka Playground consists of several unique areas - a snow park take over you thought only existed in your wildest dreams!
What? Ruka Playground transforms the ski resort into a playground for park riders as fun park obstacles and creative lines can be found just about anywhere on the ski area.
When? 1.4.–1.5.2022. Ruka Playground is open for everyone every day. Ruka Playground areas and obstacles will be regularly shaped from the beginning of April to the beginning of May to allow skiers and snowboarders to enjoy well-maintained spots throughout the spring.
Explore the area
Where? Ruka Playground is divided into several different areas or spots. Ruka Park and Rosa Park are well-known snow parks that can already be found in Ruka, and the obstacles are kept in the best shape until the end of the season. In addition, multiple Ruka Playground spots will open in the beginning of April.
Located in the Saarua ski area, Ruka Park (slopes 14 and 15) is the most versatile snow park area in Finland with two slopes full of kickers, rails, press boxes and other park obstacles for all levels of snowboarders and freeskiers. Ruka Park also houses the only full-size Landing bag in the Nordic countries.
Rosa Park is located in front of the Ski Bistro (Bistro Slope 21) and it is the best place to start park riding. Small kickers and easy press boxes are perfect for practicing your first jumps and tricks.
DARKSIDE DIRT RUN
Darkside Dirt Run is built next to Vuosseli’s Superpipe (slope 25). There's a dirt track full of feisty little kickers and a snow bowl. The area is known as "Darkside" by locals because of the lack of lighting on the slope. But that will not be a problem when the spring sun shines!
Hush-hush! We will also build some special Secret Spots around the ski resort - we're not going to tell you the exact locations, finders keepers! We might also build some new ones during the spring, so keep your eyes out for some surprises.
To whom? Obstacles are designed so that they are suitable for the full send as well as mellow cruising and practicing your tricks. If you like to ride park or other fun features made of snow, Ruka Playground is for you.
