Lapland ski areas Ruka and Levi open the season

The Lapland ski resorts Ruka and Levi opened the winter season this weekend.

Record-breaking early season opening was made possible by heavy winter snowfalls. Snow collected last winter is used on the slopes.

– It’s good here. The snow is soft as it is quite warm, but it does not bother me. It’s even more pleasant to ride this way. The day will be fun. All friends and a good atmosphere here. You can ski and it’s great, – the snowboarder Annie Rukajarvi .

The ski season in Levi will last until March 27, and in Ruka – until the second Sunday in May, shares his first impressions of the slope in Ruka.
