Ylläs  is the largest ski resort in Finland. The Ylläs hill itself is 719m high. There are two villages, one on the northern side called Äkäslompolo and one on the southern side called Ylläsjärvi. Äkäslompolo is the original ski village. From both sides you have equal access to the slopes. By skiing the Finns understand cross-country skiing, which takes place on ski-tracks in nature. In Ylläs area there are alltogether 330 kilometers of ski-tracks, out of which 38 kilometers are illuminated.

If you have downhill skiing in mind, you could not choose a better destination in Finland as Ylläs is the biggest ski resort with its 63 slopes, 20 ski lifts and 53 slope kilometers.

In February the days are often sunny but it might be very cold. For activities you will get extra warm overalls, boos, gloves and hats but for skiing you should be prepared with winter clothes. It is best to dress in layers: thermal underwear frist, then fleece middleswear and then winter outfit on top. 100% woollen socks are necessary. Please note that often morning are colder than the afternoons but some days might be freezing. That is why it is better to have some flexibility in schedule.
