Snow racing in ski slopes

When the ski day comes to and end, the snow racers take over the slopes!

Snow Racing in ski slopes

Come and experience the fun of snow racing in the slopes that are usually only for skiers and snowboarders. The first snow racer evening on season 2019–2020 is 7th of December 2019. 
Ride as much as you can in Saarua 16, 18 and Kuru 5 ski slopes between 7:30 pm and 9:30 pm on Saturday–Thursday. A transition to the top is done by a Village-2-Valley gondola. Snowracing is suitable for children as well as adults but please note that under 10 year olds can participate only with an adult supervision. You can take your own snow racer with you - make sure it has the brake string which stops the snow racer after crash.
 
Please note, that snow racing is not possible on Fridays, due to Night Skiing – Ruka ski slopes are open until 11 pm. 
 
If Village-2-Valley gondola is closed (e.g. due to high wind) snow racing is also cancelled. Check the opening hours of ski lifts >
 
 

Tickets and snow racer rental

Snow racer rental and ticket sales start at 7 pm in Piste Rental Shop. Snowracing starts at 7:30 pm, as soon as the slopes have been prepared for snowracing. There is a limited amount of snow racers and those are handed out to customers by arrival order. Some snow racers might return back to rental use during the evening since not everyone is racing the whole time period.
