RUKA’S SNOW-HOW BRINGS WINTER TO THE COORDINATES OF SNOW
Due to first class snow-how, efficient snowmaking equipment and storing snow over summer, you can ski over 200 days in Ruka. Minus temperatures, snowfall or turning on snow cannons aren’t necessary features in order to get the season started, as the slope in Saarua is opened in autumn on the beforehand chosen day, thanks to the stored snow. When the minus temperatures arrive, Ruka’s snow cannons will be turned on in order to form snow covers lasting all winter long on the rest of the Ruka’s slopes. The snow stored over summer is made ready for the slopes during the cold winter temperatures, when the snow cannons can be utilized as energy efficiently as possible.
Ruka is one of the Europe’s most snow-sure ski resorts and at its best, your skiing experience is perfected by the soft natural snow banks, for which Ruka’s climate is truly ideal.
