Come and experience the fun and speed of snow racing on the slopes that are usually open only for skiers and snowboarders, slopes of Saarua 16, 18 and Kuru 5.

You can get to the top of Saarua with a snow racer on a Village-2-Valley scenic gondola, and you may ride as many times as you want between 7.30 p.m. and 9.30 p.m. The Evening Snow Racing is suitable for both children and adults. Children under the age of 10 can only participate under adult supervision. 

Please note that during this time the slopes are open only for snow racing. You may take your own snow racer with you – but make sure it has the brake string which stops the snow racer after crash.
If the gondola is closed (e.g. high winds), the snow racing will be cancelled. Check the lift opening hours
