Snow sledding

Snow sledding is a kids’ favourite

When the more mature members of the family spend time on Ruka Slopes and other winter adventures, the smallest family members enjoy snow sledding.

Snow sledding in Ruka-Kuusamo is free of charge with the exception of Snow Tubing in Rosa & Rudolf Family Park, snow tobogganing on Ruka Slopes in the evenings and possible other snow sledding included in adventures and activities.  

Snow tubing

Rosa & Rudolf Family Park provides an action-packed Snow Tubing track that you can reach conveniently with magic carpet lifts. Snow tubes and helmets are available for everyone with a Family Park area pass and a ski pass.

Snow racing on Ruka Slopes

You can slide down Ruka Slopes 5, 16 and 18 in the evening with a snow racer, Saturday to Thursday, from 19:30 to 21:30, after the slopes have closed for skiers. There are a limited number of snow snow racers for hire!

Rent a snow sled, glider or toboggan

You can rent the equipment needed for snow sledding conveniently from Ruka village’s Piste rental shop or Ruka East’s VuosselinPortti rental shop. Snow gliders and sleds can be bought from RukaStore and Sale Ruka.

Ski-Inn borrows snow sleds free of charge for its guests from the reception of Ski-Inn Hotel RukaVillage. A limited supply of snow sleds, no advance reservations!
