Lapsi Rukan rinteillä


Hello 10-year-old; welcome to join the Ruka snow monsters!

We offer a free RukaPyhä season pass for the winter season 2023–2024 to all children born in 2013 whose domicile is Kuusamo, Pelkosenniemi, Sodankylä, Kemijärvi or Savukoski. This way, we want to encourage young people to do snow sports and activate them to get the advantage of the services of the local ski resort.

This gesture is part of Ruka and Pyhä's extended responsibility program, which we started in 2019–2020. In the coming years, the tradition will continue so that those born in 2014 will receive season passes for the season 2024-2025 and so on.


How to redeem the RukaPyhä season pass:

  • Season passes for 10-year-olds can be redeemed at the ticket office of Rental Shop Alavuokraamo in Pyhä and the ticket office of PisteRental Shop in Ruka.
  • Redemption of the season pass is possible throughout the ski season within the opening hours of the ticket office. Ruka's season-opening goal is on Friday, October 6th, 2023.
  • The child must pick up the season pass with his parent/guardian. The child must be present when picking up the season ticket so that the child can be photographed for the season pass.
  • When picking up the pass, the ticket sales staff will verify the child's identity (e.g., Kela card or passport) and place of residence.
  • The season pass is uploaded to KeyCard. The charge for KeyCard is € 7 if the person redeeming the card does not already have one.
  • The child's home address is saved in our customer register when picking up the season pass.
  • We also collect the child's social security number for tax purposes when picking up the season pass.

Welcome to enjoy the joys of snow on the slopes of Ruka! If skiing or snowboarding is an entirely new sport, Ruka ski school is an excellent place to start your hobby.
